Abstract:The School and University Partnership for Educational Renewal in Mathematics (SUPER-M) Fellowship is a GK-12 program at the University of Hawaii at Manoa which sends UH graduate students to schools throughout Hawaii. I will share some of the work that we do and present several math activities created by the program inspired by native Hawaiian culture and sports, such as he'e holua (Hawaiian lava surfing), 'ulu maika (stone disk bowling), and 'ahu 'ula (featherwork capes).
