This research was survey research involving 64 students of class VIII from two classes at Junior High School 5 Gresik who has just finished studying the Human Respiratory System. Data collection techniques through a test results, interviews, and document analysis includes analysis of science textbooks and student notebooks. The results showed that there were students' misconceptions about the Human Respiratory System consisted of the concepts of respiratory volume, respiratory mechanism, respiratory disorders, respiratory frequency, and respiratory organs. The research concluded that there were misconceptions in the Human Respiratory System with a low category. This was evidenced by the characteristics of various misconceptions with diverse characteristics so that it can be known that the cause of students' misconceptions themselves were the result of incomplete or incorrect reasoning.</span></p> Aisya Muawana, Erman Erman ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://ejournal.unesa.ac.id/index.php/pensa/article/view/46235 Tue, 31 Jan 2023 00:00:00 +0000 MENINGKATKAN KEMAMPUAN BERPIKIR ILMIAH PESERTA DIDIK KELAS VIII MELALUI PEMBELAJARAN BERBASIS MASALAH MATERI ZAT ADITIF https://ejournal.unesa.ac.id/index.php/pensa/article/view/46446 <p>This research aimed to describe the improvement of students' scientific thinking skills on additive material using problem-based learning model implemented in one of public Junior High Schools in Surabaya. This research design used one-group pretest-posttest. This research involved 36 students of class VIII. This research's data collection methods included observation, tests, and questionnaires. The results showed that the implementation of problem-based learning got the average result from two meetings at 94.5% (very good). The average normalized gain for all students in the medium category. The average normalized gain of students in each sub-indicator of scientific thinking ability, namely: inquiry and analysis, increased in the high category, while inference and argumentation increased in the medium category. The students' responses to problem-based learning got very good results. Therefore, it can be concluded that problem-based learning can improve scientific thinking skills on additive material.</p> Shefi Andarista, Laily Rosdiana ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://ejournal.unesa.ac.id/index.php/pensa/article/view/46446 Tue, 31 Jan 2023 00:00:00 +0000 PENERAPAN MODEL PEMBELAJARAN TEAMS GAMES TOURNAMENT UNTUK MENINGKATKAN HASIL BELAJAR SISWA https://ejournal.unesa.ac.id/index.php/pensa/article/view/46425 <p>This research aimed to determine the effect of TGT learning model on improvement students’ cognitive learning outcomes in the human digestive system material and students’ responses to the TGT model.

The purpose of this study was to identify the elements of a scientific approach contained in the science textbooks of SMP class VIII materials for additives and addictive substances. This research is a qualitative research. The object of this research comes from sources of 3 (three) books for class VIII science in junior high school which are determined on the basis of the books used in teaching science and addictive and addictive materials. This study uses the elements of a scientific approach from 5M (observing, asking, trying, analyzing and communicating). The analytical technique used in this research is content analysis by reading, studying and analyzing. The results showed that the elements of a scientific approach in the Education Unit Level Curriculum (KTSP) version of the book contained two elements, namely observing and asking questions, while in the Contextual Teaching and Learning (CTL) version there were four elements, namely observing, asking, trying and analyzing, for the 2013 Curriculum book (K-13) there are all elements ranging from observing, asking, trying, analyzing and communicating which have been presented well. The element of a scientific approach that must appear in every book is the element of observing and questioning which is the most basic skill..</p> Miftakhul Wahyu Ramadhani, Erman Erman, Wahyu Budi Sabtiawan ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://ejournal.unesa.ac.id/index.php/pensa/article/view/48873 Tue, 31 Jan 2023 00:00:00 +0000 PENERAPAN MODEL DISCOVERY LEARNING SECARA VIRTUAL UNTUK MENINGKATKAN HASIL BELAJAR IPA MATERI KEMAGNETAN PADA SISWA SMP https://ejournal.unesa.ac.id/index.php/pensa/article/view/50331 <p>This study was aimed to describe the result of virtual discovery learning model implementation in improving learning outcomes of Junior High School students on magnetism.
