Bluebird Math Circle​

For Teachers

Dear Teacher,
The Alliance of Indigenous Math Circles appreciates your involvement with the Bluebird Math Circle. We offer you a certificate granting 3 PD hours when you:

  • participate in a live Bluebird MC meeting,
  • use the materials after the meeting with a group of people: students, or parents, or neighbors, or other teachers,
  • talk to us about that experience via a Zoom meeting or a phone call.

Get in Touch

You are welcome to receive these certificates multiple times—as many times as you come to Bluebird MC meetings and implement the materials as described above.

“The main reason that I love to teach math is because I was never good at math when I was a student. I always was the student that thought, “I’m so bad at this, and I’ll never get it.” Then, when I was offered the opportunity to get my math teaching degree, I had excellent teachers, who valued what I thought, and who showed me different ways and modeling and how to teach and how to make those connections. So I want to be such a teacher.”

“I wanted to use it as a warm up activity, but it just took off to where we used up all the time yesterday. Oh, I had kids that didn’t speak up, I had kids that were quiet. I had kids that were shy. And they were the most active. They were the ones who wanted to try to do it.”
