Ethnomodeling: The Pedagogical Action of Ethnomathematics as a Program

Última alteração: 2011-06-10

#### Resumo

The application of ethnomathematical techniques and tools of modeling

allow us to examine systems taken from reality and give us insight

into forms of mathematics done in a holistic way. The pedagogical

approach that connects a diversity of cultural forms of mathematics is

best represented through ethnomodeling, which is a process of

translation and elaboration of problems and the questions taken from

real world contexts. Seen in this way, we would like to broaden the

discussion of possibilities for the inclusion of ethnomathematics and

associated ethnomodeling perspectives that respect the social

diversity of distinct cultural groups with guarantees for the

development of understanding different ways of doing mathematics

through dialogue and respect
