Inquiry Maths provides a large variety of resources for teaching and encouraging inquiry math practices. Choose from different content options to find complete lesson activities with everything needed to guide students through the inquiry process such as a lesson outline, lesson and mathematical notes, examples, downloads for use on whiteboards, and even classroom posters. Other links provide background information to understand and research how to teach using inquiry math concepts. The first set of links found on the site is for upper elementary and secondary math. Use the last link on the list to find prompts and resources for primary students. The site was created in the UK, so some of the pronunciations and spellings may differ from those in American English.

tag(s): angles (52), area (52), equations (120), fractions (163), geometric shapes (135), mean (20), median (16), mode (13), number sense (72), perimeter (20)

In the Classroom

Take advantage of the free lessons and materials found on this site for teaching math. Collaborate with colleagues and use this site for professional development as you implement inquiry math into your curriculum. Use prompts and problems from this site for group learning activities and in your math centers. Challenge cooperative learning groups to create videos demonstrating their learning and share them on a site such as TeacherTube reviewed here.

Use ideas from this activity and have students create an annotated image including text boxes and related links using a tool such as Thinglink, reviewed here, to explain what they learned.

Comments

In the fractions section in the lumber yard, there is an error in the program. Even though an activity is listed as correct, the program does not place a check mark on the activity to show that it was completed successfully. Note from the editor: Thank you for the information about this tool. Sharon, PA, Grades: 0 - 8

This word cloud generator is similar to other word clouds except it includes a fascinating mathematical twist. Enter any URL or text to begin a word cloud, and then start playing with the different options. In addition to changing the font, take the time to play with the angle parameters. Move the arrowheads and rotate to view different orientations of the same text. Other options limit the number of words, the amount of words per line, or spiral and scale of the image. When finished, download and save the image as a PNG or SVG file. Jason Davies' Word Cloud Generator works on any device with a modern browser and Internet access.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): angles (52), measurement (127), word clouds (13)

In the Classroom

This site is perfect for use on an interactive whiteboard or projector to combine language and math lessons. Allow students to play with the options for angles to view changes made to word clouds. Create and print word clouds with different angle setups to display on your classroom bulletin board.

In the Classroom

Share with students on your interactive whiteboard and take the demo course together. This is perfect for use with gifted and advanced students as an option for college level courses and enrichment. Allow gifted students to enroll in courses that interest them or that provide enrichment beyond classroom content. Share with others, in your building, as a resource for professional development. Explore the topics yourself for some new, engaging topics to round out your own expertise. Allow students to enroll in a course that would fit into their career goals as an exploratory opportunity in that field.
