Announcing Growing Math Project to Meet Immediate Educational Needs of Indigenous Students and Educators during COVID-19

Growing Math will provide ready-to-roll-out lessons and games combining math, agricultural science and Indigenous history and culture that can be easily used in classrooms, via hybrid models or through distance learning. The project will directly address the problems identified by schools, including increasing attendance and improving student math scores while engaging students.

The project will provide resources, curriculum, training and tech support to 1,500 teachers and serve 27,000 students in Grades 3-8 at schools in six states: Arizona, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon and South Dakota.
