67. Common Sense Or Good Sense
In this paper I want to focus on Gramsci s concepts and their relevance to current debates around ethnomathematics, but first, a brief review of recent
Common Sense or Good Sense? Ethnomathematics and the Prospects for a Gramscian Politics of Adults' Mathematics Education Diana Coben Goldsmiths College, University of London Abstract This paper looks at Antonio Gramsci's concepts of 'common sense' and 'good sense' in the light of recent research and practice in adults learning mathematics, focussing particularly on issues around ethnomathematics, and explores the prospects for a Gramscian politics of adults’ mathematics education. Introduction Mathematical knowledge is socially powerful: it enjoys high prestige and being 'mathematically knowledgeable' is often treated as an indicator of general intelligence, as evidenced by the widespread use of mathematics in entry tests for employment and employment training; mathematics is precise, rigorous, a powerful discipline in its own right. Common sense, by contrast, is regarded - or rather, it is often disregarded - as a low-level, practical, 'everyday' phenomenon, hardly noticed, except when its absence is suddenly revealed in the actions of an otherwise apparently intelligent, capable adult. What then is the connection between mathematics and common sense and where does Gramsci come into the picture? For me, the connection between mathematics and common sense has long been a source of interest. As an adult numeracy tutor in the 1970s and 1980s I was aware that there seemed to be a strong connection in students' minds between those elements of mathematics they felt comfortable with and what they called common sense and my later research, with Gillian Thumpston, on adults' mathematics life histories, bore this out (Coben and Thumpston 1995, 1996). We found that some adults consistently undervalue the mathematics they can do, dismissing it as 'just common sense', while regarding as mathematics only that which they cannot do. Mathematics was thus effectively rendered invisible, a phenomenon also noted by Mary Harris (1997).

Critique of Ethnomathematics
What I am reading now is Vithal's and Skovsmose's Critique of Ethnomathematics. They begin by saying that "we conceive of ethnomathemaitcs and critical mathematics education as two important educational positions in the attempt to develop an 'alternative' mathematics education which expresses social awareness and political responsibility". They consider their critique theoretically as well as in the contaxt of South African education system. They first explore the position of mathematics as a lesson in a modernised society and how "ethnomathematics can be interpreted as a reaction to the cultural imperialism which is built into modernisation theory". They heavily concentrate upon how "mathematics education can be improved by paying special attention to the ethnomathematics in the culture with which the children (students) are familiar. They appear to think of the following statement as the basic thesis of ethnomathematics: "mathematics education can be improved by considering the cultural background of the students". What I belive is that ethnomathematics (and critical mathematics education as well) are about much more than just one's own culture. I feel that thry provide the tools to meet other cultures and - perhaps more importantly - to meet and understand maths through these cultures. Cultures from the past, current cultures, or 'cultures' of specific groups that use math in a given way (formal, researchers, statisticians, parmacists, farmers and so on).
