The Ethnomathematics program at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa prepares high-quality educators across a variety of disciplines as educational and community leaders. Through a sense of purpose and a sense of place the program empowers participants to be locally-minded, global citizens.
Education is a core part of our mission. We seek to develop teacher leaders in ethnomathematics through academic programs, professional development, and curriculum resources. Our teacher leaders engage with students in solving rigorous, relevant, and contextualized mathematical tasks. In this section, we invite you to explore our curriculum library and blog posts for strategies to incorporate ethnomathematics in the classroom.
A key part of our mission is to create and nurture sustainable relationships among educators, alumni, and community partners in Hawai‘i and around the world.
We collaborate with local and global scholars to increase the knowledge base in ethnomathematics and related fields, disseminate outcomes, and support educator-designed action research.
