Aboriginal Math Symposium

Dear Friends

Registration for this year’s Aboriginal Math Symposium with theme Living Mathematics in Our Communities: Listening to the Land is now open. 

Date: Thursday May 17, 2018 at Sty-Wet-Tan Hall First Nations Longhouse, UBC

Featuring: Dr. Ed Doolittle of First Nations University of Canada will introduce us to Geometries of Liberation in thinking about mathematics, communities and land.

Full program will be available by mid April.

Please visit the Aboriginal Math Network for updates: http://blogs.ubc.ca/aboriginalmathnetwork/

A highlight of the Symposium is sharing by attendees of beginning or ongoing projects that connect math, community and culture. If you have a lesson/project, big or small, please consider sharing your experience so we can learn from/with each other.

Look forward to seeing you in May.

Thank you to our sponsors: First Nations House of Learning, Indigenous Education Institute of Canada, NITEP, Faculty of Education, PIMS, The Actuarial Foundation of Canada, and the David F. Robitaille Professorship in Mathematics and Science Education.
