Mathetics: growing interest divided over the world.

With the help of Google it is possible to see how often words and concepts are being searched. Either all over the world in a particular country or part of that country. Although rather elementary it gives an idea of the popularity of the term or concept in question.

Starting from 2004 there is a more than doubled interest in Mathetics as a search item. The top ten countries, in which the term is searched rather much are:

1. Australia
2. United Kingdom
3. United States
4.South Africa
5. Thailand
6. Singapore
8. Philippines
9. New Zealand
10. Netherlands

Although mathetics got twice as much attention as in 2004, Europe seems to play a minor role in searching the word. Only the United Kingdom and the Netherland have a place in the top ten from this moment. Next question would be to relate this to the educational developments in the countries. Why is there a growing interest and does it correlate with the search interests of people.

It surprises me that Germany is not in the list. I tried myself today, and the situation is the same. Of course you are right that it does not say something about the development or even appreciation. I would like to know what people searched. Can we exchange these things to get a (bit of an) answer? I'll sent you my e-mail addres.

Here in Italy i do not hear much about the concept of mathetics. But i am excited about it and am trying to work with it in my thesis. In my view it offers a new coherence for all these hype bound new terminology. Tell you later more about it. I'll keep in touch and would like to exchange.

Hi there,

Here, downunder, mathetics is known at our University. We see more and more independent (mathetic) learning in our country and feel the need for more knowledge and suitable models to deal with it.

Hi Gary,

Cannot agree with you about your thesis that we see more and more mathetic learning in Australia. At least not in the schools i visited.
