Abstract

Curriculum 2013 demands physics teachers to use laboratory in supporting the teaching and learning process at school, through laboratory students can apply the theory of physics concretely. The purpose of this study is to find out the effectiveness of laboratory in physics subject at senior high schools in Banda Aceh. This study used descriptive quantitative approach with surveying method. The population of this study is all senior high schools in Banda Aceh and the sample is 6 schools, 140 students and 6 teachers and laboratory chief, the sample was chosen using random stratified disproportionate sampling technique which was categorized based on the school accreditation. The technique used in data collection was questionnaire and observation sheet. The data analysis was done using descriptive technique with percentage formula. The result shows that the effectiveness of the use of laboratory toward physics subject learning at senior highschools in Banda Aceh is in the category less effective (56,78%). The indicator percentage in input is 59,23 and in process is 57,67 with “enough” category, while the output is 53,43 with “less effective” category.

Abstract

The ability to solve problems is a vital part to be developed for students in the teaching and learning process. The objective of this research was to identify different stages of ability in solving physics problems regarding thinking styles and confidence level and the correlation between the two variables and the ability to solve physics problems. A quantitative method with the cross-sectional design was used in this research. All of the second-grade students in natural science program of State Senior High School 5 Banda Aceh ware the population members while 30 students ware chosen as the samples by using random sampling technique. A test measuring the ability to solve physics problem and a questionnaire measuring thinking style and confidence level of the students ware used as the research instruments. The data that had been collected ware then analyzed by using one way ANOVA test. The results indicated that there was a significant difference in the ability to solve physics problems regarding thinking style and confidence level of the students. Moreover, it was also found that there was a correlation between the two variables and the ability to solve the physics problem.
