Problem-Based Learning

PBL requires a lot of planning up front and that can require some guidance. Once the students begin to work on the problem, the teacher’s time is spent interacting with the students and facilitating learning, creating a more enjoyable and productive work environment for the students and the teacher. Use the following step-by-step process for designing a PBL assignment and implementing PBL in your math classroom through AISLM.

Unit 3. PBL Increase Student Engagement


Course Progress

Problem-based learning requires students to actively engage with math concepts. Wurdinger
and Qureshi (2015) stated that students are more engaged in their learning when they are creating
and completing projects. Engaging students in relevant, real-world projects motivates and
inspires them to learn. Even students who are not usually engaged in mathematics will be
motivated to solve mathematical problems that lead to solutions in PBL.
