The Ideology of Certainty in Mathematics Education.
Borba, Marcelo C.; Skovsmose, Ole
For the Learning of Mathematics, v17 n3 p17-23 Nov 1997
Presents one aspect that makes mathematics the final word in many discussions, the ideology of certainty. Argues that one way of challenging the ideology of certainty is to change classroom practice by introducing a landscape of discussion on chaotic nature where relativity, provisional starting points, different points of view, and uncertainty are valued.
