Dear Colleagues, Friends, & Supporters,

For this month's blog Julian Fleron shares about how our project informs our work with mathematics majors, empowering them to "discover the ideas behind the formulas, explore the proofs behind the theorems, or learn about the mathematicians who changed the world with their creative minds," in the words of Rachel Fountain, a DAoM student turned mathematics major at Westfield.

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?
