Abstract

The study was aimed at collecting information of students' problem-solving abilities by using Problem Based Learning model. The study used experimental method with a quantitative approach. Data was processed and analyzed using quantitative statistics served by SPSS 16.0. Statistical analysis was carried out by pretest and posttest scoring, calculating means and standard deviations, measuring normality and homogeneity of pretest data sets as prerequisite for comparing two means, as well as scaling N-gain and measuring the differences, and examining the interactions between learning factors of the students for their problem solving abilities. The study was conducted from April to November 2018 at SMP 1 Unggul Sukamakmur and Serambi Mekkah University. The results showed that: 1) the problem solving abilities of students after Jigsaw technique of cooperative learning is better than those with common (conventional) learning technique in comparison toward overall students; 2) the problem solving abilities of students after Problem Based Learning method is better than those with common (conventional) method in comparison toward student’s groups; and 3) interactions presented between the application of both learning methods and grouping students for their problem solving abilities as of differentiation of results yielding from each groups toward the abilities.
