Improvement of Students Mathematical Problem Solving Abilities Using Blended Learning Viewed From Students Initial Abilities

Rahmi Ramadhani, Siti Aisyah


The purpose of this study is to see an increase in students' mathematical problem solving abilities taught by using a blended learning model in terms of the initial ability of high school students. Blended learning is digital-based learning by using digital learning media as aids in learning. This learning is done as a form of implementation of Education 4.0-based learning which is the impact of the existence of the Industrial Revolution 4.0. This research uses a quasi-experimental type with pre-test post-test control design research design. The sampling technique was carried out using purposive sampling and obtained as many as 28 students who were in the experimental group (who were taught using blended learning models) and 25 students who were in the control group (who were taught using normal learning). The results of testing normality and homogeneity of data using Levenes' test and Kolmogorov-Smirnov analysis obtained the results that the data in both learning groups were normally distributed and homogeneous. Referring to the prerequisite test results, the hypothesis testing is performed using Two-Way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA Two Path). The results of hypothesis testing indicate that there is an increase in students 'mathematical problem solving abilities that are taught using blended learning models in terms of students' initial mathematical abilities. This result strengthens the evidence that the use of blended learning models has a significant effect in improving students' mathematical abilities and provides new learning experiences for students.
