Abstract

This research aim to the understanding of the basic physics concepts of pre-service physics teacher that shows the conceptual difficulties of Basic Physics concept. This finding is the fact in determining alternative solution to support the achievement of more optimal learning outcomes, one of which is the development of Pre-Class Tutorial (PCT). The method used is a quasi-experimental method. A total of three grade student who took the Basic Physics I course in the Physics Education Study Program were involved to collect research data. The research instrument used in the form of PCT to get a description of students' thought processes on the concepts of Physics and the comprehension test of the concept of system of particle and Momentum to determine the understanding of Basic Physics concepts. The results showed that the using of PCT helped students construct concepts of physics and improve understanding of prospective physics teacher concepts.
