The History of Mathematics and Ethnomathematics. How a Native Culture Intervenes in the Process of Learning Science.
D'Ambrosio, Ubiratan
Impact of Science on Society, v40 n4 p369-78 1990
Ethnomathematics is a program that looks into the generation, transmission, institutionalization, and diffusion of knowledge with emphasis on the sociocultural environment. By drawing on the cultural experiences and practices of individuals and of communities, ethnomathematics allows for an easier flow of scientific ideas with children, reducing the effects of cultural blocks.
