Improving Aboriginal Numeracy


Thelma Perso

Price $ 40.00


A thorough discussion of background and issues together with explicit identification of their classroom implications.

A valuable resource to help teachers meet the needs of Aboriginal students in mathematics. The result of wide consultation and research, this book provides not only a thorough discussion of background and issues but also explicit identification of their implications in the classroom. General discussion of Aboriginal children and schooling, Aboriginal culture and mathematics and the teaching of mathematics in schools is followed by a model for teaching mathematics to Aboriginal children. In the context of these issues, specific suggestions are provided for teaching key ideas about Number, Measurement, Space, and Chance and Data. This is an excellent resource for teachers seeking to work with and use the understandings their Indigenous students bring with them into the classroom.
