Abstract: The paper presents a problem solving teaching method that uses personal computer based calculation software to introduce the practical use of engineering theories. The method permits students to study parameter and variables effects of an engineering case without writing complicated computer programs. The students enhance problem-solving abilities with the minimum requirements of programming skills as the course proceeds. The use of general purpose mathematical software GPMS as a teaching aid tool provides high flexibility for educators. Good handling of the built-in functions of GPMS minimizes the vigorous and labor systemic manual solution of equations. The paper presents the experience gained in conducting energy conversion course at ASU department of engineering with interactively integrating GPMS within the computer laboratory environment.
