Viewing a Unit on Inquiry through the Lens of Mathematics

The following diagram shows a sample process for viewing a unit of inquiry through the lens of mathematics. This has been developed as an example of how teachers can identify the mathematical concepts, skills and knowledge required to successfully engage in the units of inquiry.

Note: It is important that the integrity of a central idea and ensuing inquiry is not jeopardized by a subjectspecific focus too early in the collaborative planning process. Once an inquiry has been planned through to identification of learning experiences, it would be appropriate to consider the following process.
