Mathematics and Culture in Micronesia: The Structure and Function of a Capacity Building Project
Dawson, A. J. Sandy
Mathematics Education Research Journal, v25 n1 p43-56 Mar 2013
The first goal of this Project is the development of elementary school mathematics curricula sensitive to indigenous mathematical thought and experience. A necessary prerequisite for the achievement of this goal is to recapture and honor the mathematics developed and practiced in the Micronesian communities. This is the Project's second goal. The third goal of the project is to build local capacity by offering advanced degree opportunities to the indigenous mathematics educators who transform what they find in their local cultural practices into grades 1, 4, and 7 mathematics curriculum units.
