** The search engine works best with simple, broad searches. Instead of seaching for "what is the link between education and incarceration", search under "prisons" and see if any of the results contain information about education (which some of them do).

1. Ethnomathematics. A Multicultural View of Mathematical Ideas (external link)
Abstract: The primary cultures investigated are the Inuit, Navajo, and Iroquois of North America; the Incas, the Malejula, Warlpiri, Maori, and Caroline Islanders of the Pacific; and the Tshokwe, Bushoong, and Kpelle of Africa. Since the vast majority of potential readers have never heard of most of these cultures, reading the book has value as a simple exercise in horizon expanding. In all cases the level of mathematics is not deep, but some exposure to the particular concept is essential.
Category: Graphing, Chance, Symmetry

2. Who Does the Lottery Benefit? (internal link)
Abstract: The goal of this lesson is that students consider some of the arguments against the lottery and how it functions as a regressive tax. The mathematics involved include combinations, permutations, and probability.
Category: Chance, Probability, Permutations, Combinations
