  This text provides a critical overview of current thinking about equity issues in the teaching and learning of mathematics. Grounded in feminist theories of curriculum change and a broad range of cultural perspectives, the new approaches described here go beyond "special programmes" and "experimental treatments" designed to correct perceived problems and deficits. By Gizem Karaali, Published on 01/01/ Recommended Citation. Karaali, Gizem. Rev. of Mathematics and Culture V, ed. Michele Emmer.

Egyptian mathematics refers to mathematics written in the Egyptian the Hellenistic period, Greek replaced Egyptian as the written language of Egyptian scholars. Mathematical study in Egypt later continued under the Arab Empire as part of Islamic mathematics, when Arabic became the written language of Egyptian scholars.. The most extensive Egyptian mathematical text is the Rhind. As an undergraduate math major, Eng found a new perspective. During an independent study, a professor gave her a list of math fiction and nonfiction books to read, such as “Zero: A Biography of a Dangerous Idea” by Charles Seife. Through such books, Eng began to view math as “diverse, evolving, quirky and sometimes even chilling.”.

Mathematics has been very topical over the last few years. Theatre, cinema and books have all talked about mathematicians and mathematics. This book stresses the strong links between mathematics and culture, as mathematics links theatre, literature, architecture, art, cinema, medicine but also dance, cartoon and music.

This volume of the "Mathematics and Culture" series is dedicated to Italian Mathematics and culture. book Armando Pizzicato. The work of Pollock is also discussed, thanks to the collaboration of the Venice Guggenheim Collection. Mathematics creates beauty in architecture, from topology to the projects of Gehry and Piano to the muqarnas of Islam.

Imagine mathematics, imagine with the help of mathematics, imagine new worlds, new geometries, new forms. This book is intended to contribute to grasping how much that is interesting and new is happening in the relationships between mathematics, imagination and culture. This volume, published only in English in the series "Mathematics and Culture", stresses the strong links between mathematics, culture and creativity in architecture, contemporary art, geometry, computer graphics, literature, theatre and cinema.

Creativity plays an important role in all human activities, from the visual arts to cinema and theatre, and in particular in science and mathematics.

This volume in the series “Imagine Math” casts light on what is new and interesting in the relationships between mathematics, imagination and culture.

The book opens by examining the connections between modern and contemporary art and mathematics, including Linda D. Henderson’s contribution. Mathematics and culture When Doris Lawson suggested that I create an interdisciplinary mathematics and social studies oral story about ancient Egypt for her sixth graders because ancient Egypt was part of her social studies curriculum, I started to read about ancient Egyptian mathematics.

“The books contain diverse contributions that reflect the presentations at a recurrent conference that wants to bring together scientists, mathematicians, and artists from different disciplines to discuss the influence of mathematics in our culture in the broadest possible sense.” (Adhemar Bultheel, European Mathematical Society, euro-math.

The book will appeal to anthropologists, for its novel theory of the relation of cognition to culture and context; to cognitive scientists and educational theorists; and to the 'plain folks' who form its subject, and who will recognize themselves in it, a rare accomplishment in the modern social sciences.4/5(2).

A unique book in every respect, Sacred Mathematics demonstrates how mathematical thinking can vary by culture yet transcend cultural and geographic boundaries. Whereas aspects of the culture of mathematics have, historically, been defined as integral to mathematics and are seen as part of what students are expected to acquire in the process of becoming mathematicians, the mathematical culture is a product of stereotypes and biases that control who can enter the discipline and how they do so.

Mathematics and Art: A cultural history is a masterpiece of integration of mathematical knowledge with their artistic implications and vice versa. Filled with good figures and in-depth information, this book is a must for those who love mathematics and enjoyed the s: Popular culture is mainstream, trendy and appeals to the masses, whereas mathematics can be perceived as difficult, highbrow and only accessible to the academically gifted.

However, mathematics has enjoyed something of a pop culture renaissance over the last 20 years and is now a central theme of many successful films, TV shows, plays and books. Mathematics as a Cultural System discusses the relationship between mathematics and culture.

The book is comprised of eight chapters discussing topics that support the concept of mathematics as a cultural. Countless math books are published each year, however only a tiny percentage of these titles are destined to become the kind of classics that are loved the world over by students and mathematicians.

This book will enrich the reader's understanding of mathematics and the arts throughout history, and their deep interconnections in today's global culture of high technology and contemporary art."—Tatsuo Miyajima, artist.

In mathematics education, ethnomathematics is the study of the relationship between mathematics and culture. Often associated with "cultures without written expression", it may also be defined as "the mathematics which is practised among identifiable cultural groups".

It refers to a broad cluster of ideas ranging from distinct numerical and mathematical systems to multicultural mathematics.The book offers a diversity of ethnomathematics perspectives that develop both theoretical and practical issues from various disciplines including mathematics, mathematics education, history, Reviews: 1.
