Paul Aniceto has written a brilliant post about the impact of Inquiry on pupils' mindset. 'Math Talk: It's more than just talk. It's about addressing status and curbing a fixed mindset.'

I am currently taking part in a lesson study to look at the impact of Inquiry on pupils' understanding of fractions. I have been working with colleagues from two other schools, further schools will become involved in the study in June 2014.
As part of the lesson planning process we collaboratively planned an Inquiry lesson using a fractions prompt. Each teacher identified three pupils from their class whose mathematical reasoning during the lesson would be the focus of the observation. Prior to teaching the lesson the class teacher reflected on how he/she expected these three pupils to respond to the process of Inquiry and
reason mathematically. The two other teachers then closely observed how these three pupils actually responded. Links to the resources we used are below, as is the students' responses to the questionnaire. Our reflections will be uploaded to this page soon.
We used the Pete Dudley model for our lesson study, link below.
