Learning Mathematics Through Inquiry from the Author: Raffaella Borasi. Raffaella Borasi worked closely with two high school girls who did not like math and who rarely had achieved any degree of success in the subject. Over the course of ten lessons, the students and Raffaella engaged in a personal inquiry into the nature of mathematical definitions.

Thinking Through Mathematics Book 3 from the Author: Sue Allmond. Mathematical inquiry challenges students to ask questions, create definitions and think very carefully about how they are going to solve a problem. With the emphasis on mathematical reasoning, judgement and problem-solving skills, the Thinking through Mathematics series requires students to investigate questions that are open-ended and ambiguous, rather than closed and defined. The process of reasoning is reinforced as students consider the parameters of their inquiry, formulate, trial and enact a plan, and share their thinking process alongside the results. Each book provides ten mathematical inquiry units, each posing a real-life, ambiguous question for inquiry, such as: Are athletes getting better over time? Students explore measurement and pose hypotheses about the factors influencing sporting records, as they interpret, analyse and discuss a variety of data representations. What is the best walking school bus route in our school catchment area? Students explore measurement, time and distance conversions, mapping conventions (including scale), and the social and environmental benefits of a healthy, safe route, appropriate for students of all ages to get to their school. Each of the ten units follows five phases of inquiry: Discover (engage with the problem) Devise (create a plan) Develop (implement the plan) Defend (justify and communicate solutions and the decisions made) Diverge (optional: explore alternative pathways) Notes for the teacher make the process of mathematical inquiry transparent, covering the activity sequence, question prompts, key vocabulary, communicating understandings and writing meaningful reflections. ‘In Action’ sections share the authors’ experience trialling and testing these mathematical inquiries in their own classrooms, and how they develop mathematical understanding in their students. Thinking through Mathematics provides a practical entry into inquiry-based mathematics learning which immerses students in solving authentic, complex problems.

Elementary Mathematics And Science Methods from the Author: Gerald W. Foster. Using constructivist theory and inquiry learning methods, Foster presents a text that both meets national standards and satisfies the needs of this emerging market. This book will appeal to those who have embraced the NCTCM standards and the reform philosophy of using collaborative learning, real-world applications, and the discovery method for teaching math and science concepts. Students learn how to teach children about math through science, and science through math. Parallels are drawn between the two subjects to make them applicable to everyday life. Foster shows the student how to encourage learning in their students (teaching how to learn) rather than merely teaching their students what to learn (i.e., memorization). The text uses practical activities for students to use in their future classroom to facilitate learning and create inquisitive learners.

Cases On Inquiry Through Instructional Technology In Math And Science from the Author: Lennex, Lesia. There exists a wealth of information about inquiry and about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), but current research lacks meaningfully written, thoughtful applications of both topics.Cases on Inquiry through Instructional Technology in Math and Science represents the work of many authors toward meaningful discourse of inquiry used in STEM teaching. This book presents insightful information to teachers and teacher education candidates about using inquiry in the real classroom, case studies from which research suggests appropriate uses, and tangible direction for creating their own inquiry based STEM activities. Sections take the reader logically through the meaning of inquiry in STEM teaching, how to use technology in modern classrooms, STEM projects which successfully integrate inquiry methodology, and inquiry problem solving within STEM classrooms with the aim of creating activities and models useful for real-world classrooms.

Learning Mathematics from the Author: Prof Leone Burton. Learning Mathematics brings together a collection of interrelated and forward-looking chapters by internationally recognized experts that explores changes in the theories and practices of learning (and teaching) mathematics. The authors reject a traditional, transmission view of the teaching of mathematics which has proved so ineffective for learning. In its place they offer information gathered from research and from practice about effects on the learners seeking to create and negotiate meaning. Learners are presented as actively attempting to make sense of the mathematics they encounter, and learners, teachers and researchers are offered examples of ho such sense-making activities, incorporated into mathematics classrooms, impact on coming to know. The book celebrates both diversity, in the range of different perspectives, contributions and topics, and unity, in the linking chapters and themes, It will be fascinating reading for those mathematics educators who are eager to engage with a socio-cultural perspective in order to better understand the complexity of learning mathematics.
