A Stone or a Sculpture? It Is All in Your Perception
Naresh, Nirmala
International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, v13 n6 p1567-1588 Dec 2015
Workplace mathematics, a subgroup of research on everyday mathematics and ethnomathematics documents the mathematical activities of both adults and children outside school settings. In this paper, I document the mental mathematical activities of a group of bus conductors in Chennai, India. I draw into the research areas of mental computation and everyday mathematics to report on bus conductors' use of mental mathematics at work and highlight the role of context and context related parameters in their mental mathematical activities.
