First Peoples Context: Grades 8 & 9
A new Mathematics 8 and 9 Teacher Resource Guide called Teaching Mathematics in a First Peoples Context: Grades 8 and 9 is now available on the First Nations Education Steering Committee (FNESC) website.
This Guide is designed to help teachers of Mathematics 8 and 9 in British Columbia extend their existing practice to incorporate new approaches that make the BC school system more reflective of the realities of First Peoples in BC, and improve overall levels of student success when it comes to meeting provincially prescribed standards for Mathematics at these grade levels.
The Guide has been developed by FNESC with assistance from the British Columbia Ministry of Education and support from the Education Partnerships Program of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada.
