Inquiry Based Inquiry-Based Math Program for Grades K-5
Inquiring minds. Exceptional results.
Years of classroom research and scores of passionate teachers stand behind Savvas’s K-5 inquiry solution: Investigations 3. As students evaluate, present, and discuss their work using real world problems, their understanding deepens. As they hear their peers’ different approaches to solving the problems, they learn there are many ways to arrive at an answer.
What does an inquiry based math classroom look like?
In an Inquiry-based classroom…
Students actively investigate and solve problems, with a focus not only on what concepts students learn, but also the ways in which they learn them.
Teachers facilitate conceptual understanding by providing students significant independence to guide their own learning.
Professional development for the program is essential; it is embedded and continuously delivered as part of the curriculum.
Daily Observational Assessment support guides instruction in addition to more traditional Formative and Summative assessment resources.
The lesson model supports collaboration and group work throughout the lesson.
