dc.description.abstract Traditionally, multicultural education is not seen as something that those from the mainstream need to concern themselves with unless it is as a holiday fill-in activity. Intercultural education on the other hand explores the responsibility for the construction of culture by mainstream society. In this article, I explore my role in the delivering of mathematics education courses in teacher education programs in three countries: New Zealand, Australia, and Sweden. I focus on my attempts to raise mainstream as well as minority students’ awareness of intercultural understandings. Different approaches, including the use of storytelling, were used to match local circumstances but all had the same aim of making preservice teachers reappraise the role that mathematics education has in marginalising some children's cultural backgrounds. en_US
