Maths-Whizz starts each year on 22nd September and from that point on we have specific start dates for part-subscriptions, see below for details.

Due to member demand NCHENZ has successfully negotiated a bulk subscription to Maths-Whizz. Our subscription price per student per year is $44. This includes access to the comprehensive reports interface which provides details about your child’s progress and information such as their “maths age”, how they have fared on every topic and the progression since they started, summaries of work completed and assessments, etc.

You can sign up to do a free trial from the website. There is also a tutorial on YouTube which outlines the program and another YouTube clip on the parent report interface.

The subscription will begin on 22nd September 2018 and run until 21st September 2019. If you subscribe after this date we can add additional students in groups of at least ten at a pro-rata price (end date of 21st September 2019 will remain the same no matter when you start). We cannot add students in for the last six months of the subscription, please wait until the renewal date.

Enrolments close two days before the start date as set up is handled from the UK. Late enrolments cannot be accommodated.
Start dates for 2018/19 are:
– 22nd September 2018 (main group starts, 12 month subscription), $44 per student
– 29th October 2018* (11 month subscription), $40 per student
– 22nd January 2019* (8 month subscription), $30 per student
– 22nd March 2019* (6 month subscription, $23 per student

* Can go ahead only if we have a minimum of ten students.

Refund policy:

As a free trial of this program is available to members before enrolment, the NCHENZ policy is not to give refunds if you change your mind after making payment unless there are exceptional circumstances. If you feel you have exceptional reasons for requesting a refund, please write to the NCHENZ Committee at services@nchenz.org.nz and they will consider your request. NCHENZ will have paid the supplier for your subscription so any refund is dependent on NCHENZ being able to ‘re-sell’ your subscription to another member. This may not be at the same price you paid for the subscription. In the case where a refund is approved, the amount will depend on the ‘re-sale’ price and the price NCHENZ paid the supplier for the subscription. Any refund will be paid to the original payer only and a NZ bank account number must be provided. An administration fee of $5 will be deducted from all refunds.

“Maths-Whizz is by far the best maths programme I have ever come across. The animated lessons make learning a fun and engaging experience. The parent reports are a fantastic way of keeping track of your child’s progress in different areas. My son actually asks to do Maths-Whizz he loves it so much, and as a consequence, is excelling in maths beyond his age.”

“My 11 year old is crazy about Maths-Whizz, he can’t wait to hop on the computer (which is a great incentive to get his book work done first). He is learning heaps and loves to receive challenges from other students, and stickers and messages from us.”

“For the first time the kids actually ASK to do maths! Maths-Whizz is a very comprehensive programme that, while having fun, the children are also exposed to tutorials in specific areas in which they are demonstrating weaknesses. The teacher resources are extensive and easily accessible.”

 

Please note:

While NCHENZ is appreciative of being able to offer a reduced Maths-Whizz subscription to members, please note that this should not be seen as an endorsement or promotion of the program. We offer this as a service to our members simply because the opportunity has arisen and we think our members will be interested.
