Ethnomathematics and Multiculturalism


Shree Prasad Devkota

Nepal


Abstract

Teaching culturally contextually mathematics means making a connection to everyday life and understanding that if we master it (math), its application is easier, more meaningful, and more enjoyable, and gives us the answers to questions like “why?”, “what for?" and “how?”

Keywords: mathematics, ethnomathematics, multiculturalism, cultural pedagogy.
