Many scholars have struggled to improve techniques that boost performance of students. Among the techniques is the Collaborative learning. Collaborative learning is an umbrella term for a variety of educational approaches which involves joint intellectual effort by students, or students and teachers together. Usually, students are working in groups of two or more, mutually searching for understanding, solutions, or meanings, or creating a product. This approach matches with the philosophy of contemporary perspectives on learning and teaching aiming to promote higher achievement, more positive interpersonal relationships and greater psychological health, resulting in graduates being cooperative, caring, reflective, critical and creative (Yanhui Xia,2015). Collaborative learning Style activities vary widely, but most centers on students’ exploration or application of the course Module, not simply the teacher’s presentation or clarification of it. The students work together for better achievement of their group. A Problem Based Project investigation of two equivalent groups was designed one group is the experimental group which will include 30 Skyline University students who are taking the module Business Mathematics and the controlled group consisting of similar 30 Skyline university students who are taking business mathematics Modules using Minitab software besides to the two sample T-test for the two samples was used to analyze the data. After analyzing the results of both groups in this study we found out that collaborative learning approach is more effective than the individual learning style.
