Funds of Knowledge of Sorting and Patterning: Networks of Exchange in a Torres Strait Island Community
Ewing, Bronwyn
Australian Journal of Indigenous Education, v41 n2 p131-138 Dec 2012
This article focuses on the funds of knowledge that are mathematical in nature and how they might be used to support parents and children with their learning of mathematics that is taught and learned in the early years of school. Funds of knowledges are those that have been historically and culturally accumulated into a body of knowledge and skills essential for people's functioning and wellbeing. Drawing on community research design, where the process of learning is owned and framed by the community and its people, a consultative meeting was held to discuss the pilot project.
