Issues of Cultural Diversity in School Mathematics
IJMEST Volume 32, Number 3, ISSN 0020-739X
Explores cultural diversity in school mathematics and the issues raised for mathematics education. Examines the curricular roots of school mathematics in relation to scholarly mathematics, and the mathematics of past generations and different social groups. Notes some of the complexities in seeking to 'culturalize' school mathematics by bringing 'everyday', 'historical', and 'community' cultures into the classroom. (Contains 24 references.) (Author/ASK)
