Although it may seem that mathematics education material does not need any enculturation, the opposite is true. We report the results of a case study in several European countries and describe the different dimensions in which mathematics educational material has to be adapted to the cultural context of the learner. We describe the knowledge representation and mechanisms through which the user-adaptive learning platform ActiveMath realizes those adaptations to the language, countries, and communities of practice.
