What is inquiry-based learning in mathematics?

Dr Jennifer Chang Wathall discusses the features of inquiry-based learning in mathematics that she has identified through her work with teachers. Jennifer's key conclusion, which we at Inquiry Maths very much agree with, is that teachers should draw on their unique skills and interests to co-create a shared understanding of inquiry for their own context.

Jennifer has also showcased the Inquiry Maths website on her YouTube channel: 119. Inquiry Maths.
