Aboriginal Perspectives
Aboriginal Perspectives is a companion web site to Math Central. It is part of Mathematics with a Human Face. The purpose is to create and make available lesson ideas for teachers, constructed around video clips with an Aboriginal focus. The site is under construction and in its infancy but the intent is that the number of video clips will increase and the lessons will span all areas of the curriculum.

Aboriginal resources in mathematics education
Karen designed this website to assist teachers and pre-service teachers in the area of mathematics from Kindergarten to Grade 12 . Here you will find a multitude of teacher resources to assist you in incorporating Aboriginal content in your mathematics program.
Atlatl Lessons Grades 4-12
The atlatl and dart, the predecessor to the bow and arrow, was very important in the lives of Aboriginals in Saskatchewan and all over the world up until about 2000 years ago. Experiment based lessons allow students to learn about the science behind the weapon system that put humans on top of the food chain. Subject integrated lessons for grades 4-12 in the areas of math, science and social studies based on Saskatchewan curriculum objectives.
Garden Shed Project
Larry designed this kit as a project in a mathematics methods class. In it he describes ten activities that result in the construction of a garden shed. The project is geared to students in grades 8 and 9. In constructing the shed students are required to perform geometric measurements, calculate/estimate materials and costs, understand scale in the reading of blueprints and perform many problem solving activities.
Math on the Farm
This article discusses some of the many ways in which math is used in agriculture. It considers specific agriculture processes, as well as a variety of math concepts.
On MY Mind (HTML or PDF)
In this note we consider a problem involving the ratio of two unknowns and contrast an algebraic solution with a graphic approach.
Performance Stations in Math (HTML or PDF)
Liliane Gauthier has written a collection of performance stations for mathematics, grades 6, 7, 8 and 9. Many of the stations have been designed as assessment tools for the Saskatchewan curriculum but teachers may choose to use them as introductory activities, practice activities or centre activities. This document contain a description of performance stations and how they might be used for performance assessment. To go directly to the performance stations select a grade level from grade 6 , grade 7, grade 8 and grade 9.
Size small school
In this grades 7 to 9 activity students make measurements of their school and then construct a scale drawing.
Surface Area to Volume Ratio
Help student discovery the relationship between surface area and volume through various activities. Once concept is attained, follow up with activities on where the surface area to volume ratio is found in the real world.
