The purpose of this research is to determine the level of students' critical thinking. The benefit of this research is to obtain test results related to students' critical thinking abilities. The methodology in this study used a survey method involving 75 students who were taken randomly. The instrument used is in the form of critical thinking questions which are distributed via gform. The data obtained was analyzed using SPSS. Based on the survey results it is known that the number of subjects is 75 respondents consisting of 48 women and 27 men. Based on the survey results, it is also known that the average student's critical thinking skills are in the good category with a score that can be explained in detail, namely giving simple explanations (8.0), building basic skills (7.9), making inferences (7.8). provide further explanation (7.6) and set strategies and techniques in solving science questions (7.9). In conclusion, the construct that has the highest average value is to provide a simple explanation with an average value of 8.0 and the lowest is to provide a further explanation of 7.6. The recommendation from this study is that students' critical thinking skills still need to be improved and teachers can use the instruments that have been used.</p> 2023-11-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Adisti Yuliastrin, Rian Vebrianto, Muhammad Fiqri Profile of Basic and Integrated Science Process Skills in Science Learning at Madrasah Ibtidaiyah Negeri 2023-12-01T16:36:21+00:00 Laila Farida Suryajaya Suryajaya Suyidno Suyidno <p>Science process skills underlie every student's activity in learning science at school and its application in technology and problem-solving. However, these skills are not trained enough in the Madrasah Ibtidaiyah Negeri (MIN). Therefore, the purpose of this study was to describe the profile of basic and integrated science process skills in MIN students. This research is a quantitative and qualitative descriptive study, where 79 students from 4 MINs in Hulu Sungai Utara were involved in working on a science process skills test instrument adapted from Suja (2010). The results showed the achievement of students' basic science process skills including measuring, questioning, communication, predicting, classifying, inferring, and observation; as well as the achievement of integrated science process skills including formulating hypotheses, planning experiments, interpreting data, and applying concepts with the lowest being 5.3% (hypothesizing) and the highest being 51.8% (measuring). Therefore; The profile of students' basic and integrated science process skills is still not good. Considering scientific process skills as the basic foundation in learning science, educators need to cultivate these skills in learning scientific concepts and their application in solving real life problems.</p> 2023-11-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Laila Farida, Suryajaya Suryajaya, Suyidno Suyidno The Analysis of Misconceptions in Simple Airplane Material for 8th Grade Students in SMP Muhammadiyah 3 Gorontalo 2023-12-04T04:30:12+00:00 Putri Fahrunissa Trisnawaty Junus Buhungo Masrid Pikoli <p>This study aims to (1) determine students' conception maps in simple machine material (2) analyze students' misconceptions in simple machine material. This research is a descriptive research. The research subjects were class VIII of SMP Muhamadiyah 3 Gorontalo City with a sample size of 25 students. The/research data were obtained from students' answers through a three-level multiple-choice diagnostic test (Three Tier Multiple Choice) and processed based on the pattern of student answers grouped into categories of understanding the concept, misconception 1, misconception 2, misconception 3 and not understanding the concept. The results showed that category 1 misconception had a percentage of 23%, misconception 2 had a percentage of 17%, and misconception 3 had a percentage of 25%.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2023-11-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Putri Fahrunissa, Trisnawaty Junus Buhungo, Masrid Pikoli The Potential Bryophyta Diversity On Riverside Susup As Science Teaching Materials For SMP 2023-12-04T05:17:18+00:00 Jefri Ronggo Waskito Bhakti Karyadi Sutarno Deni Parlindungan Rendi Zulni Ekaputri Indra Sakti Mellyta Uliyandari <p>The purpose of this study was to determine the diversity of bryophyta on the riverside Susup as learning material in the form of Learning Unit Books (BUP). The research method used is Research and Development which is limited to needs analysis and BUP design. Moss plant diversity samples were obtained using a purposive sampling technique. Found 10 families, 13 types of species and 80 total bryophyta colonies on the banks of the river. The diversity index (H') ranges from 1.474 - 1.911 which includes the medium category, the evenness index (E) ranges from 0.822 - 0.940 which includes the high category and the dominance index (C) ranges from 0.1550 - 0.3056 which includes the low category. These findings are then used as teaching materials for designing BUP for SMP.</p> 2023-11-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Jefri Ronggo Waskito, Bakti Karyadi, Sutarno Sutarno, Deni Parlindungan, Rendi Zulni Ekaputri, Indra Sakti, Mellyta Uliandari The Description of Students’ Creativity and Motivation in Physics: Introducing Madurese Local Wisdom “Karapan Sapi” as Ethnophysics Learning Media 2023-12-04T04:33:25+00:00 Fara Raditya Mirsa Ahla Nurul Islamiyah Iqbal Ainur Rizki Aulia Dwi Saputri Riski Ramadani Muhammad Habibulloh <p>Creative thinking skills are one of the important abilities in the 21st century because they play an important role for individuals in approaching the solution of daily life problems. The importance of creativity in education demands an effort to foster this skill in various learning activities. However, teachers tend to still not apply learning activities that can train creativity by design. Ethnoscience-based learning based on the local wisdom of Madura <em>karapan sapi</em> can be an alternative solution in overcoming these problems. Therefore, this research aims to describe students’ creativity and motivation as well as explore the potential of <em>karapan sapi</em> as a physics learning media. The research design used was mixed-method exploratory with quantitative methods of one-shot case study and survey to 37 students of SMAN 3 Sidoarjo combined with interviews and observations to the owner of the bull race. The results showed that students still have a creativity score of 9.51 or at low criteria. Meanwhile, more than 75% of students claimed to lack motivation to learn physics. To remediate this, the application of cow race tradition in physics learning makes students closer and feel more contextualized in understanding physics concepts in order to increase their creativity and motivation.</p> 2023-11-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Fara Raditya Mirsa, Ahla Nurul Islamiyah, Iqbal Ainur Rizki, Aulia Dwi Saputri, Riski Ramadani, Muhammad Habibulloh
