Free Summer Math Program Offered at UH West Oahu

ShareThis

UH West Oahu is offering a free summer math program that adds up to one unique experience.

15 students will be selected to participate in the Ethnomathematics Summer Institute --- a curriculum that combines math with the culture and history of Hawaii.

Students take what they learn in the classroom and apply it to real life situations. Field studies range from learning how to sail with the Polynesian Voyaging Society to studying the site of Oahu’s last Hawaiian fishing village.

UH West Oahu’s Dr. Linda Furuto heads the program that’s now in its 5th year. She has fond memories of last year’s group and is hoping for another transformative experience.
