On Possible Uses of Traditional Angolan Sand Drawings in the Mathematics Classroom.
Gerdes, Paulus
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v19 n1 p3-22 Feb 1988
Both industrialized and Third World countries see the need to "multi-culturalize" their mathematics curricula. Following a brief description of the drawing tradition of the Tchokwe people (Angola), some possible uses of their pictograms in the mathematics classroom are suggested. Examples given in this paper include the study of arithmetical relationships, progressions, symmetry, similarity, and Euler graphs. (Author/PK)
