Education

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.
