Mathematics is a subject that studied all participants study from elementary school to college. One of the most important skills a student should possess is the ability to solve mathematical problems. Learning mathematics is very useful in daily life. This study aims to improve the understanding of mathematics to solve the question of perimeter and area of square and rectangle in elementary school by applying the problem-based learning model. The research was conducted in an elementary school in Yogyakarta. The subjects in this research were 28 students in class IV A. The research method used is Classroom Action Research Collaborative, which uses Kemmis and Mc Taggart's model and consists of planning, action, observation, and reflection. The data analysis techniques used by the researchers are quantitative descriptive and qualitative descriptive. The results of the research show that the skills of solving the two-dimensional question story were improved. Pre-cycle scored 40% in the deficient category, Cycle I scored 63,75% in the sufficient category, and Cycle II scored 84,286% in the good category. Based on the results, it can be concluded that mathematical understanding of solving two-dimensional questions can be improved by using the problem-based learning model.
