Like counterbalance to those visions, that unfortunately still prevail, and from the studies partner-philosophical of science and technology to investigations and educative proposals CTS that have been sustained in the constructivist theory of the learning and are very it jeopardize with the development of abilities and individual and social values, in agreement with the majority of the present educative proposals have been developed. Some of the impelling agencies of proposals CTS in the educative land are: Organization of the United Nations for the Education, Science and the Culture, UNESCO. 2. National for Association Science Technology and Society (NASTS-USA). 3.

National Science Teachers Association (NSTA- the USA). 4. For Association Science Education (ASE-UK). This dimension has like central intention, in the educative scope: to train people able to act like responsible citizens who can make decisions reasoned and democratic on diverse aspects from science and the technology that concerns to him to the society. This dimension in addition can give sense to the knowledge that learn the students. To collaborate to train citizens able to freely think with knowledge of cause and social responsibility.

To contribute to unite the world of science and the technology with the one of the humanities and to serve as motivating element for the students. The objectives of current CTS in field we can agglutinate the educative them in the following: 1. To prepare the student to apply the scientific knowledge in its daily life. 2. To foment the analysis of the social and environmental implications in relation to the scientific and technological development of the nations. 3. To train citizens informed and with capacity to make decisions on present problems and subjects. 4. To develop a critical reasoning with capacity to solve problems. 5. To stimulate the moral and intellectual growth to the students so that they are developed like independent and rational individuals.

D' Ambrsio is considered one of the biggest names of the Etnomatemtica in Brazil. It does not limit the field of the Etnomatemtica to the study of systems or ideas literally mathematicians of different peoples, but, mention themselves in sufficiently ample way to ' ' art or technique to explain, to know, to understand the contexts culturais' ' , conception that according to author is next to a knowledge theory or ' ' theory of cognio' '. The related works most current to the Etnomatemtica prove that the Mathematics develops of distinct form between some cultures and express for particular forms to reason logically translated for different forms to quantify, to calculate and to measure. According to Anastcio (1993, P. 59): The Etnomatemtica is defined as the mathematics of the environment or mathematics of the community. It is the way particular (and perhaps peculiar) where specific cultural groups carry through the tasks to count, to classify, to command and to measure. Hunting (1980) defines it as ' ' the used mathematics for a cultural group defined when dealing with problems and activities in its meio' '.

Blacksmith (1997) in its bulletin published in the International Group of Studies on Etnomatemtica (ISGEm), defines the Etnomatemtica as one ' ' mathematics codified in knowing-fazer' ' Ascher (1997 considers) it as ' ' the mathematics of the peoples not-scholars, recognizing, as mathematical thought, slight knowledge, that in some way they correspond what we have in our culture. Ahead of the diversity of given approaches the Etnomatemtica can be affirmed that the formularization of a definitive concept on the Etnomatemtica, especially for if dealing with a new perspective in the Mathematical Education, still meets in formation process. Thus, all the presented definitions provisory and are established by professors and researchers who organize the etnomatemticos studies.

Stay are very important prerequisites for a successful high school: tolerance, flexibility, curiosity, perseverance and open-mindedness.

They be verified carefully by the partner organisations. It explains the program and obtained references about the family. The selection criteria are tolerance of foreign customs, religions and cultures, secure financial circumstances, as well as the presence of a suitable high school within easy reach. Learn more about the international student exchange: ../high-school-year bildungsdoc including seminars and workshops to the education and training of independent educational consultants in all Germany performs, continue to accelerate the construction of the training pool for independent education counselling. Four different databases are integrated on the website of bildungsdoc, in which educators, education consultant and network partners with their profile can sign up.
