Confluence

Tod Shockey

Resumen


Abstract:

This position paper argues that ethnomathematics, while not a curriculum (nor a discipline, that is why D’Ambrosio call it a program), is a confluence of ideas and concepts that may lead to different mathematics engagement of our students. Just as water swirls together from multiple sources, so does our cognition when many ideas are brought together, leading to a cognitive confluence. e definition of ethnomathematics, as coined by D’Ambrosio in 1985 sets the foundation. Scholarship from other disciplines is included, as these areas motivate new thinking, new questions, and new perspectives. 

Resumo

Este documento argumentativo discute que a etnomatemática, embora não seja um currículo (nem uma disciplina, é por isso que D'Ambrosio a denomina comoum programa), é uma confluência de ideias e conceitos que podem direcionar ao envolvimento matemático diferenciado de nossos alunos. Assim, da mesma maneira que a água forma redemoinhos a partir de fontes múltiplas, a nossa cognição também se desenvolve quando muitas ideias são reunidas e conduzidasa uma confluência cognitiva. A definição de etnomatemática, tal como foicunhada por D'Ambrosio, em 1985, estabeleceu as sua bases. O saber de outras disciplinas também é incluída, pois essas áreas motivam novos pensamentos, novas questões e novas perspectivas
