Abstract: The author, an indigenous mathematics educator, offers suggestions regarding ways of improving mathematics achievement. One is by actively situating one’s knowledge of a piece of mathematics within a network of conceptual interconnections that can ultimately expand to reflect the conceptual structure of mathematics within a unit. Another way is by persistently looking for multiple ways of representing given information to gain a more holistic and complete picture of the situation.
