Abstract

The purpose of this study is to determine the results of the application of the PhET Simulations media in understanding light matter while learning physics. The research made use of a randomized pretest and posttest control group design. The population of the study comprises of 67th grade classes of Serang SMA. The research sample was made up of one experimental and control class each. The obtained results showed that the application of PhET Simulations on light material when learning the light concept in physics produced an N-gain value that is 37% higher than using direct learning techniques. Hence, it can be concluded that the use of phet simulation software-based learning media, improves students' conceptual abilities in learning the concept of light material
