About the Session

This workshop shares student centered ways of honouring the many Indigenous ways of knowing math. Long before math concepts were named and defined, Indigenous people were creating mathematical connections and applying them to everyday situations. Teachers will learn how to help students make connections before naming and defining the concepts.

This learning opportunity is being offered through a grant from Alberta Education.
