There is concern about citizens narrow view of the world, often lacking basic geographic knowledge such as locations of countries, and even less likely to know about cultures and societies. It is argued that much more global education needs to be included in school curricula. Whether it is one unit in one class or the overall mission of the school, it brings the world into the classroom. Often, it also takes the classroom out into the world.

    Ethnomathematics
    The ICEMs are quadrennial conferences of the International Study Group on Ethnomathematics (ISGEm). They provide an opportunity for those interested in ethnomathematics to gather to exchange ideas formally in papers, less formally in demonstrations and field trips, and socially in conference events. The first ICEM was held in 1998 in Granada, Spain, followed in 2002 by ICEM-2 (II-CIEM) in Ouro Preto, Brazil. Auckland, New Zealand hosted ICEM-3 in February 2006. Most recently, Towson, Maryland, USA, was the site of the Fourth International Conference on Ethnomathematics (ICEM-4) in 2010. Thus, the four conferences were located on four continents!

    Ron Eglash (born December 25, 1958 in Chestertown, MD ) is an American cyberneticist , university professor, and author widely known for his work in the field of ethnomathematics , which aims to study the diverse relationships between math and culture. His research includes the use of fractal patterns in African architecture art , and religion , and the relationships between indigenous cultures and modern technology, such as that between Native American cultural and spiritual practices and cybernetics . He holds a Bachelor's degree in Cybernetics, a Master's in Systems Engineering, and a Ph.D. in History of Consciousness, all from the University of California . A Fulbright fellowship enabled his postdoctoral field research on African ethnomathematics, which was later published in the book

    Key text
    The term ethnomathematics was first used in the late 1960s by a Brazilian mathematician, Ubiratan DAmbrosio, to describe the mathematical practices of identifiable cultural groups. Some see it as the study of mathematics in different cultures, others as a way of making mathematics more relevant to different cultural or ethnic groups, yet others as a way of understanding the differences between cultures. But perhaps the most powerful claim for the new discipline has been made by DAmbrosio himself (quoted in The Chronicle of Higher Education , 6 October 2000): Mathematics is absolutely integrated with Western civilization, which conquered and dominated the entire world. The only possibility of building up a planetary civilization depends on restoring the dignity of the losers and, together, winners and losers, moving into the new. [Ethnomathematics, then, is] a step towards peace. This makes ethnomathematics a rather unusual discipline, because it attempts to meld science and social justice. This isn't something that sits comfortably with many scientists: science, they argue, is science, and trying to make it politically correct will only impede its progress. Some educators fret that teaching mathematics using an ethnomathematical approach reduces it to a social-studies subject that teaches students little about real mathematics. Others simply ridicule the whole notion: according to one disparaging journalist, 'Unless you wish to balance your checkbook the ancient Navajo way, its probably safe to ignore the whole thing'.

    personal webpage: http://pages.towson.edu/shirley Abstract Explore this exciting and emerging field. 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?

    Albany: State University of New York Press Review by Janet Shapiro Introduction I taught mathematics in school for several years, and found myself combating the rather discouraging approach used in mathematics education. I wanted people to acknowledge the mathematical skills applied by necessity in many practical situations. So, I welcome this publication which confirms my own convictions, and I am very glad to have the opportunity to review it. After all, UNESCO designated the year 2000 as the International Year of Mathematics, and Maths Year 2000 is a DfEE (Department of Education and Employment) funded initiative. While academic in style, the book includes practical experience. Many of the chapters describe teachers learning from their pupils' responses, gaining insight into how cultural background and priorities of purpose can influence general problem solving strategies. Frequently the message is that the teacher must have awareness and sensitivity to appreciate the train of thought used by a pupil. There are frequent reports of otherwise illiterate people demonstrating innate mathematical ability. Structure However, the book suffers from being a collection of academic papers, each having a long list of citations, which inevitably carries a great deal of repetition. Many pages are devoted to polemical battles, in which the authors refute previous work with a Eurocentrist or elitist bias. The chapters are arranged in six sections, but section headings are not emphasised throughout the text. After reading through the chapters a second time I found that these thematic headings helped me to understand the thesis better. In my own words these themes were:

      The varieties of mathematical experience: ethnomathematics is a powerful tool for understanding other cultures
      Natural History Sept, 2003 by James V. Rauff
      Mathematics Elsewhere: An Exploration of Ideas across Cultures by Marcia Ascher Princeton University Press, 2002; $24.95 The Incan quipu is an unusual object, an assemblage of slender, knotted cords tied along a thicker, main cord. The cords are dyed a variety of colors: when it's bundled up, a quipu looks like a multicolored mop; when it's spread out, it resembles a long rope necklace or a grass skirt. The quipus of the ancient Incas of Peru encoded a wide range of data about people, land, and crops for the government bureaucracy. The code was efficient and compact: the color, number, and relative spacing of the cords, and the number and type of knots tied into each cord, all held significance. A quipu might include as many as 2,000 cords, in some fifty or sixty different colors. I won't venture to estimate the storage capacity of a quipu in bits or bytes, but the system was, in its unique way, a pre-Columbian database for the Andesan artifact of a mathematical tradition that developed entirely outside Western models. Marcia Ascher, emerita professor of mathematics at Ithaca College in New York, and her husband Robert Ascher were instrumental in deciphering the code of the quipu (their book Code of the Quipu: A Study in Media, Mathematics, and Culture was published in 1981). Since then Marcia Ascher has focused her considerable analytic skills on a whole range of similar mathematical artifacts and concepts outside mainstream Western culture. Her latest offering, Mathematics Elsewhere: An Exploration of Ideas across Cultures, is a collection of essays on mathematical concepts in use by small-scale, traditional societies: a series of reports from an explorer "in the field" Ascher both examines the nature of the mathematics put into practice by individual societies and considers how those non-Western mathematical concepts fit into and express the ethos of the cultures that gave rise to them.
