The principles confirm my current views about teaching and learning math. This is how I have naturally tackled mathematical learning throughout university, and how I have broken things down for my own students.

In recent years I have felt that this method of “guided discovery” has been shunned by the education world in favour of “inquiry learning”, which I have found to be both cumbersome and difficult for many students.

As for a time constraint, my experience is that if we don’t carefully scaffold our lessons so that all learners can engage, we will “waste” time reteaching.
