A Positive Mathematics Journey

ChrisMatthews-web1

Presenter: Dr Chris Matthews Aug 13: 3:30-4:30pm EST

In this webinar, A Positive Mathematics Journey, Chris will share some of his story as an Aboriginal student who survived the education system by thriving on mathematics to become an Aboriginal mathematician and gain a Doctorate in Applied Mathematics.

Chris will discuss his thoughts and perception on what mathematics is (or might be) and how mathematics teaching can lead to a positive sense of identity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders students as learners of mathematics. It will include discussion about how teaching can allow students to relate mathematics to their own reality and what teachers might need to consider when developing responsive mathematics pedagogy.
