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.
