Title Mathematics education giving meaning to Social Science students : A case from Sweden
Author(s) Andersson, Annica ; Valero, Paola
Date 2009
English abstract
Compulsory mathematics for social science students is problematic. We discuss the case of a group of students in Sweden who met a mathematics course inspired on the ideas of critical mathematics education and ethnomathematics. The evidence collected about students’ experiences on this course indicate that opening a space for agency and linking mathematics to their foregrounds can be the basis for a more meaningful mathematical experience. Such as experience has the potential of contributing to the process of students’ subjectification.
