When Math Worlds Collide: Intention and Invention in Ethnomathematics.
Eglash, Ron
Science, Technology, and Human Values, v22 n1 p79-97 Win 1997
Defines ethnomathematics as the investigation of mathematical knowledge in small-scale, indigenous cultures. Puts ethnomathematics as one of five distinctive subfields within a general anthropology of mathematics, and describes interactions between cultural and epistemological features that have created these divisions. Reviews political and pedagogical issues, and examines possibilities for both conflict and collaboration between goals, theories, and methods of social constructivism. (Author/CCM)
