A Framework for Problem-Based Learning: Teaching Mathematics with a Relational Problem-Based Pedagogy
Schettino, Carmel
Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, v10 n2 Article 12 Sep 2016
One recommendation for encouraging young women and other underrepresented students in their mathematical studies is to find instructional methods, such as problem-based learning (PBL), that allow them to feel included in the learning process. Using a more relationally centered pedagogy along with more inclusive instructional methods may be a way to foster an interest in studying mathematics in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. However, many mathematics teachers are at a loss in not only how to instruct with PBL methods but also how to create the environment that encourages optimal learning.
