 The Robert Noyce Scholars Program and the Mathematics Department at Nazareth College present "Adventures with the Moore Method as a Student and Teacher," by Dr. Lee May.

The Moore Method is an innovative, inquiry-based method of instruction that was begun about 100 years ago by R. L. Moore. While this pedagogical method had its start in mathematics classrooms, it can easily be used in any discipline.

Dr. Lee May, a renowned follower of R.L. Moore and co-author of The Moore Method: A Pathway to Learner-Centered Instruction, will describe how he first experienced this method as a student of disciples of R.L. Moore, why he decided to use this method in his own classroom, success stories, pitfalls, and secrets to effective implementation.

Lee May holds a bachelor’s degree from Wake Forest University and a Ph.D. from Emory University. He is Professor of Mathematics at Salisbury University in Salisbury, Maryland. He has received the Outstanding College Teacher of Mathematics from the Maryland Council of Teachers of Mathematics. He has also received the John M. Smith Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching from the MD-DC-VA Section of the Mathematical Association of America.
