The First Nations Education Steering Committee (FNESC) and First Nations Schools Association (FNSA) invite you to explore the revised FNESC/FNSA Math First Peoples (Elementary & Secondary) Teacher Resource Guide (2020) and discuss its applications in the classroom. The guide is designed for teachers of mathematics in British Columbia.

- Contemporary Cultural Artefacts
- Ceremony and Storytelling
- “Space” and the Cosmos
- Sustenance from the Land
- The Built Environment
- Sustaining the Land and Water
At this workshop teachers will explore its Introduction/Foundations, discuss implementation of its lessons/activities, and participate in small group break-out sessions.
