Association of Teachers of Mathematics
A brief narrative description of the journal article, document, or resource. Examines three strands of elementary mathematics--numerals and counting, recording and calculating, and mathematics exploration and play--and provides ways to integrate culture and mathematics experiences in each area. Specific topics include Egyptian methods for multiplication, the abacus, and the words for the numbers 1-10 in seven different languages. [Abstract taken from ERIC]
