In the Czech education system, solving quantitative physics tasks has a long tradition. Regrettably, physics teachers are not sufficiently trained to teach problem solving and, as a consequence, many students solve the tasks without deeper understanding of the physics context.

Therefore, the solving often turns into simple "mathematical manipulation" with formulas. It is important to minimize this strategy and teach students more appropriate approach towards the issue.

Students' difficulties in problem solving can be mitigated for example by developing some highly structured solution method. This contribution presents a project focused on developing teaching methods that concern the skills how to solve quantitative physical tasks and analyzing their potential impact in the context of the Czech education system.

Several specific teaching methods and practices will be identified based on the results of international research survey on this subject and these will be adapted to the conditions of teaching in the first year of Czech universities and at the secondary schools.
