Inquiry based learning (IBL) has been highly successful both in mathematics and mathematics education environments. Via IBL, students actively participate in their mathematical education. They become adept at understanding and explaining mathematics.
In this workshop we will discuss IBL methods in a variety of settings. In particular we will feature sessions on
- The Freshman Experience
- The Math Major Experience
- Math Education
Experienced instructors will present and discuss their experiences. Workshop participants will be prepared to present effective IBL style courses after the workshop. Participants will be connected to a mentoring support system to help them as they implement these ideas in their own institutions.
Presenters will come from a diverse set of institutions: California Polytechnic University, De Paul University, Kenyon College, Marshall University, University of Chicago, UCSB, University of Colorado, University of Michigan and University of Texas.
