Contents
  • Introduction: a plea for rethinking the problem : language teaching and mathematics, the task of teaching mathematics to Yolngus -- Summary of an earlier programmatic statement : Yolngu logic and mathematics, Yolngu culture and mathematics -- The Yolngu number system Ny: so Yolngus have true numerals at all?, the trivial Yolngu method of counting, the Rulu system of counting, numerical coding of defiant graffitti, the game of Buta gat -- A brief analysis of Yolngu arithmetic Ay -- Amending the Yolngu arithmetic Ay by some extensions -- The first amendment to Ay introducing zero in Ay -- a general note on the introduction of more operations -- Further amendments to Yolngu arithmetic Ay: defining more algebraic structures -- Outlook: glancing beyond Yolngu arithmetic: extending N, the next leap forward: algebraic numbers. Appendices: Examples of the Buta Gat game, synoptic table summing up the algebraic structures in Ay and its amendments
