Mathematics talent abounds in Indigenous communities


"On the occasion of National Indigenous Peoples Day, I would like to show how ubiquitous mathematics — and mathematics talent — is within Indigenous cultures. As a mathematician who immigrated to Canada, and who has worked at universities for most of my adult life, my teaching and learning experiences have shown me this first hand.

The main goal of the program is to encourage both Indigenous and non-Indigenous students to discover the joy and appeal of mathematics in the hope that they may better understand the presence of math and its importance in everyday life, and consider mathematics as a field of study and vocation."
