Abstract

Problem-based learning takes a well-deserved place in the educational programs of leading universities in the world. Meanwhile it is known that this approach has been well developed for training students of economy and medicine. There are certain difficulties in setting targets as well as in teaching methods in basic technical subjects, in particular in the mathematical courses. The chapter presents an analysis of the peculiar features of problem-based learning in a research university for basic courses of the first two years of study. The discipline “Numerical Methods and Mathematical Modeling” is given as an example of the application of this approach. The main topics are proposed and lesson plans are provided. The information support of the courses is carried out in the learning management systems. The elements of this approach have been put into practice of training course and it was shown that the material was achieved much better.
