This booklet is the 1st within the box to without delay handle ethical reasoning and socioscientific discourse. It presents a theoretical framework to reconsider what a "functional view" of medical literacy involves through interpreting how nature of technology matters, school room discourse matters, cultural matters, and science-technology-society-environment case-based concerns give a contribution to constructing conduct of brain approximately socioscientific content material.

It was Heraclitus who pointed out that you can never step into the same river twice, an opinion which one intuitively feels would be very acceptable to the Navajos. What else can we learn about 'locating' from studies on other continents? The Aborigines' ability to find their way in what to anyone else would be a featureless landscape has been part of Australian folklore for many years. When asked by an anthropologist what they do if they get lost, some Aborigines answered "We go home". They had no concept of getting lost!
We can begin to recognise the possibility that all cultures engage in mathematical activity. 2. THE SEARCH FOR MATHEMATICAL SIMILARITIES My first draft of this chapter covered what I considered to be the four key areas of mathematics - number, measurement, geometry and language/logic. I soon realised, and my critics confirmed, that I should have included more aspects, but my problem was how to describe and label them. Also 'topics' like these turned out not to be the best way to approach the similarities I was after.
We can begin to learn about the strengths of Kpelle culture. By doing this with all such studies we can begin to control the culturo-centrism which anyone suffers from when viewing other cultures. Indeed we can start to see mathematical similarities between 'us' and 'them'. We can begin to recognise the possibility that all cultures engage in mathematical activity. 2.
