Inquiry Maths

Inquiry maths is a model of teaching that encourages students to regulate their own activity while exploring a mathematical statement called a prompt. Inquiries can involve a class on diverse paths of exploration or in listening to a teacher's exposition. In inquiry maths, students take responsibility for directing the lesson with the teacher acting as the arbiter of legitimate mathematical activity.

The collection contains three sub-collections containing number themed prompts, algebraic themed prompts and geometry themed prompts. Further information about inquiry lessons and how to create your own prompts can be found on the inquiry maths website.
