Indigenous and Māori culture maths teaching and learning resources

Guest Post from Adjunct Associate Professor, Bronwyn Ewing

My colleague Professor Grace Sarra and I are very proud to provide freely to the global community of educators 43 Indigenous and Māori culture/maths posters which can be used in pre-service/in-service teacher programs, school classrooms across primary and secondary schooling, TAFE classrooms and in the Community.

The posters were designed, created and produced from funding awarded by the Australian Research Council – Indigenous Discovery Grant IN150100045 (2016-2023) “Unlocking the Learning Potential of Incarcerated Indigenous and low SES young people in Queensland, Australia”. We developed and applied Culturally Responsive Pedagogy and Community Cultural Wealth to arrive at the final suite of posters for you to use in your teaching.

We have also published a book about the project Educating Indigenous Children in Australian Juvenile Justice Systems: Culturally Responsive Pedagogy in Mathematics If you are wanting to learn more about Culturally Responsive Pedagogy and Community Cultural Wealth, click on the book title, you will then be taken to the ePrint record for the book, where Chapter Five of the book will become open access early next year. In the meantime, access can be requested via the ‘Request a copy’ button.

Grace and I acknowledge the contributions of the research team, Chelsey Priddle and Vicky Punter; the leadership team, teachers and children/young people in one juvenile detention centre and community members. Thank you for your support in this project. You are welcome to share this to your networks who may find the resources useful.
