Each day of an inquiry based lesson takes between 55 and 70 minutes, the amount of time usually allotted for a math block. Inquiry based lessons require minimal prep (reviewing the inquiry, making copies of the inquiry sheets, setting up a projector, etc.). Preparing for an in can be done in advance, leaving the entire math block for the inquiry.

Each day of an inquiry based lesson follows a similar structure. Below, you will find the suggested timing for each part of an inquiry:

**Daily Review**- 3 minutes for students to work, 3 minutes to review**Inquiry Video**- 5 minutes (play 2x)**Determining the Purpose of the Inquiry**- 5 minutes**Determining the Question to Answer**- 5 minutes**Reviewing Suggested Questions**- 2 minutes**Forming Groups / Reviewing Guidelines**- 4 minutes**Inquiry Group Work**- 10 minutes**Group Presentation**- 10 minutes**Correct Solution**- 5 minutes**Reflection**- 5 minutes**Front Row Practice**- 15 minutes

Note that a bulk of the time is spent on group work and sharing strategies. This is a * suggested* structure, and teachers should feel free to modify as they see necessary.
