Please join us for the 8th Aboriginal Math K-12 Symposium at the First Nations Longhouse, UBC on May 17 2018.

This symposium is an opportunity for teachers, administrators, Ministry representatives, community members, and academics to connect, explore, imagine and share new ideas, resources and research on Aboriginal mathematics education from kindergarten to Grade 12. Together we hope to:

  • Learn about new research in mathematics and Aboriginal education
  • Discuss and share approaches, research and educational projects for improving Aboriginal math education
  • Develop community connections to facilitate and support improving Aboriginal math education

This year Mohawk mathematician Dr. Ed Doolittle of First Nations University of Canada,  will join us to provoke our thinking about mathematics, learning, and land.
