Dear Colleagues, Friends, & Supporters,

We hope you had a wonderful summer. Christine von Renesse enjoyed collaborating with the Budapest Semesters in Mathematics Education (BSME) Program in Hungary and teachers in Neuruppin, Germany on ideas of inquiry.

In this month's blog, Julian Fleron showcases a powerful piece of mathematical art that he and his students worked on during Spring 2018.

Dear Colleagues, Friends, & Supporters,

We just facilitated IBL workshops at Holyoke Community College (MA) and the north-eastern MAA meeting. It was wonderful to connect with colleagues close by. We are excited to work with a group of colleagues toward a regional IBL community. We are planning a day-long IBL conference in New England in the fall. If you are interested in being involved with a regional IBL community, send us an email!
