Academy for Inquiry-Based Learning (AIBL)
- The Academy is an association of professors, instructors, teachers and non-teaching supporters (such as retired professors having substantial IBL experience, administrators, foundation personnel) who are committed to developing and disseminating guided inquiry based learning (IBL) techniques.
- The email-based discussion group for Friends of the Legacy Project is open to any interested persons. Topics include, but are not limited to, the Moore Method and Inquiry-Based Learning. There are settings for controlling your subscription via the web.

Legacy of R. L. Moore
- Project NExT, a
national program for new or recent Ph.D's in the mathematical sciences who are
interested in improving the teaching and learning of undergraduate
mathematics. The Legacy of R.L. Moore Project is a supporter of
- The Discovery
Learning Project at the University of Texas at Austin promotes the
development and use of discovery or inquiry-based methods of teaching and
learning. It is supported by the Educational Advancement Foundation.
- At the University of California, Santa Barbara, the Department of Mathematics Center for Mathematical Inquiry is devoted to the "continued development of inquiry-based learning approaches in the teaching of mathematics and the continued development of a research base that examines teaching and learning through inquiry-based practices." It is supported by the Educational Advancement Foundation.
- The Mathematical Association of America’s Committee on the Undergraduate
Program in Mathematics has developed the CUPM
Curriculum Guide 2004. Its extensive list of Illustrative Resources
includes Inquiry-Based Learning references and the Moore Method in
particular. See, for example, Part I, Section 2 "Develop mathematical
thinking and communications skills".
- MathNerds provides free inquiry-based question-and-answer support in mathematics through a volunteer network of more than one hundred mathematicians.
- The Journal of Inquiry-Based Learning in
Mathematics includes more than 1800 pages of inquiry-based course materials available for download and use.
- Emory University Libraries has created a research resource on R.
L. Moore and the "Moore Method" in its collection of subject
and course guides.
- The UTeach program at the University of Texas at Austin is a partnership of the College
of Natural Sciences, the College of Education and the Austin Independent
School District, and provides teacher education intended to increase the
number and diversity of competent mathematics, science, and computer science
students entering the teaching field and assuming positions of educational
leadership in their fields. The Educational Advancement Foundation has been
a supporter of UTeach.
- National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
- Mathematical Association of America
- American Mathematical Society
- The Archives of American Mathematics at the Center for American History, The University of Texas at Austin,
includes the R.L. Moore Papers and the Legacy oral history collection. It is supported through funding
provided by the Mathematical Association of America and the Legacy of R.L.
- Mathematics Genealogy Project provides information on the doctoral supervising professor and students of
- The Smithsonian American History Museum treats the history of teaching mathematics in America.
