More about the program
Through the project, SHI will increase knowledge of teachers in Tlingit cultural traditions, protocols and art as they affect mathematical learning.
SHI will also produce, field test and disseminate a series of supplemental math resources that incorporate tlingit culture and language geared for beginning algebra and geometry courses.
SHI is building the model for use in Southeast Alaska by adapting nationally recognized, successful math programs developed by other organizations outside the region.
