Over the past two or three decades, various political, cultural, and educational forces have brought ethnomathematics and multiculturalism in general into widespread use. Thus, it is important to include ethnomathematical studies in teaching methodology and especially teacher education programs.
In den letzten 20–30 Jahren haben verschiedene Kräfte aus Politik, Kultur sowie Bildung und Eiziehung für eine weitverbreitete Nutzung ethnomathematischer und multikultureller Ideen gesorgt. Es ist von daher wichtig, Ethnomathematik in den Unterricht und insbesondere in Lehrebildungsprogramme zu integrieren.
