REL Central Administered by Mathematica

Standing Rock Tribal Education Department is partnering with Sitting Bull College, Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Central, and Standing Rock schools, educators, Elders, parents/caregivers, and community members to apply Dakota/Lakota ways of thinking to create math lessons for children in third through fifth grades. The Partnership will develop a community to learn about culture-based education and math practices, conduct an inventory of current math practices in Standing Rock and select content to use for designing the culture-based math modules, and help learners in Standing Rock schools understand the relevance of math in their lives and increase their engagement with math both in school and at home.
