ab: Summary: This paper addresses the contested way that ethnomathematics has
sometimes been received by mathematicians and others and what that
disagreement might suggest about issues in mathematics education;
namely, (a) the relation of ethnomathematics to academic mathematics;
(b) recent efforts to reform secondary school mathematics so that it
prepares students better for entering the workplace; and (c) claims
that mathematics and mathematics education are coming to share
increasingly less common ground.
