Teaching Practices (Poster Only) – Analysis, synthesis, reflection, and discussion

Abstract

Research in the past decade has pointed to a number of benefits for using the Project Based Learning (PBL) Model, including significant positive effects on problem-solving skills, conceptual understanding, and attitudes to learning.This poster presentation will focus on the study that was carried out in 8 sections of Business Calculus (N=480) and in 2 sections of College Algebra (N=140). The results from this study show that teaching practices based on PBL Model had a positive influence on student learning and student attitude towards learning mathematics. Student performance results and impact on attitude and confidence will be presented. How to overcome some of the common problems when implementing PBL will be also discussed.
