Moore method & inquiry-based learning

Loosely speaking, in the Moore method and in the more recent “inquiry-based learning,” students learn mathematics by tackling a carefully chosen sequence of problems provided by the instructor. They then teach each other the content by presenting their solutions to each other. Details vary (e.g., in some cases learning is individual while in others it is collaborative; in some cases lectures on the content are also available; in some cases the instructor meets with students in small groups to guide inquiry).
