Growing Math is a free, new platform to provide educators the tools and training they need to best serve students in tribal areas, rural communities and urban cities with Indigenous populations.
Is your school struggling with any of the following?
- Math achievement;
- Engagement (i.e. students actually completing their work);
- Teachers’ time demands;
- Thinking there needs to be more culturally reflective curriculum
Thanks to a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Growing Math is available at NO COST to schools or programs serving Indigenous students within the U.S.
We are looking for teachers and schools to participate in the Growing Math project, which will provide classroom-ready lessons and games that combine math, Indigenous culture and agricultural science. These standards-aligned lesson plans can be easily used for in-person instruction, in a hybrid model or for distance learning. The project also includes teacher training/professional development and technical support.
Growing Math is available for Grades 3-8. Teachers can sign up for live training sessions or asynchronous (self-paced) training by clicking on the appropriate “Live Training” or “Asynchronous (Self-Paced) Training” box on our homepage or the links below. Growing Math is currently accepting sign ups from teachers and schools.
There is no cost to participate as the project is fully funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and developed by 7 Generation Games. The project includes the opportunity for pilot participants to receive a teacher stipend for their time. Also, the project includes the opportunity for pilot participants to receive a teacher stipend for their time if teaching in these six funded states: Arizona, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota.

Growing Math is funded by a $1 million COVID-19 Rapid Response grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to create solutions to the challenges arising in education during the global pandemic.
