Do Inquiry-Based Methods Work with Developmental Math?

Faculty are increasingly encountering topics that they can “no longer teach” to students in Developmental Mathematics. Topics include percentages, the point-slope formula, quadratic equations, and interpreting graphs. Failing with traditional approaches, the presenter has experimented the past years with inquiry-based approaches. Specifically the presenter has attempted problem-guided learning (PGL), inquiry-based learning (IBL), and, more recently, process oriented guided inquiry learning (POGIL). The early report is that POGIL is favored by the students and can produce results. The presenter will share his experiences with inquiry methods and will report on student perspectives.
