The Effect of Problem-Based Learning Instruction Activities in Linear Equations on Problem Solving Ability Analytical Thinking and Reasoning

Abstract

The purposes of this research were to compare the before and after Problem Solving Ability Analytical Thinking and Reasoning Ability of Mathayomsuksa 1 students by using method of Problem-Based Learning Instruction with a statistic criterion. The subjects of this study were 30 Mathayomsuksa 1 students in the second semester of 2018 academic year from Srinakharinwirot University Prasarnmit Demonstration School Secondary. They were selected by using cluster random sampling technique. The experiment lasted for 10 periods. The One-Group pretest-posttest design was used for this study. The instruments were the Problem-Based Learning plans in word problems of Linear Equations in One Variable. The data were analyzed by using t-test for dependent samples and t-test for one sample. The findings were as follows:
1. The mathematics learning achievement of problem-solving ability for Mathayomsuksa 1 students after being taught by using Problem-Based Learning Instruction activities in Linear Equations in One Variable were higher than that before being taught and statistically higher than the 70% criterion at the .01 level of significance.
2. The mathematics analytical thinking and reasoning ability for Mathayomsuksa 1 students after being taught by using Problem-Based Learning Instruction activities in Linear Equations in One Variable were higher than that before being taught and statistically higher than the 70% criterion at the .01 level of significance.
