Globalisation and Mathematics Education : From Above and Below

Atweh, Bill & Clarkson, Philip (2002) Globalisation and Mathematics Education : From Above and Below. In Australian Association for Research in Education, November 2002, University of Queensland - Brisbane.


This paper discusses some issues in globalisation in mathematics education. Using data from interviews conducted in Brazil2, we will attempt to achieve three aims. Firstly, we aim to show the complexity of the issues surrounding what has become a meta-paradigm of our late modern times, i.e. that of globalisation. Second, we aim to illustrate some of the differing conceptualisations of globalisation that have differing impacts on the discipline of mathematics education. Third, we aim to give voice to mathematics educators not often heard on the Australian scape. Mathematics eduction in Australia can be critiqued for being dominated by Anglo-European concerns and theoretical stands.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
