An old adage states: "Tell me and I forget, show me and I remember, involve me and I understand." The last part of that statement is the essence of inquiry based learning. Inquiry is defined as a seeking for truth, information, or knowledge - seeking information by questioning. Our goal is to have an inquiry based math class. This year we are turning our Jr. High math classes into classes that not only teach us mathematics, but teach us how mathematics applies to our life. We will do a lot of hands on, real world applications of the math we are learning; that will help us understand how important math is outside of the school building and how it relates to our everyday lives.
