SILVER SPRING, MD, DECEMBER 14, 2010. Mathematics teacher Melanie Wilson, right hand, helps 8th-grader Vanessa Kidd, 13, lower hand, to understand algebra during math class at Spring International Middle School in Silverspring, MD. Montgomery County has pushed its elementary and middle school students harder and harder in math, so much so that more than half of fifth graders are studying sixth grade math. But the high-flying county has dialed it back after parents, students and teachers complained it was too much, too fast.(Photo by ASTRID RIECKEN For The Washington Post via Getty Images)


Using a case based approach engages students in discussion of specific situations, typically real world examples. This method is learner-centred, and involves sintense interaction between the participants. Case- based learning focuses on the building of knowledge and the group works together to examine the case. The students collaboratively address problems from a perspective that requires analysis. Much of the case-based learning involves learners striving to resolve questions that have no single right answer. With case-based teaching, students develop skills in analytical thinking and rective judgement by reading and discussing complex, real-life scenarios.
