Why teach all Australian kids about Aboriginal maths?
Teaching Australian children about Aboriginal maths provides a great opportunity to:
- recognise the number patterns that occur in addition and subtraction
- debunk myths about the limitations of Aboriginal counting
- reinforce number rules from mainstream maths lessons
- appreciate that there are different number systems to our own.
A great addition to your collection of First Nations resources
The content in this poster addresses the cross-curricular priority of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Culture. It could also be used to guide conversations with your students in conjunction with NAIDOC Week celebrations.
