Increasing Motivation to Learn Mathematics for Class IV Students Using a Learning Based Learning Model. This study aims to increase the learning motivation of fourth grade elementary school students in mathematics through a problem-based learning model. This type of research is Collaborative Classroom Action Research (PKK). The hypothesis in this study is that the application of the problem-based learning model can increase learning motivation and understanding in mathematics for fourth grade elementary school students. The subjects of this study were 28 students of grade IV elementary school . This research was conducted in 2 cycles. Each cycle consists of 2 meetings. The methods used in data collection are observation/observation, questionnaires, tests, interviews and documentation. The results of the study show that there is a significant influence on the learning motivation of students who use the PBL model rather than the conventional model. This can be seen from the average student motivation using the PBL model in the initial data collection showed a pre-cycle of 25%, an increase in the first cycle of 71.42 % , in the second cycle of 89.28%. That means there is an effect of using the PBL model on students' learning motivation in mathematics in grade 4 elementary school students.
