Indigenous Education K-12


“Mathematics is integral to every aspect of daily life—social, economic, and environmental. It is part of the story of human history. First Peoples in British Columbia, like Indigenous people around the world, used and continue to use mathematical knowledge, skills, and attitudes to make sense of the world around them.” 

Teaching mathematics through an Indigenous lens enables students to "explore how mathematics complements and includes other ways of knowing, including Indigenous knowledge." (From BC Curriculum, Aboriginal Education).
