Title Ethnomathematics and mathematical literacy: People knowing mathematics in society.
Author(s) Wedege, Tine
Date 2010
English abstract
Ethnomathematics and mathematical literacy are two central notions about knowing mathematics in the world. While ethnomathematics stresses people’s competence developed in different cultural groups in their everyday life, the idea of mathematical literacy mainly focuses on the mathematical and societal requirements to people’s competencies. Starting with a critical and constructive view on ethnomathematics and on mathematical literacy, I suggest sociomathematics as an analytical concept for a subject field (people's cognitive, affective and social relationships with mathematics in society) and a research field in mathematics education encompassing the study of the two competences.
