‘Bobbie maths’ raising Pasifika achievement A revolution in maths achievement using a culturally-tailored approach developed at Massey University is attracting worldwide attention, and making a difference in the lives of South Auckland school children. Associate Professor Roberta (Bobbie) Hunter developed the inquiry-based approach aimed at raising maths achievement in low decile schools with predominantly Pasifika students for her PhD five years ago.

It’s about bringing in real world common sense to maths inquiry,” she says.
