How much appears on standard tests? And what kind of training best supports the development of your natural mathematical skills? How is theintegration of mathematics and culture faring today?The six stories of this book-in addition to being examples ofcultural ecologies, mathematical mentalities, and bolts from theblue-exhibit the integration of math and cultural history, thebasis of a new way of teaching math in school.
