As an undergraduate math major, Eng found a new perspective. During an independent study, a professor gave her a list of math fiction and nonfiction books to read, such as “Zero: A Biography of a Dangerous Idea” by Charles Seife. Through such books, Eng began to view math as “diverse, evolving, quirky and sometimes even chilling.”. Reviews the history of mathematics. Parallels mathematics to science. Addresses the ideology behind mathematics, along with the social and cultural reasons (aristocracy) for creating certain math programs. links mathematics with anthropology. discusses how ethnomath "disappears" and is replaced/evolves as the culture changes, so does the math Reviews: 1.

- Culture and/or Freedom Culture is a way of life practiced.

Your Understanding stems from your Knowledge (1+3=4). (4)(Culture/Freedom) 5. - Power and/or Refinement Power is force or creative energy. Mathematics teaching and learning is about the beauty of patterns and the power of solutions to solve meaningful problems. Focus and plan I know there are many other teachers just like me who struggle with teaching math because they lack the confidence in their own mathematical abilities.
