    Understanding Mathematics and Culture in Rural Contexts. ERIC Digest. Scholarship and writing about culture and mathematics covers a wide range of topics: the cultural bases for mathematics, mathematics development in different cultures, the historical culture of mathematics, effects of culture on how people learn about and are disposed toward mathematics, and the political effects on. Popular culture is mainstream, trendy and appeals to the masses, whereas mathematics can be perceived as difficult, highbrow and only accessible to the academically gifted. However, mathematics has enjoyed something of a pop culture renaissance over the last 20 years and is now a central theme of many successful films, TV shows, plays and books.

    UNESCO's main activities in mathematics education puts emphasis on raising public awareness and interest, especially that of young people, in mathematical concepts and applications in daily life; on attracting youth into mathematics-related studies and careers; and showing that current curricula can be improved by insertion of hands-on mathematics experiments which develop scientific thinking.   In mathematics, our tacit prohibition on discussing the emotional aspects of mathematics has serious consequences for our community, ranging from mental health issues, especially among graduate students, to people unnecessarily working in isolation (e.g. Dusa McDuff’s reflections here), to differences in the sense of belonging and efficacy.

    In mathematics the notion of cultural-ly responsive teaching has been conceptu-alized as ethnomathematics (D’Ambrosio, ), which is defined as the study of mathematics that considers and integrates the culture in which mathematics arises or how different cultures “go about the tasks of classifying, ordering, counting, measur-File Size: KB. Building on the use of culture in mathematics, educators have (1) shared the mathematics developed in various cultures (e.g., ethnomathematics); and (2) developed students’ mathematical understanding by using their cultural and social referents to center their experiences in .

Editors: Leung, Frederick Koon-Shing, Graf, Klaus-D., Lopez-Real, Francis J. (Eds.) Free Preview. Mathematics is in the unenviable position of being simultaneously one of the most important school subjects for today's children to study and one of the least well understood.

Its reputation is awe-inspiring. Everybody knows how important it is and everybody knows that they have to study it. But few people feel comfortable with it; so much so that it is socially quite acceptable in many 5/5(1).

Mathematics has been very topical over the last few years. Theatre, cinema and books have all talked about mathematicians and mathematics. This book stresses the strong links between mathematics and culture, as mathematics links theatre, literature, architecture, art, cinema, medicine but also dance, cartoon and music.

In a recent study of the epistemologies of practising research mathematicians and how these related to and affected their disciplinary practices, I identified differences between the culture of mathematics, those aspects of mathematics which are recognizably discipline-related (such as the particular attitudes towards beauty, rigour, succinctness, etc.) and the mathematical culture, the socio Cited by: 2.

The subject is dealt with in three parts: culture of the mathematics classroom, communication in mathematics classrooms and pupils' and teachers' perceptions. Students on postgraduate courses in mathematics education will find this book a valuable resource.

Mathematics in a cultural context Taylor has focused his work on how mathematics learning, specifically, is shaped by the shared understandings of one’s culture. In part, he explores the different paths that students take to comprehend mathematics and how well they express that knowledge in.

This text provides a critical overview of current thinking about equity issues in the teaching and learning of mathematics. Grounded in feminist theories of curriculum change and a broad range of cultural perspectives, the new approaches described here go beyond "special programmes" and "experimental treatments" designed to correct perceived problems and by: In mathematics education, ethnomathematics is the study of the relationship between mathematics and culture.

Often associated with "cultures without written expression", it may also be defined as "the mathematics which is practised among identifiable cultural groups".

The book is an excellent reference for elementary, middle school, developmental, math for teachers, or liberal arts mathematics instructors. The author begins with an overview of the ideas and research supporting a move into multicultural mathematics education and some general ideas of how to incorporate a multicultural perspective.As is always the case, the most productive way for students to learn is by doing problems, and the book is written to get to the exercises as quickly as possible.

The presentation is geared towards students who enjoy learning mathematics for its own sake.mathematics: same as above, but perhaps not as recently.
