Subject: Moore method


Hello all

There was a lot of discussion about the Moore method:

http://www2.stetson.edu/~mhale/teach/moore.htm
http://mathoverflow.net/questions/12070/what-are-the-advantages-and-disadvantages-of-the-moore-method
http://www-history.mcs.st-and.ac.uk/Extras/Halmos_Moore_method.html
http://mathbrief.blogspot.pt/2011/01/topology-and-moore-method-ie-what-ill.html

The MAA published a book about the method:

http://www.maa.org/ebooks/notes/NTE75.html

There is a website dedicated to Moore legacy:

http://legacyrlmoore.org/

What is the present status of Moore method? Do a lot of people use it nowadays?
Is it effective to teach post calculus mathematics? Do we have new approaches
to advanced mathematics teaching that use methods based on Moore method?

Cordially,
Jaime Carvalho e Silva
