Ethnomathematics as a Program

The ICME 13 Topical Survey, Current and Future Perspectives of Ethnomathematics as a Program, addresses numerous themes related to both ethnomathematics and mathematics education. It offers a broader view of mathematics, including ideas, procedures, concepts, processes, methods, and practices rooted in distinct cultural environments. The current agenda for ethnomathematics is to continue an ongoing, progressive trajectory that contributes to the achievement of social justice, peace, and dignity for all. 

Early Mathematics Resources

Inside Mathematics has some early mathematics resources new to its website. Instructional tasks for grades K-2 are now posted. These instructional tasks use children's literature-such as Mouse Count, Big and Little, One Hungry Monster, and more-to draw students into the mathematical content.  Each task is aligned with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics; all the tasks are available for download by grade level.These early mathematics resources were developed by the Dana Center with support from the Noyce Foundation.
