Critical Challenges in Researching Cultural Issues in Mathematics Learning.
Bishop, Alan J.
This paper focuses on the cultural aspects of research in mathematics learning. The shift to a more socio-cultural emphasis in mathematics education research is valid. The paper explores this point by examining challenges to the former research paradigm. These challenges include culturally-based mathematical knowledge and hidden values in teaching.
