Texan Section


This page is devoted to the teaching method developed and practiced by Robert Lee Moore at the University of Texas from 1920-1969. This method is now known as the "Moore method" or the "Texas method" and the following links are in one way or another related to Dr. Moore and his methods. At least two colleagues of Moore's, Hubert Stanley Wall and Hyman Joseph Ettlinger, worked closely with Moore during much of this period.


Anecdotes -- These Texan "Believe It or Not!" stories were related to me over the years and concern events on the 3rd floor of Benedict Hall at UT during Moore's reign.

A Gentler Discovery Method -- An article I wrote about the method that appeared in College Teaching. See many more articles at the link below to the Legacy of R. L. Moore Project.

The Journal of Inquiry-Based Learning in Mathematics is devoted to publishing materials that adhere to discovery-based, inquiry-based, Montessori, modified-Moore, Socratic, and student-centered pedagogies.

Legacy of R. L. Moore Project -- The best site to learn about Moore method teaching, as well as the history, and life of R. L. Moore.

My personal connection to the Texas Method.
