The book, Tluuwaay ‘Waadluxan Mathematical Adventures, is designed to expand our awareness and relationship with the land, sea and sky – and transform possibilities for teaching and learning mathematics. Cynthia Nicol, one of the co-editors who collaborated with the authors of the book (teachers and community members of Haida Gwaii), is an Associate Professor in the Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy at the University of British Columbia Faculty of Education. She shares some of the math activities and examples in the book that involve the bentwood box, the canoe, historical dates and timelines from the People’s perspective, and more.
