Where Would Formal, Academic Mathematics Stand in a Curriculum Informed by Ethnomathematics? A Critical Review of Ethnomathematics.
Rowlands, Stuart; Carson, Robert
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v50 n1 p79-102 2002
Classifies ethnomathematics in relation to the teaching of formal, academic mathematics. Investigates whether ethnomathematics should replace academic mathematics, be a supplement to the mathematics curriculum, be used as a springboard for academic mathematics, or be taken into consideration when preparing learning situations. Suggests that only formal, academic mathematics is sensitive to the real value of mathematics inherent in cultures and societies. (Author/KHR)
