    Why teach about algebra in the context of Tukutuku?
    The topic has relevance as a cross-curricular unit for mathematics, art and design technology.
    "In order to make mathematics more meaningful and accessible for all learners, mathematics curricula frequently advocates the use of contexts. In this sense ‘context’ refers to real or imaginary setting for a mathematical problem, which illustrates the way the mathematics is used." (Anthony & Walshaw, 2007, p114)
    IB International Mindedness
    Education for international-mindedness relies on the development of learning environments that value the world as the broadest context for learning. IB World Schools share educational standards and practices for philosophy, organization and curriculum that can create and sustain authentic global learning communities. In school, students learn about the world from the curriculum and from their interactions with other people. Teaching and learning in global contexts supports the IB’s mission “to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect”.

    Tukutuku are the woven panels that adorn meeting houses and are placed between poupou, the carvings on the walls. Their purpose is to tell the stories of life, which in turn will compliment the poupou (wall carving) that are on each side.
