Educators of Native American Students (EONAS)

EONAS has been featured in at least one session at each NCTM Annual Meeting since 2005 and hosts separate meetings to discuss issues of importance to those in American Indian education.  Those issues include the underrepresentation of American Indians in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields, and underperformance of American Indian students on mathematics and science assessments.  Because of the importance of including cultural based lessons in the curriculum for Native American Students, we encourage a visit to the site for the North American Study Group on Ethnomathematics (NASGEm) to view the newsletters and journals.
