The Impact of Inquiry-Based Mathematics Courses on Content Knowledge and Classroom Practice


"This study includes middle grades teachers participating in the first of a series
of inquiry-based mathematics content courses as well as pre-service teachers enrolled in an inquiry-based university course. A variety of data sources (including objective assessment, performance assessment, portfolios, a behavioral checklist, classroom observations and participant surveys) are used to provide a comprehensive picture of
participants as learners and teachers of mathematics. This paper describes changes in participants' content knowledge and classroom practice."
