Native Math and Science Listserve


We are in the process of re-designing the listserv and the website. Over the next few months you will receive updates including information about math and science lessons and activities you can use with your students. We are pleased to let you know that the listserv notices will become a regular feature of the expanded Aboriginal Access to Engineering Program (AAEP) now in development at Queen's University Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science located in Kingston, Ontario. If you know other teachers who might be interested in joining this listserv, please forward our message to them.

To help build a strong Calendar of Events for teachers in all geographical regions and for them to receive the maximum benefits about events taking place within their province/state, please send us an email at to inform us of any Career Days, Career Fairs, Job Fairs, Career Symposiums designed for Aboriginal/Native American students within your high school or close to your community. Are you aware of any math and science teacher meetings, teacher association meetings, subject association meetings, conferences, workshops, or conventions that would be of interest to math and science teachers? Please provide the date, location and website so that we may pass it along through our Calendar of Events.

In the meantime, here is a current list of good professional development opportunities that are taking place over the coming year.
  1. Council of Ministers of Education Canada
    The CMEC Educators’ Forum on Aboriginal Education, Winnipeg, Manitoba, December 1-3, 2011.

We're looking forward to passing along more lesson plans, curriculum ideas, great websites, and other resources that you can use with your Native students.  If you have any suggestions for other listserv content, we'll be pleased to hear from you.
