While 'anti-racist mathematics' and 'ethnomathematics' scholars share the assumption that any given mathematical understanding or practice is a product of a particular culture, the forms of their scholarship differ considerably, and they should not be confused with one another

Lmao wtf? Math along with hard sciences are like one of the few disciplines that is mutually exclusive to culture as you simply just need to understand the theories and proofs. The only barrier is language.

Opinions?

    I'm cool with alot of street niggas here too cause, I come off as just being me and when I see them I holla and keep it moving. That's what's wrong with everybody now, they make being a gangsta or thug as the benchmark of being real. U know what's real, a nigga working a 9 to 5, busting his ass everyday without having to break a law."

    Asians are not inherently smarter than anybody. They just sacrifice their entire lives for academics.

    One thing, do you guys ever research the writers of these books?

    Done by a well respected black man, who is an inspiration to the black youth.

    So how is it "racist"? I was told, here on the IC, it's impossible for blacks to be racist.

    The bolded doesn't mean he can't be a dumbass.

    And the belief that Blacks can't be racist is a racist belief.

    Anti-racist mathematics education is primarily concerned with the way in which mathematics is taught, although it also examines the contents of the curriculum in as much as this might reasonably differ from universally acceptable mathematical education.[citation needed] An anti-racist approach to mathematics education could include any or all of the following:
    Discussion of the mathematical knowledge of ancient civilizations outside of Europe, and non-European contributions to mathematical knowledge and discovery.

    The avoidance of racial stereotyping when forming and communicating expectations of pupils' attainments in mathematics.

    The avoidance of racial stereotypes or cultural bias in classroom materials, textbooks, coursework topics and examination questions. For example, common non-European names, such as C'haim (Jewish), could be used in story problems, rather than common European names, like Mary or Emily.

    Effective and unprejudiced methods of distinguishing between the merits of individuals.

    Support of notion that mathematics is a subjective discipline (i.e., answers to mathematical problems are open to interpretation based on what ethnic branch of mathematics is used).[citation needed]

    the article is talking about how math is communicated by teachers and text books not the material itself....slow ass people

    Math started in egypt.

    Africans invented math, science, astrology, philosophy, hell mufuckin civilization. Who do you think the Greeks learned it from? Come on black people wake the fuck up. Every black and brown child should no that shit. You had a vast, rich history before slavery. Go look up some shit.

    I'll give you a freebie:

    The Native Americans taught the Europeans how to bathe.
