Ethnic Maths project

Discussion in 'Mathematics' started by trapezium, Sep 3, 2011.

  1. Hi

    As a whole school we are having to complete ethnic projects. I am looking to complete an Ethnic maths project with year 8. Does anybody have any ideas on possible projects or has anyone run such a project or have any resources?
    Any help would be very greatly appreciated!
    Thank you

    I imagine that ethnic is being used unconsciously as a euphemism for Oriental and African. Strictly, we all have ethnicity so you could go with some nice British mathematics. You could compromise and look at the work of Freudenthal, Erd<font size="2" face="Times New Roman">?</font><font size="2">s, Fraenkel or</font> Einstein, to name a few notables, who were ethnic Jews.

    There is a wide variety of board and strategy games from around the world. Go-Moku, the Mancala range and Nim variants should get you started.
