When Inverness evaluators came to my school to evaluate the effect a grant had had on math teaching in our district, the evaluators were impressed by the level of interaction among the students. They interviewed random students to see what the students thought about CPM and the inquiry approach. Almost all of the responses were positive. One student said that although his grade was not as good as it had been the previous year, he understood the math for the first time. He was very enthusiastic about his experience and did not want to go back to traditional instruction.
