2013 University of Hawaii Ethnomathematics Summer Institute

The University of Hawai‘i Ethnomathematics Institute brings together UH faculty, staff, and students to design and implement mathematics grounded in the ethnic, historical, and cultural diversities of Hawai‘i. In addition to classroom learning, institute scholars participate in field studies to the Hawai‘i Institute of Marine Biology’s Coconut Island in Kane‘ohe Bay, Mokauea Island Fishing Village in Ke‘ehi Lagoon, Polynesian Voyaging Society, and Kalaupapa National Historical Park on the island of Moloka‘i. The institute culminates in a research and practicum-based textbook that may be used by current educators to supplement mathematics curriculum, and future teachers as training material.
