Abstract

Setting out to develop culturally contextualised curriculum support materials for teachers and students and a material for parental awareness, the project produced five sets of support materials incorporating the cultural practices of Tamang and Gopali communities. By following a two-phase procedural strategy the project demonstrated a unique possibility of integrating Nepali local cultural practices in school mathematics curriculum.
