Dear Colleagues, Friends, & Supporters,

This month, we are excited to feature Part 2 of reflections by Steven Strogatz (Cornell) about using our DAoM materials and inquiry pedagogy in his mathematics for liberal arts class. How will he get students to give IBL a try? How will they respond to being given a problem without being shown a solution? What will be their experiences of making sense of mathematics?

Dear Colleagues, Friends, & Supporters,

This month, we are excited to feature Part 1 of reflections by Steven Strogatz (Cornell) about using our DAoM materials and inquiry pedagogy in his mathematics for liberal arts class. He writes:

What happened over the rest of that semester turned out to be the most astonishing, uplifting experience I’ve ever had as a teacher.
