Abstract

This study aims at enhancing students' understanding of mathematical concepts especially on the material of Linear Program through the implementation of a cooperative teaching model of Think Pair Square. The study was carried out to all of the students of class X-C of SMK Patria Muda Kalasan totaled 31 students in the academic year of 2009/2010. This research was action research undertaken collaboratively between teachers and the researcher. The instruments used to collect data were in the forms of the researcher as the primary instrument, observation sheets, tests, and interview guides with students and teachers. The data collection technique was by observing, interviewing students and teachers, testing, and documenting. The data obtained were analyzed descriptively in each cycle. Data were analyzed from the teaching actions undertaken and developed during the teaching process. The research took place in 2 cycles with 3 meetings in each cycle. Conclusions after the implementation of the actions were: (1) the teaching model of Think Square Pair that could enhance students' understanding of concepts in this research was done in three stages, namely think, pair, and square. The first stage was the think stage in which individually, students were given time to understand the problems that have been granted. The next stage was pair stage, the stage when the teacher invited students to discuss paired with their friends. The last stage was the square stage, a stage where both partners joined together based on the student groups determined to have discussions and then presented to the entire class; (2) implementation of the mathematics teaching with the teaching model of the Think Pair Square type in class X-C of SMK Muda Patria Kalasan could enhance the students’ understanding of mathematical concepts and this was shown from: (a) the average percentage of the observation sheet feasibility of the teaching feasibility of the Think Pair Square model increased from 87.13% in the high category on the first cycle to be 98.48% with the high category on the second cycle, (b) the average value of tests increased at the end of Cycle I with the value of 74.35 while in cycle II, the value was 81.55, and (c) the results of interviews with students showed that the Pair Square Think of students’ concept understanding increased and students were more motivated because they could do assignments with the ability to own and discuss with friends. Keywords: Think Pair Square, students’ understanding on math concepts
