It is a difficult field to learn element chemistry for students in inorganic chemistry course. In this paper, the authors present the application of PBL methodology in inorganic element chemistry teaching, based on the characteristics of element chemistry. The problem setting, the effects in implementation process, the evaluation and the multimedia application are discussed. The results show that this teaching methodology can improve the learning ability for the students, enhance their initiative and enthusiasm, and therefore increase the teaching quality.

Key words: PBL methodology, Inorganic chemistry, Element chemistry
