Who are we? We are the Navajo Nation Math Circles (NNMC) for students and teachers of the Navajo Nation. Our goal is to share fun and rewarding mathematics with everyone. We partner with over 40 mathematicians across the United States to develop amazing mathematics and amazing mathematicians.
The NNMC is many many people. We are a community of students, teachers, facilitators, professors, consultants… The NNMC is co-directed by:
• Dr. David Auckly, Mathematics, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS.
• Dr. Henry Fowler, Mathematics, Navajo Technical University, Crownpoint, NM.
Who are you? We want “I do mathematics” to be a part of everyone’s answer to “Who are you?” That’s why the NNMC is different from any other Math Circle we know of–we honor the language, culture, and history of the Diné as part of the important work we do. We want to hear our participant’s pride in saying, “I am Diné and I love mathematics.” Both together is truly baa hózhó mathematics.
