Math Across Cultures
The first booklet in the new "Exploratorium Teacher Activity" series is designed to help teachers increase awareness of multicultural issues for middle- and secondary- school students while making science and math more relevant and approachable to children of color. The discovery-based learning activities feature an eclectic mix of methods and materials from various cultures. Guided by their researchers, students decipher the mathematical language of quipu rope knots from the Inca civilization; learn about mathematical proofs by playing the compelling game of Madagascar solitaire; translate Egyptian and Mayan astronomical hieroglyphics; and practice problem solving by weaving baskets.

Math Across Cultures


Softcover, two color, 48 pages, $10.00. The Exploratorium, 1996. ISBN: 0-943451-41-8.
