This presentation was given by Caitriona Martin in December
2014 at the Surrey Maths Network (UK) to teachers of mathematics. It includes examples of inquiries from Caitriona's own classroom.
The original presentation (slide 7) had a clip of Jo Boaler saying: "If you ask a mathematician what they do, they'll say that they always start by having to have a good question - to pose a question. Students never do that in maths classrooms. They may ask questions for help, but
actually being immersed in a mathematical situation and coming up with a question doesn't happen." Teaching students to pose mathematical questions is one key aim of inquiry maths.
Below is the presentation used during the inquiry maths workshop at the National Mathematics Teacher Conference, Kettering (UK), in September 2014.
This is a presentation given by Dr. Daniela Vasile (Head of Mathematics, South Island School, Hong Kong) during a workshop for 30 teachers on October 3, 2014. Inquiry maths is set in the wider context of inquiry learning.
