Inquiry is one way to have student centered learning. Studies have shown that student centered learning produces some of the highest forms of learning. However, this is not a method often seen in a math setting and it can be daunting to think of how to incorporate it in your class.

If you even want to start smaller than a task, you can do some strategies which occur in tasks and PBL.
