The International Study group on Ethnomathematics ISGEm, has emphasized the influences of sociocultural factors on the teaching and learning of mathematics.

Ethnomathematics lies at the confluence of mathematics and cultural anthropology. Ethnomathematics suggest a broad concepctualization of mathematics and etno-. At one level, it is what might be called math in the environment or math in the community. At another related level Ethnomathematics is the particular and peculiar way that specific cultural groups go about the tasks of classifying, ordering, counting and measuring. Etno- encompasses identifiable cultural groups, such as national-tribal societies, labor groups, children of a certain age bracket, professional classes, and so on and includes their jargon, codes, symbols,myths and even specifics ways of reasoning and inferring(D´Ambrosio 1985).

Athough Etnomatematics has only recently received attention from mathematics educators. However recent research is revealing that much of the mathematics used in daily practice, as affected by distinctive modes of cognition, may be quite different from that which is taught in school, and there is mounting evidence that schools in general do not take advantage of their students´intuitive mathematical and scientific grasp of the world. This was the starting point of the ISGEm in 1985.

Actually, there are aproximately 200 people working in these themes that constitute a field of research.

There are a newsletter to serve as a vehicle for comunication of thoughts and projects on Etnomathematics, edited by Rick Scott (College of Education, New Mexico State University,USA). The following individuals print and distribute the ISGEm Newsletter in their region:

was chosen in 1996, at a Meeting of the group during the ICME-8 of Sevilla (España).

In this Group we consider Ethnomathematics people all those uho share an ample vision of Mathematics. In the present multicultural and global world, contextualized mathematics is a cultural product of undeniable power for solving problematic situations and also in conceiving the world.

This is to be our focus in gathering people interested in Math. Education for the development of dignity and equality for all, and for peace.

If you are in accordance with these values, come to the ICEM-1.


The beautiful city of Granada (Spain) will be the site of The First International Conference on Etnomathematics, September 2-5,1998.


It was from Granada that the discovers of the New World set out, taking with them European Culture to blend with that of the Americas. But before that Granada has been Iberian, then Roman and after that Jewish and Islamic. As capital of the old Nasrid kingdom it was, in 1492, the last city in the Iberian peninsulato be seized from the followers of Islam, giving rise to the outline of Spain as it is known today. The Christian conquest did nothing however to strip Granada to its splendour as a renownded centre of culture, where both the sciences and the arts could find a fertile climate in which to flourish.

The University of Granada that we know today was founded in 1431 by Charles V. So the University of Granada continued the traditions of the Arab University founded by Yusuf I in the XIV century (La Madraza). During the last 465 years the University of Granada has been witness to many important events, whilst at the same time growing in influence within the social and cultural environment of its host city. At this moment stands out as Granada’s most firmly established and commited institution.

Granada University has had the cope with the fastest growth in its entire history, but thanks to its long- established traditions, its self-governing status, the economic help offered by public administration institutions and the work of the 70,000 people directly associated with the smooth running and welfare of the university, including lecturers, administrative staff and the students themselves.

The University of Granada reafirmed the city position as a centre of learning open to many cultures, peoples and beliefs, by being the only European university with annexes on the African continent, in Ceuta and Melilla, which are international commercial ports and thus open to the mixing of cultures, where Spaniards live side by side with Muslim, Jews, Hindus and many other races and religions.

Granada has an abundant university population, the third in importance in Spain. Fifty-seven thousand of a total of sixty thousand students are full-time and account for one in five of the city’s 270,000 population. The youth of its population gives the city a populous and dynamic character as well as the identity of a university town.

If we take into account all that we have said up to now about the city of Granada, it should not sound surprising that Granada, for many years, has been one of the primary centres in Spain, both in number and in relevance, for the celebration of Congresses. It possess an ideal infrastructure for the execution of these activities, and at the same time it offers a wide range of services of all kinds, covering any conceivable need. Numerous specialized halls and practically all the large Granada hotels accomodate every year a large number of scientific, cultural, and business events and conferences.

The recent inauguration of the brand new Conference Centre adds new dynamism and eminence to the already superior quality of resources Granada extends to the Congresses and Expositions Organization. This building, already emblematic, has been equiped with the most advanced communication and audiovisual equipment in order to favour closer contacts between different cultures and peoples.


In Southeastern Spain, in Andalusia’s oriental sector, the province of Granada spreads out over a surface area of 12,500 Km sq. The splendid contrasts between its vega (plains), flat and forever green, and Sierra Nevada’s abrupt mountains, have not yet failed to produce admiration in the spectator, whoever she/he may be. The astonishment is completed with its 102 Km of tropical coast. Granada is, in this and in many other ways, a privileged land indeed.

Granada with its 15 Centigrade degrees annual temperature, goes up at 680m. above sea level. It offers excellent national and international transport services by air, railway and highway. Thanks to a modern airport and to the recently built net of bypasses, it is easy to reach the capital.

Granada owns one of the very best hotel infrastructures in Spain, since they are provided with almost 27,000 beds in hotels, apartments and guest-houses, besides numerous camp-sites located thoughout its geography.

