The purpose of this research was to investigate the effect of self-explanation prompting to students’ germane load while studying mathematics in the multivariable calculus course. This research employed a quasi-experimental method with matching-only posttest-only control group design. The subject of the research consists of 72 first-year mathematics education undergraduate students. The results indicated that there was no significant difference in students’ germane load between students who implemented worked-example with self-explanation prompting and students who implemented worked-example without self-explanation prompting. However, it was revealed that the students' germane load was categorized high in both classes. It indicates that the worked-example method could foster students' germane load. Nonetheless, these results cannot be evidence that self-explanation prompting is capable to foster students' germane load. However, there is an association between germane load and learning objectives. When students achieve the learning objectives, then its learning method is able to foster the germane load. To assess the learning objectives, the posttest was arranged. The results stated that students who implemented the worked-example method with self-explanation prompting had better test scores than students who implemented the worked-example method without self-explanation prompting. This result was sufficient to provide evidence that the use of worked-example with self-explanation prompting could foster students’ germane load students in the multivariable calculus course.Keywords: Germane load, Worked-example, Self-explanation prompting

Abstract: Entrepreneurial education in school has long been an effort by authorities in improving participation among school leavers in entrepreneurship. Still, there are clear obstacle in making this a reality. Thus this conceptual paper will discuss the obstacles and solutions towards of making entrepreneurial education a success. Obstacles that will be discussed are such as the lack of knowledge of entrepreneurship among teachers and the obsolete methods of teaching and learning currently practiced. Several solutions to the obstacles will be addressed are such as new pedagogical approaches such as games and simulations. Plus, solutions from the industry itself is put forward with activities such as engagement and attachment being highlighted. Therefore a model framework has been develop form the combination of elements from past theories and models which are Critical Experiential Incidence Model by Krueger(2007), Constructivism Theory by Vygotsky (1978) and Theory of Planned Behavior by Ajzen (1991). Keywords: Entrepreneurial Education, Entrepreneurial Intention, Teacher’s Knowledge, Pedagogy
The purpose of this study is to identify the involvement in Tunas Niaga activities and the entrepreneurial attitude among secondary school. The involvement of entrepreneurial activity among students is an important component of forming entrepreneurial attitudes. However, entrepreneurial activity is less favored by high school students. Most high school students perceive entrepreneurship, tediousness and do not guarantee future lives during economic problems.Lacking the problem, a study was conducted to examine the level of involvement of entrepreneurial activity and entrepreneurial behavior. The study uses survey method with questionnaire as the first instrument. The instruments is adapted from Khalina Khalid (1991) to construct the basic information of entrepreneurship activities as well as the construct of entrepreneurial attitude adapted from Ravi and Aishah Buang's instrument (2015) psychometric index of entrepreneurship.The sample of the study consists of 30 secondary school students taken randomly involving entrepreneurship activities such as Tunas Niaga.The results of the analysis of entrepreneurial entrepreneurship activity confirmed two constructs involving entrepreneurial activity with Cronbach Alpha's reliability and reliability value of .714. The dimensions of entrepreneurship showed that Cronbach Alpha .900. The min test results show the level of involvement of moderate entrepreneurship activities. Entrepreneurship attitude among respondents shows positive towards entrepreneurship activity.
This study is aimed to derive a description of learning result improvement on salt hydrolysis material by implementing POE (Predict, Observe, Explain) learning model on the students of grade XI at SMA Negeri 7 Palu. This study was a pre-experimental within Static Group Comparison design. Sampling was carried out in a simple random with class XI MIA 1 as the experiment class and XI MIA 5 as the replication class. The instruments used in this study divided into 3 competencies, the affective competency using an observation sheet, the psychomotor competency using self-assessment questionnaire and the cognitive competency using a final test. Statistical inferential analysis using t-test one right side by requiring normal and homogeneous data. The average psychmotor competency of students in the XI MIA 1 is 81, whilst for replication class is 79. The average cognitive competency of students in XI MIA 1 is 77 with deviation standard of 10.55, whilst for replication class is 75 with standard deviation of 12.98. The result of hypothesis test using t-test one right side is tcalculated> ttable or 3.32> 1.71, whilst for replication class is 1.85>1.72, so H0 was rejected. This result concludes that the implementation of POE learning model in Grade XI students at SMA Negeri 7 Palu improves learning achievement on salt hydrolysis material to be more than competency minimum standard of 70.

Extracurricular services are regarded as essential services in school system. Studies suggest that access to the services lead to students’ academic success. Literature shows that the use of qualitative approach to investigate extracurricular services is limited. In view of the foregoing, this study examined the perceived influence of extracurricular services on students’ academic achievement in secondary schools. Twenty (20) principals were selected from the three senatorial districts of Kwara State using stratified, purposive and convenience sampling techniques. Instruments used include interview and observation methods to collect relevant data from the participants. Specifically, observation method was used to complement findings from interview. Our findings reveal that extracurricular services influenced students’ academic achievement. Also, our findings revealed that inadequate availability of extracurricular facilities and personnel are the factors militating against effective provision of extracurricular services. The study recommends that adequate extracurricular facilities (football pitch, volleyball court, hall for social activities, etc.) should be available in schools. Lastly, adequate extracurricular services personnel should be deployed to schools to ensure active participation of students in various activities.
Problem-solving is one of the century skills 21 and are included in the 2013 curriculum. Students with low problem-solving abilities will have difficulty completing math problems that require high-level thinking. Learning media that does not contain problem-solving skills will hinder the achievement of student competence. This research has two objectives. The first objective is to analyze the needs of learning media that are in accordance with student characteristics, curriculum, learning models and teacher readiness. The second objective is to design discovery learning based learning media to improve students' problem-solving abilities. This research uses design research method with type of development studies. The research subjects consisted of teachers and students. Data collection instruments used interview guidelines, observation guidelines, and questionnaires. Interview guides to get information from teachers and students regarding the readiness of teachers in applying the 2013 curriculum and learning difficulties in mathematics. Observation guidelines are used to obtain information about student learning characteristics. The questionnaire is used to get the needs of mathematics learning media. The data analyzed using qualitative descriptive. Research provides several results. First, most students consider learning less attractive. Second, the 2013 curriculum cannot be fully implemented in the classroom. Third, discovery learning models can improve problem-solving skills. Fourth, the design of discovery learning based learning media. This study concludes that discovery learning based media to improve problem-solving skills need to be developed.
