This is the summary of a presentation given at the 74th Annual NCTM Meeting, 25-28 April 1996, San Diego, CA.

Inquiry Approaches:
Windows of Opportunity for Middle School Students

Participants will carry out and analyze inquiry based mathematics tasks and approaches for their potential to develop mathematical thinking among middle school students with learning disabilities. Investigations highlighting area and numerical reasoning/number sense will serve to exemplify characteristics of an inquiry approach that, with appropriate modification, can help meet the needs of diverse learners. Regular education teachers involved in inclusion settings will share their perspectives and their students' work.
