The problem that arises during classroom learning is the low collaboration skills of students. Collaboration skills in students are accustomed to working in groups, division of tasks, arguing in groups, and dependence on friends during the learning process in class. This is because the teacher is only guided by companion books, teacher books and student books without involving the surrounding environment or concrete objects. The purpose of this research is to analyze the impact of problem based learning to improve collaboration skills in mathematics. The model used in the core research of Stringer E.T. Stringer's research is in the form of a cycle consisting of three aspects, namely look, think, and act. This data collection technique uses observation in grade 2 SD Negeri Bantul district. The research instrument is an observation sheet that is used, in which there are points to be assessed in collaborative activities during the learning process. The analysis technique used is quantitative and qualitative analysis. The results of the study showed that the average collaboration between students in cycles I and II increased by 6.77. The average collaboration between students in cycle I was initially at 82.25, then increased in cycle II, namely 89.02. The PBL model can increase students' collaboration skills. The implications of this research are that teachers are expected to be able to improve their ability to design PBL learning, so that they can improve students' collaboration skills.
