"The authors cogently argue that a multicultural and a (subsequent) antiracist approach in school mathematics improves the learning of all pupils, not just black pupils."
"It includes a devastating critique of the stereotypical examples in a number of today's maths schemes: charts of temperatures only for cities in the white-dominated world: café menus for only British food; holidays spent only in Europe; This ingenious and varied book will help those planning their school curriculum to ensure that a mathematics course is indeed 'about something' as well as about teaching mathematics."
