Improving the Learning Achievement of Fifth Grade Students through Problem-based Learning with Environmental Perspective
This research is entitled " Improving the Learning Achievement of Fifth Grade Students through Problem-based Learning with Environmental Perspective." This research began because learning activities were carried out only listening, doing assignments and only focusing on books so that learning in class was less active. This causes a lack of interaction between teachers and students, or students and other students so that learning becomes less effective. This has an impact on the low mathematics learning achievement of fifth grade students. The purpose of this study was to find out how to improve mathematics learning achievement using an environmentally sound Problem Based Learning (PBL) model. The approach used in this research is Collaborative Classroom Action Research (CAR). This research was conducted in two cycles. Each cycle consists of the stages of planning, implementing, observing, and reflecting. There are two data used, quantitative data and qualitative data. Data collection techniques using observation and tests. The results of this study are that the application of the Problem Based Learning with an enviromental perspective model can improve the mathematics learning outcomes of fifth grade students with learning steps (1) Orientation of students to problems, (2) Organizing students to learn, (3) Guiding individual and group investigations, (4) Developing and presenting works, (5) Analyzing and evaluating problem-solving processes. The implications of this research are expected to assist teachers in choosing the application of appropriate learning models to improve student learning outcomes. The results showed that the application of a problem-based learning model with an environmental perspective could improve the mathematics learning achievement of fifth grade students with evidence of achieving more than 85% of students whose grades were above the KKM after 2 cycles of learning.
