IBL SIGMAA · Asking Questions Together

Inquiry-Based Learning SIGMAA

A Special Interest Group of the Mathematical Association of America


Inquiry-based learning (IBL) in Mathematics is a pedagogical framework in which students develop deep mathematical insights through collaborative, communicative, and comprehension-building activities. The purpose of IBL SIGMAA is to bring practitioners and others interested in IBL together to share teaching resources and experiences, encourage and publicize research related to IBL, and to promote the proliferation of IBL in Mathematics through conversation and professional development. Teachers and researchers come to the IBL community for diverse reasons, and this SIGMAA is committed to a broad and inclusive definition of IBL in terms of both classroom implementation and the populations it can serve, including those populations historically underserved by our discipline.
