Abstract Inquiry-based mathematics education (IBME) refers to a student-centered paradigm of teaching mathematics and science, in which students are invited to work in ways similar to how mathematicians and scientists work. This means they have to observe phenomena, ask questions, look for mathematical and scientific ways of how to answer these questions (like carrying out experiments, systematically controlling variables, drawing diagrams, calculating, looking for patterns and relationships, making conjectures and generalizations), interpret and evaluate their solutions and communicate and discuss their solutions effectively. The role of the teacher in such a setting is different to traditional teaching...
