    ‘A‘ohe pau ka ‘ike i ka hālau ho‘okahi – All knowledge is not taught in the same school

    One can learn from many sources (‘Ōlelo No‘eau #203)

    INVITATION TO ALL TEACHERS (not just math)—earn a graduate certificate in Ethnomathematics from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa College of Education in 11 months. Participants may extend the certificate to a master’s degree with the completion of additional coursework and requirements.  In addition, participants already holding a license in the State of Hawai‘i may add-a-field of licensure in ethnomathematics through the Hawai‘i Teacher Standards Board (applied for).

    Ethnomathematics is the integration of Indigenous wisdom and 21st century technology through real-world applications of mathematics that are relevant, contextualized, and sustainable.  Please see the flyer and brochure attached.

    "No other academic degree program is known to exist in ethnomathematics in the world.  Thus, the Ethnomathematics Graduate Certificate has the potential to contribute to the development of mathematical sciences, redefine pathways to accessing knowledge, and promote international cooperation in mathematics."

    Ferdinando Arzarello

    International Commission on Mathematical Instruction (ICMI) Former President

    We invite you to voyage with us and discover interdisciplinary pathways that foster multiple approaches to teaching and learning mathematics in project-based and place-based experiences.

    To apply (deadline: February 15, 2018):

      *   Bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution (any field)

      *   Grade point average: 3.0 or above

      *   Teaching experience in P-20 (early childhood education through university) or equivalent experience

      *   2 letters of recommendation

      *   Statement of purpose

    The graduate certificate is not a licensure program, but is intended to inform, inspire, and rejuvenate licensed teachers or others interested in the field of ethnomathematics.
