All students should understand that mathematics involves a search for patterns, structures, and connections; that investigations are guided by problem-posing, conjectures, experimentation, and proof; and that there are many important skills and habits of mind that they can practice that will help them in their mathematical journey. The National Science Foundation has funded a project by the Education Development Center (EDC) that not only offers a curriculum for teaching mathematics research, but also supplies working mathematicians as online mentors for teachers and their students as they take on the challenges of open-ended explorations. This project is called Making Mathematics and is a resource for both teachers and students.
