Dear Colleagues, Friends, & Supporters,
We hope you had a great fall semester and winter break! We are looking forward to going to the Joint Meetings in Denver soon. Please come visit us at the MLI booth, the NSF poster session, or come find us at one of the many other IBL related events.
There are three new blog posts that all connect to the idea of how future or in-service teachers can learn how to teach with inquiry. We describe three different models: a lab class in which future teacher work with high school students every week, a teaching assistant experience in an inquiry-based pre-calculus class, and a graduate class with an in-service teacher who implemented routines for reasoning in an intervention classroom.
We are also actively involved in the New England Inquiry-Based Learning in Mathematics Community (notice the new web site!). Our next events are on March 28th. If you live in or close to New England, make sure to join the email list to stay updated on events and professional learning communities!
If you want to spend time this summer to learn more about IBL and plan your own class in detail, consider the week-long workshops organized by AIBL.
We hope to see you at JMM,
p.s. In case you have missed it: our website now allows faculty to create a free account and access teacher materials to some of our books. We are working on completing the teacher materials for all the books. Please have a look and tell us what you think.
