Join us for our monthly Scene and Heard Film Series this month we will be screening, Navajo Math Circles. After the film there will be a discussion with ASU Faculty lecturer Michael Little Crow (Turtle Mountain Anishinaabe-Cree) on the connection between mathematical and cultural concepts of weaving textiles.
Navajo Math Circles follows Navajo students in a lively collaboration with mathematicians. Using a model called math circles, the students stay late after school and assemble over the summer at Diné College in Tsaile, Ariz., to study mathematics. The math circles approach emphasizes student-centered learning by putting children in charge of exploring mathematics to their own joy and satisfaction.
Runtime 60 minutes.
