Implementation of Problem Based Learning to Improve the Activity of Class V Students in Mathematics Learning in Elementary School
Keywords:Mathematics, Student Activity, Problem Based Learning
This research is carried out in the context of SD mathematics learning activities that are still teachers centered. Teachers tend to give material explanations and then students are trained so that students become passive. Mathematical learning requires a learning model that supports the active involvement of students in order to optimal learning success. The aim of this study is to know the improvement of student activity through the application of the Problem Based Learning model. This collaborative class action research uses a Kemmis and Mc Taggart model consisting of planning, action, observation and reflection. The subjects in this study were 28 elementary school students. Data collected using observation sheets, interviews and documentation. The data analysis techniques used are descriptive quantitative and qualitative. The results of the study showed an increase in student activity in the pre-cycle reached 51% (low category), in cycle I reached 71% (medium category), and in the cycle II increased to 87% (high category). Thus, it can be concluded that the implementation of the Problem Based Learning model can improve the activity of V elementary school students because they have achieved the presentation of their indicators of success.
