Abstract
Project-based learning (PBL) is an instructional strategy that allows students the autonomy to learn, explore and investigate throughout the learning process by means of projects. Many educators have seen the need for such a strategy in the classroom as a remedy for motivating students, showing relevance of studentís education to everyday life, preparing students for college and the work force, and the dire need for students to develop critical thinking skills to encourage future success.

In my thesis I will define project-based learning, discuss its characteristics, compare PBL to traditional teaching methods and reflect on my experiences with project-based learning in the classroom. I will also show how a traditional math problem can become more interesting and applicable to students if project-based elements are incorporated.
