Inquiry method in math

In Mathematics, I feel that the inquiry method of teaching is a very useful way to teach math. I feel that the best way to learn math is to discover what your learning through problem solving and letting the students get hands on with the problem. There are a lot of situations in math that you just have to lecture to the students about theorems and axioms. However, there are a lot of situations where you can come up with real life situation to represent some of the theorems we are teaching our students. Yeah, it will take more time to guide the students into discovering the theorems on their own, but I feel the lesson will become more meaningful and will stick in the students head better than if we just lectured the students.
