Subject: software and mathematics Perhaps someone here can help me out with thoughts or references to work on the question of software and mathematics. This is an old question, as you may know, but to my knowledge it has always been pursued from the perspective of modern Western mathematics. Has anyone to your knowledge raised the question with ethnomathematics in mind? Has anyone asked what kind of maths software might be, allowing maths to be any kind of practical reckoning, symbolic or numerical? I may be asking the wrong question, so a course-correction is perhaps what I need. Any comments? Many thanks.
