In the course of structural chemistry, "a particle in a one-dimensional box" is an important content, because it contains many concepts, involves a wide range of knowledge, and is highly comprehensive. Based on the "problem-based learning", a series of problems were designed on solving the Schrödinger equation and the result discussion. Starting from asking the questions, students are guided to organically connect the knowledge points by analyzing and solving problems, and to get an in-depth understanding of the basic principles of quantum mechanics. A good teaching effect has been achieved.

Key words: Structural chemistry, Problem-based learning, One-dimensional
