Grade 9 Students Learn about Traditional Indigenous Mathematics

Last week, Mr. Moorlag's Grade 9 Math students took a break from their textbooks and participated in listening to a livestream hosted by the Ontario Science Centre, featuring Bryan Bellefeuille, Anishinaabe of the Nipissing First Nation.
Mr. "Belle" discussed the use of traditional indigenous mathematics - from making tools and measuring trees to building canoes and cooking meals.

The students enjoyed participating in the live chat, and asked and answered quite a few questions to better understand the way mathematics is used in Indigenous communities.
