The result of t-test in the experimental class reveals that the average score of pretest is 51.45, while in the posttest is 87.90, so the experimental group has an improvement of 26%. It is obtained tvalue is higher than ttable (2.917 > 2.000). The achievement of students activity in the experimental class improves, with the average score of observations that reaches very well criteria. The conclusion of this research is the problem-based learning model has an effect on the creative thinking skill and the students activity.
