- The Alderville First Nation project is part of a SSHRC-funded project (2008-2011) on Students as Performance Mathematicians by George Gadanidis (UWO), Marcelo Borba (UNESP, Brazil), Susan Gerofsky (UBC), Cornelia Hoogland (UWO), and Janette Hughes (UOIT).
- We have been working at the Alderville First Nation Learning Centre with middle school students. The students have been developing digital stories of (1) of their community and (2) of mathematics. Using these stories as a basis, the students worked with aboriginal performance artists Tracy Bone, JC Campbell and Dave Mowat, to develop live performances to be shared with their community.
