Recognising Torres Strait Islander women’s knowledges in their children’s mathematics education
Ewing, Bronwyn F. (2009) Recognising Torres Strait Islander women’s knowledges in their children’s mathematics education. In Ludwig, Paditz & Rogerson, Alan (Eds.) Proceedings of the 10th International Conference Models in Developing Mathematics Education”, Project in the 21st Century, University of Applied Sciences, Dresden.
This paper discusses women’s involvement in their children’s mathematics education. It does, where possible, focus Torres Strait Islander women who share the aspirations of Aborginal communities around Australia. That is, they are keen for their children to receive an education that provides them with opportunities for their present and future lives. They are also keen to have their cultures’ child learning practices recognised and respected within mainstream education. This recognition has some way to go with the language of instruction in schools written to English conventions, decontextualised and disconnected to the students’ culture, Community and home language.
