The study aims to help students learn efficiently, summarize systematically, and apply knowledge comprehensively regarding the critical aspects of free radical polymerization. A comprehensive problem was proposed to develop their knowledge-comprehensive-application ability, questioning ability, problem-solving skills, critical thinking, and literature consulting awareness. The comprehensive problem, covering all the important aspects of free radical polymerization, was designed accordingly and assigned as team homework. Herein, a new form of problems in polymer chemistry is being developed, the function of problems in polymer chemistry is expanded, students' minds are being opened, and satisfactory results are being achieved.

Key words: Polymer chemistry, Free radical polymerization, Comprehensive problem, Team homework, Form Innovation, Function expansion
