The Analysis of Mathematical Creative Thinking Skills and Self-Efficacy of High School Students Built Through Implementation of Problem Based Learning and Discovery Learning

Nani Ratnaningsih


This research implements Problem Based Learning and Discovery Learning model to analysis the increase of
mathematical creative thinking skills, mistakes in the process of mathematical creative thinking, and self-efficacy of
high school students in Tasikmalaya. The research method used is descriptive, data collection techniques through
creative thinking ability tests and questionnaires mathematics self-efficacy. The instruments were previously assessed
by experts in mathematics education. Based on the data analysis, it is concluded that the mathematical creative thinking
abilities of students through Problem Based Learning is increasing compared to the mathematical creative thinking
abilities of students through Discovery Learning. Mistakes students of mathematical creative thinking processes in
Problem Based Learning, generally on flexibility and originality indicators. While at Discovery Learning, mistakes
students of mathematical creative thinking processes is generally on sensitivity, flexibility and originality indicators.
Flexibility is solving the problem with a variety of different ways, but the result is the same, and originality is to solve
the problem in its own way does not use a standard formula. Sensitivity is the ability to detect problems. Self-efficacy
of students in Problem Based Learning and Discovery Learning are both at high qualifications.
