Math First Peoples: Teaching Mathematics in a First Peoples Context, Grades 8 and 9

The Math First Peoples Resource Guide is designed to help teachers of Mathematics 8 and 9 in British Columbia (BC) extend their existing practice to incorporate new approaches that make the BC school system more reflective of the realities of First Peoples in this province and improve overall levels of student success when it comes to meeting provincially prescribed standards for mathematics at these grade levels. It is based on the belief that by bringing content, perspectives, and teaching approaches associated with First Peoples into the math classroom, teachers will help all students better appreciate the presence and importance of mathematics and mathematical thinking within all human cultures and activities give all students a better sense of the significant place of First Peoples within the historical and contemporary fabric of this province.
