Abstract
In order to improve the teaching quality of Algorithm Design and Analysis course, we reform the teaching methods according to student characteristics and other factors about the course. This work firstly proposed the mixed teaching methods based on heuristics, inquiry, discussion, and cases, then implemented the teaching organization forms such as hierarchical experiment and group work, and finally suggested diversified assessment methods to stimulate students’ interest in learning and improve their autonomous learning, innovative and problem-solving ability. The teaching results in recent years demonstrate that the reform has achieved positive learning effects, not only improving students’ scores, but also increasing the participation in computer competitions and improving the application ability of algorithms.
