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.
The deadline to apply to the Ethnomathematics Summer Institute is March
1st. To learn more, you can attend a workshop on either Thursday, February 14 from 5 - 6 pm at UHWO Lab Bldg. E109 or
Friday, February 15 from 11 - 12 pm at UHWO Lab Bldg. E132.
For further questions, please contact Dr. Linda Furuto at email@example.com.
