The Mathematical Inquiry Project (MIP) is a statewide collaboration among mathematics faculty in Oklahoma to improve entry-level undergraduate mathematics instruction through three guiding principles:

Students learn through engaging in deep problems requiring them to select, perform, and evaluate actions whose structures are equivalent to the structures of the concepts to be learned.

Applications are incorporated in mathematics classes to support students in identifying mathematical relationships, making and justifying claims, and generalizing across contexts to extract common mathematical structure.

Students construct an identity as learners in ways that enable productive engagement in their education and the associated academic community.
