Mathematics lessons are rather important since the analytical approach is the main issue in engineering. But industrial vocational highschool students perceive maths as a hard lesson with too many equations thus it influence their success and their approach towards maths. In order to change studentsí perception we need to have educational strategies where the students will be responsible for their learning from real life skills. For this reason, in the last years student centered and learning based constructive educational approaches are being used. Problem-based learning, being one of these approaches, is used in mathematics lesson in 9th grade Industrial Vocational High School. In the end of this study, students conception of problem-based learning is gathered from a survey of 5 open-ended questions asked in student's view or PBL questionnaire form and positive and negative results of problem- based learning is set forth.
