Mathematics and Global Perspectives: A Working Team.
Schwartz, Richard H.
Information Exchange Network Clearinghouse Memo, n18 p3-6 Nov 1980
Ways in which mathematics and global education can be combined are described. Following a discussion of the need for having a citizenry capable of analyzing global issues, methods of infusing global education into the mathematics curriculum and math into the social studies curriculum are offered. Half of the document consists of eight sample problems which combine math skills and global issues. The problems (which can be used in either math or social studies classes) address waste in affluent nations, the arms race, population, global income inequalities, and global hunger. A list of resources is included. (DC)
