Abstract

This research aimed to ascertain the application of Problem Based Learn­ing model towards student’s creative thinking skill in Biology at student of X grade of SMA Negeri 2 Surakarta in academic year 2011/2012.

This research was a quasi experiment research. The research was designed using posttest only control group design using Problem Based Learning as model towards the experi­mental group, as compared to the conventional model. The conventional model was com­plemented with discussion, classical course and question-answer method. The population of this research was all of X degree students at SMA Negeri 2 Surakarta in academic year 2011/2012. The sample of this research was taken using cluster random sampling. The data was collected by using essays test, document and through observation. The stated hypotheses was tested using t-test.

The conclusion of this research showed that the application of Problem Based Learning model has given significant effect towards student’s creative thinking skill in Biology at student of X grade of SMA Negeri 2 Surakarta in academic year 2011/2012.
