PENGARUH MODELPROBLEM BASED LEARNING DAN COOPERATIVE LEARNING TIPE THINK PAIR SHARE TERHADAP PRESTASI BELAJAR IPA DITINJAU DARI MINAT SISWA KELAS V SD KECAMATAN BULUKERTO TAHUN PELAJARAN 2012/2013
The purpose of this study was to investigate: (1) WhetherÂ Â Â use ofÂ Â model Problem Based Learning, andÂ Think Pair Share method have positive correlationÂ towards the students' learning outcomes of of Natural Sciences, (2) whether students' different levels of interest (high, medium, and low interest) affects the learning outcomes , (3) whether there is a positive corelationÂ Â between Â Problem Based Learning and Â Think Pair Share,Â students' interest, and of the learning outcomes of Natural Science.
The method used in this research was experimental research. The populationsÂ in this study wereÂ all elementary school students inÂ Bulukerto District, Wonogiri Regency, whereasÂ the sub-populationsÂ were the fifth grade students in Bulukerto District Elementary SchoolÂ academic year 2012/2013. The sample of the research was collected by usingÂ multistage cluster random sampling. Questionnaires were used to investigate the students' interest, while test was used to measure students' learning outcomes . The data was analyzed by using two-way analysis method..
Based on those results, it can be concluded that: (1) There isÂ a positive effect of using the models Problem Based Learning and Coperative type Think Pair Share the Natural Sciences towards the students' learningÂ outcomes (F count> F table or 15,48> 4.07), (2) Students' different levels of interest (low, medium, and high interest) affect the learning outcomes of Natural ScienceÂ (F count > F table or 17,7281>3,21), (3) There is not positive correlation between Â Problem Based Learning and Cooperative learning types Think Pair Share,Â students' interest, and students'Â learning outcomes of Natural Sciences (F count > F table or 2,36<3,21).
Based on theÂ study, it is expected that teachers will able to implement the most suitable method in the learning process. . Teachers should work hard to increase students' interest, because the learning method and student interest will affect the learning outcomes.
