Making Local to Global Connections
analyze a single issue from multiple perspectives
contributions from people around the world
contested assumptions and intellectual debates
  • A local to global example from calculus could be that Euclidean geometry or rectangular coordinates is useful on a local/arbitrarily small scale but on a global scale other geometry and coordinate systems are important. More specifically, a dx term is infinitessimal (local) but the global function shape is also important for an area calculation like the integral over a region. [multiple perspectives as well as using local info to help solve global problems]
