Teaching Mathematic Concepts Using a Multicultural Approach

Today’s student population continues to change rapidly and steadily reflects the myriad of cultures it represents. Culture, in this particular instance, includes but not limited to ethnicity, socio-economic status, language, geographic origin, learning manner and abilities, gender, etc. Given this situation, it is sensible to reexamine our teaching approaches and to ponder the role of multicultural approach in the teaching and learning of our students, particularly in the subject of mathematics.
