Welcome to Math: Resources 

FNESC has created a First Peoples Grades 8 and 9 Math Teacher Resource Guide.

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

  • Help their Aboriginal students in particular to feel more comfortable in mathematics learning situations and more motivated to participate and focus – thus becoming able to learn more effectively, experience increased academic success, and develop numeracy concepts and skills for lifelong use.
