Following up on my earlier posting:  One of my colleagues (in math education) asked for some IBL resources, partly with an interest in sharing some information with her secondary eduction mathematics students.  I ended up providing her with the following, which was a smattering of different types of resources.  

Many of these I found from the helpful list of resources at the Legacy of R. L. Moore site, http://www.legacyrlmoore.org/reference.html

"A Unit in High School Geometry without the Textbook", from Mathematics in the Secondary School Classroom, Rising and Wiesen, 1972, pp. 231-234.    This is an older resource, but it was the only one I found that dealt specifically with an IBL approach in a high school classroom, which seemed particularly relevant.

+Dana Ernst's post "What the Heck is IBL?" from the Math Ed Matters Blog, as an overview of IBL.  (http://maamathedmatters.blogspot.com/2013/05/what-heck-is-ibl.html)

Also as an introduction to Moore and his method, Keith Devlin's column, "The Greatest Math Teacher Ever?" (http://devlinsangle.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-greatest-math-teacher-ever.html)

"The Road to Present Day Inquiry Based Learning", on the "Why Use IBL?" page of the Academy of Inquiry Based Learning (http://www.inquirybasedlearning.org/?page=Why_Use_IBL#)  This is a nice overview which includes references to studies relating to IBL.  (I thought some education literature would be appropriate for a Math Education specialist here.)

"Assessing Long-Term Effects of Inquiry Based Learning: A Case Study from College Mathematics" (Marina Kogan, Sandra L. Laursen, in Innov High Educ (2014) 39:183-199; open access: http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10755-013-9269-9 )  Some further accessible math-ed research.

"A Quick Start Guide to the Moore Method", available on the Legacy of R. L. Moore site at http://www.legacyrlmoore.org/reference/quick_start.pdf .  I view this as a bit like a precursor to the excellent book, The Moore Method: A Pathway to Learner-Centered Instruction

And finally, "What is the Moore Method?" by William S. Mahavier.  (Primus, vol. 9, (December 1999): 339-254).  Also available at the Legacy website.

(On the last two:  While IBL is a broader category than Moore method, I tend to think any discussion of IBL in mathematics should include mention of the Moore method.)

I have a request from one of our mathematics education professors for a few basic an introductory articles on IBL to share with her secondary education students.

I'm sure I can come up with a few good articles, but I thought I would crowd source the question a bit here, and probably find good sources I haven't seen.

So:  If you were going to share some introductory articles (or other resources) on IBL with student planning on teaching high school mathematics, what would you use?

I made a short movie on teaching 6th graders about prime factorization with connecting cubes :) Got the idea from an inquiry based learning conference in Austin, TX.
