The Math Catcher Outreach Progam Is In The News Again!
The Math Catcher Outreach Program aims to tackle the stigma surrounding mathematics among Indigenous and nonIndgenous youth through a series of initiatives. These include school visits, workshops, academic summer camps, tutoring programs, and creation of learning resources in various First Nation languages. The aims of the program are straightforward: to demonstrate that mathematics is part of everyday life and consistent with Indigenous culture; to prove that mathematics can be interesting and even fun; and to emphasize that mathematics can lead to a rewarding future.
Math Catcher introduces mathematics and science to Aboriginal students through the use of First Nations imagery and storytelling. Math Catcher has produced 9 animated films in several First Nations languages (Blackfoot, Cree, Squamish, Heiltsuk, Nisga’a, Sliammon, Halq’em ́eylem, Hul’q’umi’num’, and Huuay aht) as well as bilingual picture books in Blackfoot/English, Cree/English, Squamish/English, Nisga’a/English, and Sliammon/English.
The Program is based on the belief that it is crucial that we engage Aboriginal students in mathematics and science at the early age.
