RESEARCH ON THE APPLICATION OF PROBLEM-BASED TEACHING IN MATHEMATICS EDUCATION
Since we entered the new century, development of science and society has raised up demand for educational level, especially for mathematics education. However, students still have low interests in mathematics learning, and mathematics-teaching models are unsatisfied. It is a top priority to improve students’ interest in mathematics. This paper studies problem-teaching model introduces the idea, features, developing stages and mainstream forms of problem-based teaching. Based on the features of problem-based teaching model, this paper carries out a research on students and teachers of a middle high school in Beijing. Using questionnaire, comparative analysis and mathematical modeling and computation, this paper investigates the application of problem-based teaching in mathematics teaching. Results show that such teaching model can greatly improve students’ performance in classroom, their grades, and their interests in mathematics. This paper gives suggestions to teachers on how to choose teaching methods, improve students’ interests in learning and their grades.
