    The paper presents the teaching technique to develop university student creativity in mathematics classes. The technique lies in the resource-based classes when students gradually accumulate knowledge in several subjects, and then, in the resource-based interaction, in a group, they solve career-related assignments. We tested the approach by comparison testing of experimental and baseline groups of students. We had decided that assignments should meet the requirements including the following: a plot should be close to real phenomena from future careers of students, problem statements should very well to make students be not only able to solve the problem, but also make up their new problem, in the process of which they develop their creativity. In the experimental group, students started feeling better familiar with career-related assignments, desired to obtain as much useful information as possible from studies of the real process, unlike baseline group students. The introduction of resource-based classes in the learning process results in a visibly higher interest in career-related assignments and better communicability in the student community (small groups).
