Ethnomodeling: A Pedagogical Action for Uncovering Ethnomathematical Practices
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, a process of translation and elaboration of problems and the questions taken from academic systems. Seen in this context, 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.
