Ban Algebra Courses at University of Ottawa

This petition had 88 supporters

The Student Federation of Ottawa has recently cancelled a free Yoga class over issues of cultural appropriation.

While this is a sign of progress, we must build off the momentum. Former New York Daily News columnist Bill Hammond has suggested that we go further by cancelling university algebra courses, as this branch of mathematics has its cultural roots in ancient Babylonia. 

The University of Ottawa is a logical selection for this petition, since they have proven capable of leading the way. Please sign the petition to have Dean of Instruction, Joyce Caldwell, remove any courses related to algebra.
