What is an inquiry-based curriculum?

An inquiry-based curriculum puts the student at the center of learning. As students investigate real-world math problems and present their ideas, their conceptual understanding deepens. As they discuss their ideas with peers, they become more creative problem solvers. The teacher supports these conversations with guided questions, interpretation, and emphasis.
