The first topic for the Math Teacher Training Seminar (MATH5905) this semester is Inquiry-Based Learning in Mathematics. I'll be posting some reference materials on this page to help with the discussion.

Journal of Inquiry-Based Learning in Mathematics
This is a bit of an interesting online journal, comprised of refereed and freely available course notes for various (mostly advanced undergraduate) courses.

Thirteen.org (New York Public Media)
A site about IBL in K-12. This topic became one of our main discussion points in the seminar. (How would IBL differ from primary to secondary education, and how might we influence math educators in K-12 to use IBL methods?)

The Legacy of R.L. Moore Project
Including information about the 14th Annual Legacy of R.L. Moore Conference in Washington DC during June 2-4, 2011.

Discovery Learning Project
"This project is predicated on the belief that all students have creative ability which can be further developed utilizing the many techniques of inquiry-based learning." The page is a bit sparse at present, but reflects an institution's IBL-based focus. (R.L. Moore taught at UT.)
