Abstract

This research was aimed at finding out the effectiveness of experiential learning-based teaching material in Mathematics on the Mathematics cognitive ability of the fifth-grade student in elementary school. This research used quasi-experimental design involving two sample groups: experiment and control group. The sampling technique in this research used simple random sampling. The subject of this research was 54 students from the fifth-grade elementary school in Gunungpati Sub-district in the academic year 2017/2018. This study involved 28 students of the fifth-grade elementary school Nongkosawit 02 as the experimental group and 26 students of the fifth-grade elementary school Sadeng 03 as the control group. The instrument used in this research was multiple choice test consisting of 30 questions. The test was used to obtain pretest and posttest score.The data analysis in this research used T-independent test to examine the hypothesis. The result of the study shows the significance level of 0.000 is less than α = 0.05 which means that there is different cognitive ability between the experimental and control group. Thus, the use of experiential learning-based teaching material in Mathematics is effective to improve the Mathematics cognitive ability of the fifth-grade student in elementary school.

Abstract

Based on PISA assessment result in 2015 on science; Indonesia ranks 69 out of 79 countries. Meanwhile, in science literacy, Indonesia ranks 62 out of 69 countries that are evaluated. That assessment result shows that science achievement and science literacy ability of Indonesian students are low. One of some factors that influences it is the selection of learning resource that does not explain science concept for students. This research is conducted to know the influence of the use of science literacy-based teaching material based on the improvement of fourth grade students’ science achievement. This research is a quantitative research that uses an experimental method. This research is conducted at two elementary schools in Gunungpati, Semarang. The subjects of this research are 46 fourth grade students. The data were collected by using pre-test and post-test to know the students’ score. This research shows that pre-test mean score is 39.935 and the post-test 1 mean score is 66.891. Meanwhile, t-tests show significance 0.000 (<0.05) meaning that there is the difference between pre-test and post-test. Therefore, there is influence on the use of science literacy-based teaching material based on fourth grade students’ science achievement.
