In this article, the topic of "chemical principles in warmer pad" is used as an example to illustrate how problem-based learning (PBL) and case learning (CL) are used in the teaching of general chemistry. We take the advantages of PBL to arouse the studying interests of students in the casing learning atmosphere. Moreover, the teacher leads the discussion. By using these two teaching methods properly, students' active learning ability, the skills of analyzing and solving problems, as well as the comprehensive practical ability can be improved.

Key words: Problem-based learning, Case learning, General chemistry, Teaching case
