Indigenuity

Indigenous = of a place

Ingenius = very clever

Indigenuity = living in a place in a clever, sustainable way

Maths can help students makes sense of their world, to start to own it and to start to see ways to live more sustainably. Maths is an important component of indigenuity and teaching maths the indigenuity way invites you to bring together the following elements:

  • Mathematics, measurements,
  • The place you are in
  • Yourself, the student.

The methodology is to:

  • teach the basic mathematics
  • apply it to a sustainability challenge in general
  • apply it to the place you are in

The work is more like getting the students to work in a workshop/lab type mode where they are looking at the world and putting themselves in it.
