Multicultural Perspectives
in Mathematics Education


Purpose

This Web Site is maintained by the Department of Mathematics Education as a tool for furthering our understanding of multicultural perspectives in mathematics education. It is intended as both a forum and a resource for mathematics educators, in our department and elsewhere, who are interested in teaching mathematics reflecting contributions of many cultures and in teaching students who bring cultural diverse backgrounds to mathematics learning.
