Abstract


A learning program not only aims to make students understand and master what and how things happen, but also provide an understanding of why it happened. Thus, a lesson that emphasizes problem-solving becomes very important to teach. One form of learning that emphasizes the problem solving is to apply systematic approach to problem solving. This is a guide to perform an action that serves to assist a person in solving a problem. Problem solving steps based on systematic approach to problem solving consists of four stages, namely problem analysis, problem solving process planning, calculation operations, and checking answers and interpretation of results. This study is a classroom action research that aims to see the inceasing of student learning outcomes after applied systematic approach to problem solving. The subject of this research is 25 students of class VIIIA MTs Salafiyah Syafi'iyah Tebuireng Jombang. Instruments in this study is a matter of student learning outcomes on the material wake up space. This research was conducted in two cycles because in the second cycle has reached the indicator of success that students achieve the minimal clarity of at least 75%. The results showed that student learning outcomes in the first cycle reached 36% classical completeness, and in the second cycle of classical completeness of 84%. This shows that the application of systematic approach to problem solving can increase student learning outcomes.
