FNUniv’s Annual Wiseman Mathematics Contest Comes Full Circle
The Wiseman Mathematics Contest, North America’s first math competition for Indigenous students, has journeyed full circle to the Kahkewistahaw First Nation where it was originally launched by First Nations University of Canada (FNUniv) in 2008.
FNUniv is thrilled to present the Grade 5 class at Chief Kahkewistahaw Community School with one of four Elder Ken Goodwill Memorial Awards, given to the schools whose students have achieved the highest scores; they share this special distinction with three other classes in two Ontario schools. The school is also celebrating six individual students who earned the top three scores for each of the three grades.
“It’s very exciting to celebrate this accomplishment with the Kahkewistahaw First Nation community since it’s where the contest got its start,” said Dr. Bob Kayseas, FNUniv Associate Vice-President, Academic. “It’s certainly rewarding for all of us at FNUniv, and especially for Dr. Arzu Sardarli, who developed the contest and continues to oversee and champion this initiative.”
