Dear Colleagues, Friends, & Supporters,

This semester we decided to video tape our calculus classes (1 and 3). We noticed that many of our inquiry-based approaches apply to other undergraduate courses as well, modified for the particular audience of course. And we often hear questions about how to make IBL work in a calculus class. So from now on you will find references, images and videos for calculus as well as math for liberal arts courses in our blogs.

Dear Colleagues, Friends, & Supporters,

It is hard to believe that summer "break" is over. We just came back from a wonderful workshop in Ithaca, NY and are getting ready for our IBL classes. This month's blog is about "cool things", which help show your passion about mathematics to your students. Do you share with your students why you love mathematics?

Dear Colleagues, Friends, & Supporters,

It is August and it is time for us to think about planning the next semester. One of the important aspects of an inquiry-based classroom is to get to know your audience well as soon as possible. In our newest blog Phil Hotchkiss describes what is special about the "math for liberal arts" students and his tools for addressing this particular audience.
