Narrative Structure in Inquiry-Based Learning
Kinsey, L. Christine; Moore, Teresa E.
PRIMUS, v25 n3 p212-220 2015
Our goal with this paper is three-fold. We want to increase awareness of inquiry-based learning by presenting the strategy we use to develop and implement lessons and activities. We describe our approach to structuring lessons in mathematics in a way that engages the students by using language and constructs with which they are familiar from other non-science classes. Finally, we include samples from an exploration of celtic knots that we think works well to engage students in the inquiry process, making use of these ideas.
