Math was something that I struggled in, in elementary school. Most of my teachers used other resources to teach math like, Khan Academy. In high school math definitely made a lot more sense to me and I improved drastically with my math skills. I think it was because the teachers actually were passionate about teaching math and cared to help the students in the spare time. I spent a lot of lunches in the math rooms to help build my skills. Looking back the teachers that helped me with my math were always kind and fun to be around, honestly me and my friends would hang out in their rooms without having any math problems. I always thought math was taught one way and everyone had to do it that way, it was not until later in my schooling that I figured out that math can be solved in so many different ways.
The main difference with Inuit math is the language differences. The development of the numeration system is influenced by the culture, language and environment. The difference between Eurocentric math and Inuit math is that we don’t focus on the culture, language and environment as much. Being able to solve equations and finding points on the graph seems to be the bigger aspect of Eurocentric math. The aspects of math is not a universal language, as many different country’s and cultures have developed different tools to solve math problems. Traditional Inuit teaching is based on observing an elder. This is different than what most of people are aware of where the teacher would teach from the front of the class and students would then listen and write, rather then observing.
