Dear Aboriginal Math Symposium participant

Registration for the 6th Aboriginal Math Symposium is now available at:
Thanks for your patience.
We are fine tuning the program and will send it to you shortly.
We’d like to acknowledge the rich work you and those in the network are doing by celebrating opportunities to learn from each other. So we’d like to create a list of Lesson Activity Titles (No! not the whole lesson – just the Title) with connections to contributors so we know what we’re trying out, experimenting, and playing with for connecting math and Aboriginal/Indigenous education.
This is great opportunity to learn from each other. When registering click “Yes” to offer a title for a lesson that you’ve tried or are working on.
Please let us know if you have any questions by contacting Kwesi Yaro our Aboriginal Math Symposium Graduate Assistant at kwesi.yaro@alumni.ubc.ca
