Abstract

There are unacknowledged difficulties within the literature of culture and mathematics, specifically in the use of the term ethnomathematics. As a step towards a more coherent approach, a framework to review the literature is proposed, and three authors examined. From this analysis, a definition of ethnomathematics is derived and elaborated. Two examples are reviewed as a test of the power of the definition and the resultant description of ethnomathematics.
