The authors present a grade 5 mathematics lesson that resulted from a grant-funded teacher professional development experience, which promoted inquiry learning approaches such as problem-based, project-based, place-based learning, and the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. A local industry was incorporated into the lesson to provide a real-world context. Design decisions and a description of how technology was utilized in the lesson are provided. Reflections from the teachers delivering the lesson and recommendations for adaptations for other contexts are included.
