Dear Colleagues, Friends, & Supporters,

We are very excited that the Special Edition of PRIMUS, guest edited by our DAoM team, on "Using Inquiry-Based Learning in Mathematics for Liberal Arts Courses" has now been published online!

In our April blog we are thinking about inquiry in the context of differentiated instruction: how can inquiry help reach students at different levels? We claim that inquiry IS differentiation.

We will be at the PREP workshop in San Louis Obispo in July, please consider registering for this IBL workshop (focussing on preparing college level IBL courses).

In case you have missed it: our website now allows faculty to create a free faculty account and access teacher materials to some of our books. We are working on completing the teacher materials for all the books. Please have a look and tell us what you think.

As the title of this blog post suggests I believe that inquiry helps tremendously in reaching learners on different levels at the same time - even if they all work on the same investigations. Why? First of all, students can work at their own pace.
