Chop Wood, Carry Water, Use Definitions: Survival Lessons of an IBL Rookie
Retsek, Dylan Q.
PRIMUS, v23 n2 p173-192 2013
This article describes the author's pedagogical transformation from "traditional" lecture-based instruction to Inquiry Based Learning (IBL) instruction of an introductory proofs class for sophomore mathematics majors. The story of the course overhaul follows from inception, through implementation, and ultimately to reflection. Quantitative and qualitative data suggest that the author's shift to IBL in this course was a change for the better. (Contains 10 tables.)
