Askî’s Pond is an iPad math game for Grade 1 students, featuring the characters from Askî’s world. The game reinforces Saskatchewan curriculum math outcomes and processes and is available in the iTunes app store (free of charge) for all school divisions and First Nations Education Organizations. Search for “Aski’s Pond” or “Aski.”
Askî’s Pond supports math improvement and connects directly to the reading, writing and math and the First Nations, Métis and Inuit engagement outcomes. The game integrates mathematics and First Nations and Métis content, supports math instruction in the classroom and, like Help Me Tell My Story, is a wonderful family engagement tool.
The game can be played in either English or French.

Numeracy First - Nations Métis Inuit Student Education Resources - Alberta Educators
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating

Numeracy is having the confidence and habits of mind to use mathematics to meet the general demands of everyday life. Being a numerate person means using mathematics to make sense of something new and know what mathematics can and cannot do.

Numeracy provides First Nations, Métis and Inuit students the opportunity to discover connections on their own and apply strategies to solve real life problems. Throughout history, First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples have used real life traditional learning contexts to connect to their world.

In the Empowering the Spirit video series, students explore numeracy through Traditional Games, an elementary math class on probability and a high school physics class examining the structure of a tee pee and rocket nozzle.
