Abstract

This study is aimed to describe the mathematical critical thinking skills of PGSD students with an open ended approach. Subjects in this study were student grade4. The method used in this study is a quasi-experimental design. Data analysis using independent sample t test and categorization based on aspects of critical thinking skills. The average score of the open-ended class is higher than the average score of the class with group discussion learning, that is 73,18> 66,72. It means the experimental class learning outcomes are higher than the control class. The critical thinking skills of open ended class is in high category, while group discussion class is in the middle category. The stages of recognize assumption, the mastery percentage of the experimental class is 88,27% while the control class is 75,50%. At the evaluate the argument stage, the experimental class is 74,49% while the control class is 53,50%. At the stage of draw conlussion, the percentage of the experimental class is 23,47% while the control class is 9%. Sig. 2 tailed in the t-test results is 0.041 <0.05 which means that using the open ended approach is more effective.
