Greene, Elizabeth
Chronicle of Higher Education, v47 n6 pA16-18 Oct 6, 2000
Discusses the growing interest in "ethnomathematics," an effort to embrace non-European methods of math in college courses, especially in teacher education courses. Proponents claim they are teaching the same concepts as in traditional math but adding new culturally sensitive reasoning skills. Critics suggest dangers in teaching "politically correct" mathematics. (DB)
