Images of mathematics in togo, west Africa

Social Epistemology 14 (1):43 – 53 (2000)
Abstract
On a stroll down a neighbourhood street in Togo, one is likely to see: little boys playing with homemade toys that roll and can be pushed with a stick or pulled on a string; girls helping their mother around the house and tending younger siblings; men sitting chatting with friends, smoking and playing dice games or zipping by on a variety of two-wheelers; women waiting at the pump for their turn to fill their basins before 2 p.m. when the pump is locked for the day and girls doing errands or selling small items
