This resource is structured around the ESSENTIALS OF MATH INSTRUCTION:

The top menu provides a single verb, bearing in mind that many Indigenous languages are verb-based. You will also find that most graphic representations in this resource are circular, further connecting to Indigenous ways of understanding the world in that the concepts in mathematics are interwoven and not linear. Nor are they to be considered in isolation but all things in the realm of mathematics and mathematics instruction are interrelated and connected.

Clicking on the verb menu buttons will provide a summary page of that section with corresponding quick links.

    • Hovering over that menu button will bring you to a drop down menu with the full title and description of that section.
    • Clicking on the drop down will bring you to a more detailed summary.
    • Hovering over these menu items will give you a further menu tab to the right which will provide specific detailed content.
    • Those items are listed below for your reference as a clickable (interactive) site map. Clicking on the titles will guide you to that section of this resource.