EXCURSION 1: Coast of the Mediterranean and Morisco Villages

This privileged coast shines in its own right with such beautiful luminaries as are Salobreña, white dream of houses, erected over a hill that challenges the heavens. Salobreña’s Arabic castle rises above the white hill which is the town itself, overlooking the sea and its typical peñon (rock) in the beach. The weather is always agreeable, ideal for swimming or relaxing.

Not everything is just sand and water, for behind us plantations of avocados and chirimoyas (custard apples); banana, mango and medlar trees, and sugar cane await us, all giving a truly exotic flavour to the area.

Lanjarón, the most famous Spa town in Spain, is the great gateway to the Alpujarra. Its streets form a throng of activity due to the huge numbers of visitors that converge here to benefit from the mineral-medicinal waters.

The highest representative of Alpujarran gastronomy and its most luminous star is its renowned Trevélez serrano ham (mountain cured), the secret of which consists in its having been cured in Sierra Nevada’s snow.

EXCURSION 2: Altiplano Region, Caves and Castle

The great lake that occupied this lands millions of years ago, left at draining an altiplano which goes up at 1,000 mt. altitude.

Guadix is the largest and oldest town in this region. Augustus, the Roman Emperor, turned it into a military colony with the name of Acci. The Arabs contributed to its urban and architectural physiognomy with the walled Medina, built over a hill. From the Alcazaba, up on its top, the whole town can be viewed. Standing out from the rest, out of sheer size and beauty, its Renaissance and Barroque Cathedral.

In Guadix there are a huge conglomerate of dwellings dug out of the earth, make up an original quarter that constitutes a veritable troglodyte city. These type of landscapes and areas with inhabited cave dwellings are also found in Purullena, whose typical pottery -a jug called jarra accitana- is still outstanding.

Among Guadix and Sierra Nevada’s spurs we find a heavenly prairie with small and friendly villages dominated by the impressive mass of La Calahorra’s catle-palace. The Marquis and the Marchioness of Zenete made to build it just after the storming of Granada and, there it is as an outpost of the summit of snowy mountains and the deep fisures of the iron-mines of Alquife.

VISIT 3: Renaissance and Barroque Granada

Of the Muslim City we will visit La Alcaicería, the Moorish silk market, which is today a crafts centre, and La Madraza, formerly the Arab University. In the heart of the city, the Plateresque façade of La Lonja, the auction hall, faces the Royal Chapel and the Cathedral.

The Royal Chapel was founded by the Catholic Monarchs to receive their sepulchres that are in the crossing. The retable is a Plateresque jewel and the Museum of the Catholic Monarchs has very valuable paintings.

The Cathedral shows the transition of a Gothic project and a Renaissance construction. The façade is a masterpiece of Alonso Cano’s. The Main Chapel shows Diego de Siloé’s great architectural skill. Outstanding in the Cathedral Treasure is a figure of Christ by M.Montañés as well as a figure of the Virgin by A.Cano.

The University, after the square is named, was founded in the 16C by the Emperor Carlos V and nowadays is the College of Laws.

In the vicinity we find the Renaissance Monastery of San Jerónimo by Siloé with a magnificent retable, the beautiful Barroque Church of San Juan de Dios with a Churrigueresque reredos and the Renaissance Royal Hospital with Plateresque decoration and a Barroque portico, which is occupied by the Vice-Chancelor’s office.

Following the road to Alfacar we come to the Charterhouse (La Cartuja), a convent with impresive Barroque stucco decoration en the church and sacristy.

Near the Vega (southern zone), lies La Huerta de San Vicente, Federico García Lorca’s summer house situated within the boundaries of a park which bears the same name.

VISIT 4: Moslem Granada

This interesting itinerary begins at El Corral del Carbón, an old monument left by the Arabs, unique in its type, which served a depot for merchandise and lodging for merchants.

Afterwards we continue reaching Nueva Square where we find La Real Chancillería, a fine 16th century building in Renaissance style, and the Church of Santa Ana, built in the 16th century in Mudéjar style with Plateresque façade.

In the street called Carrera del Darro, we can visit Castril House (the Provincial Archaeological Museum) and the Arabs baths called El Bañuelo, which are several centuries older than those of the Alhambra.

After following the street called Cuesta de Gomérez, where we can find a typical crafts centre, we come to the southern side of the Alhambra below the Bermejas Towers in order to visit the Falla’s Carmen-cum-Museum and the Rodríguez Acosta - Gómez Moreno Museum.

El Realejo area, the Jewish quarter, where several churchs and convents are placed, and the Campo del Príncipe are the last points of this itinerary.

OPTION 5: Alhambra, Generalife and Muslim Museums

(This option is not organized by the Organizing Committee, but by the Hotel or Viajes Genil Travel Agency upon request. You must request, with the Tourist Guide in your language).

The Alhambra is the most interesting monument in Granada and the most beautiful one ever produced by Arabian Art anywhere in any country. It rises over the top of a hill called Assabica (red) which completely overlooks and dominates the city.

Inside the walled enclosure, there is the Palace of Carlos V, which houses the National Museum of Hispano-Muslim Art, which is unique of its kind in Spain, and the Museum of Fine Arts with paintings and sculptures from the 15C to 20C.

Adjacent to the Alhambra is the Generalife, leisure and recreacional area of the Nasrid kings. One will observe beautiful waterworks displays and ponds in an extremely well cared for garden with plentiful and varied flowers.
