Increasing Activeness and Learning Outcomes with the Problem Based Learning Model for Class III Elementary Schools
Keywords:learning outcomes, active learning, problem based learning
This research is motivated by the lack of student activity in learning activities. Teachers have not provided student-centered learning, used the lecture method, and have not used interesting learning media. The purpose of this study was to increase the activity and learning outcomes of Mathematics for third grade elementary school students using the Problem Based Learning model. This type of research is classroom action research with the Kemmis and Taggart models whose stages consist of planning, implementing, observing, and reflecting. The subjects in this study were 25 class III elementary school students. Collection techniques using observation, interviews, and documentation. Data analysis techniques using descriptive quantitative and qualitative. The results of the study showed that students' active learning in cycle I was 77.60% and cycle II was 90.90%. While the learning outcomes of students in cycle I was 89.32%, cycle II was 91%. Thus, it can be concluded that learning with the Problem Based Learning model can increase the activity and learning outcomes of students in Mathematics.
