Second Call


IndigMEC is a meeting place for people around the world who engage in Indigenous mathematics education; teachers, parents, teacher students, master students and researchers. The aim of the conference is for teachers and researchers to present examples of culturally responsive mathematics teaching. Examples from work carried out with Sámi students will be highlighted. However, there will be opportunities to compare and relate this work to similar work in other parts of the world, especially in New Zealand and Canada. It is anticipated that sharing the similarities and differences between Indigenous peoples will contribute to developing more informed responses to Sámi mathematics teachers’ challenges and possibilities. The conference will be arranged around plenary speeches, poster sessions, teacher presentations, paper presentations and round table discussions.

Confirmed keynote speakers:


January 12th 2017: Deadline for extended abstract for papers and posters.

March 10th 2017: Deadline for papers.

April 28th 2017: Deadline for teacher presentations.

We call for three categories of contributions: Papers, posters and teacher contributions.

We call for contributions that are about

 Indigenous mathematics education; such as examples of culturally responsive mathematics teaching, curriculum studies, home-school cooperation, students’ experiences, teachers’ experiences.

We particularly welcome mathematics teachers to share their experiences.

As this will be an international conference we prefer that English is used for the discussions.

Presentations given in Sámi languages will be translated to English during the conference.
