From Patterns to Linear Expressions in Storied Indigenous Context

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this hands-on workshop we will share a cross-curricular, cross-grade unit that takes learners from simple patterning in late primary and moves them forward on a mathematical journey where they will encounter stories and songs that incorporate Indigenous languages, oral histories, supernatural creatures, cedar weaving and, eventually, a concrete comprehension of linear expressions and algebraic understanding at the early secondary level. This unit was developed in collaboration with local Indigenous knowledge holders, literature, oral histories, art and design. Take home lesson plans, weave with faux cedar, and gather great new ideas!
