As we were talking with visitors at the Baltimore Joint Mathematics Meetings about why we are using inquiry-based learning, especially with liberal arts students, we realized that we needed to put it in writing. To explain why, we wrote a blog post, including a classroom video and beautiful examples of original student work (a painting, poem, song, and quote).
Past News & Announcements
We are posting news, announcements, and status reports as our project progresses. Please feel free to contact us if there is information that you would like that you cannot find here or elsewhere on our site.
We are excited to report that our Discovering the Art of Mathematics booth at the Joint Mathematics Meetings (meetings attended by almost 6,500 in Baltimore, MD from 15 - 18 January) met with enormous success!!
Great many thanks to all of you who visited! The outpouring of support, encouragement and gratitude we received was tremendous.
For those who were not at JMM, here's how it went…
This semester we video taped four of our IBL sections and are now in the process of reviewing and editing them. Some of the resulting clips bring our new blog post about facilitating "Whole Class Discussions" (including four of our new classroom videos).
We are excited to present our materials for the first time in the exhibit hall at the joint meetings. http://jointmathematicsmeetings.org/jmm
Come join us in Baltimore in January 2014 to browse our books, explore (and actually do) some of our activities yourself, watch videos from our classrooms and, of course, connect with us!
