Remove your European lenses that color your ideas of the social, cultural, and even political interactions of mathematics and culture. Find new ways of teaching cultural math that look nothing like Western mathematics, and see how mathematical thinking in other cultures may be hard to recognize in the Western sense. Learn the background, history, and theory of ethnomathematics and some get structures for seeking ethnomathematical examples. Then build on these structures with demonstrations and activities of mathematics from a variety of cultures from around the world. By popular request, part of this presentation is repeated from a shorter session at the 2004 ISSA Conference, but with additional background and activities. Outline Isn't mathematics culture-free?

Ethnomathematics: Why? Abstract:
Ethnomathematics is the study of mathematics, which takes into consideration the culture in which mathematics arises. We all have some notions of what ethnomathematics is, but should it be influencing school mathematics? An important change in mathematical instruction needs to take place in order to accommodate the change in the demographics of students. Teachers and supervisors need to be instructed in gearing education more toward students of different cultures. This paper describes why and how ethnomathematics should influence mathematics. It emphasizes why ethnomathematics is important in mathematics education and focuses on the way that culture plays an important role in a child's life. The term "ethnomathematics" refers to mathematical concepts embedded in cultural practices. Ethnomathematics: Why?

Ethnomathematics and aboriginal student anxiety.
Mathematics anxiety has been identified as a barrier to aboriginal learners who wish to enroll in post secondary education and training in Canada. We examined student beliefs about mathematics anxiety and their perceptions about how increased culturally-relevant mathematical content could enhance their feelings of efficacy in mathematics. We found higher levels of anxiety among aboriginal students; and identified differences between aboriginal and non-aboriginal students' views of how mathematics anxiety can be reduced.
Socio cultural Learning Theory and Mathematics Anxiety
Aboriginal students expressed a higher degree of preference for mathematics problems and projects that included indigenous perspectives. This belief was reiterated in both personal interviews and in the written surveys. Transcripts show all aboriginal students expressed considerable enthusiasm for the culturally focused projects, and in particular expressed a desire to learn more about the cultural contributions aboriginal peoples had made. Considerable pride was expressed in the tone and descriptions that these aboriginal students used in their personal interviews. Projects also required students to work collaboratively together, an alternative to the usual individual question/answer cycle, which was also identified as a source of anxiety.

Ethnomathematics - What Next?
Mathematics is the same everywhere in the world. It is a true universal language. But some folks are upset about it, because of its Western roots. So now we get Ethnomathematics! From the New York Times (free subscription required), we learn: The only possibility of building up a planetary civilization depends on restoring the dignity of the losers.'' Robert N. Proctor, who teaches the history of science at Pennsylvania State University, says he wants to counter the notion ''that the West is the be all and end all'' when it comes to mathematical studies. ''After all,'' he adds, ''all math is ethnomath not just African kinship numerics or Peruvian bead counting, but also the C.I.A.'s number-crunching cryptology and Reaganomics.''
Is he aware of the many contributions to modern mathematics by Asians? Why weren't they deterred by "western" math? The non-West are "losers?" This is very revealing about the arrogant attitude of the multiculturalists!

Ethnomathematics Rationale in Manitoba
Rationale for Home Page
Ethnic minorities are now becoming the majority of the school-age population. The American National Research Council's Everybody Counts in Alcoze (1992) reports that white males will make up 15% of the net additions to the labour force between 1985 and 2000. The other 85% will be made up of women and people of colour. Multicultural education comprises a new, global perspective on the history of mathematics, sciences, and engineering. People studying the inclusion of an ethnomathematics perspective in the regular classroom ask the question:
  • Does the context of ethnic information increase mathematical learning by increasing motivation through respect for minority contributions to mathematics?
These facts led Lesley Sisco to ask the question:
  • How do I value my students interests and also connect them to ideas and traditions growing out of centuries of mathematical exploration and invention?

I have ten little fingers and they all belong to me.
I can make them do things - just you wait and see.
I can shut them up tight, and open them wide.
I can put them together or make them all hide.
I can make them jump high; I can make them jump low.
I can fold them quietly and hold them just so.
I have ten little fingers and they all belong to me.
As I count, I point at each one of her fingers until all ten have been accounted for and then to signal completion I lean over and tickle her until she squeals in delight. here for a more detailed explanation of Mayan mathematics. Counting systems based on units of five and twenty have also been found in Papua New Guinea . Other cultural traditions have used varying methods of counting , some by twos, some by fours, up until sixty, as with the ancient Sumerians.

    Dear HM list members:
    Laura Laurencich Minelli's Italian Archive post is greatly
    appreciated. It is important to ponder the impact of the
    Inquisition, as it began in 1492 and officially ended
    in 1821. Two popular projects immediately come to mind. The
    first is Spain's most important literary work, Don Quixote,
    by Cervantes, that shows the Inquisition picture in a way
    that Cervantes reported it, yet personally escaped the dungeons.
    A more recent USA project was the movie, The Mission, staring
    Robert De Niro, playing a South American slaver, turned Jesuit. Laura' reporting of Inca history, from the Incan point of view, as written up by F. Valera is also important to consider. It explains why the quipu, first reported to modern archaeology in the 1920's was ignored as containing jibberish. Even today
