Growing Math provides ready-to-roll-out lessons and games that combine math, Indigenous culture and agricultural science that can be easily used in classrooms, via hybrid models or through distance learning. The project also incorporates teacher training/professional development and technical support.  Lessons are aligned to standards for grades 3 through 8.

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.

Teachers in six states – Arizona, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon and South Dakota – can receive stipends for their participation.
