Abstract Previous research had discovered that students are trained to develop critical thinking, are adaptable to change, able to work independently, demonstrate effective communication skills and become continual learners through problem-based learning (PBL). A quasi experimental study was conducted to investigate the effects of PBL on mathematics performance, measure of instructional efficiency and perceived advantages or disadvantages of the approach. The experimental group was exposed to… Expand
