The Influence of Model Problem Based Learning (PBL) with a Contextual Approach Toward Student Learning Outcomes In the Environmental Pollution Subject Matter of at SMA PGRI 2 Sampit(Thesis).

This research was motivated by the poor performance of student learning on the subject of environmental pollution and learning model used by the teacher was still conventional, resulting in a lack of student motivation, this was encouraging researchers to conduct research using the model of Problem Based Learning (PBL) in order to use the model the learning outcomes of students will increase.
This research aimed to: (1) the effect of the model of Problem Based Learning (PBL) with a contextual approach to the matter of environmental pollution on the response of the students, (2) the effect of the model of Problem Based Learning (PBL) with a contextual approach to the material contamination of the environment on cognitive students’outcomes.
This research used descriptive quantitative approach, the type was quasi experimental that was designed by Non-equivalen Control Group Design . The instrument used was a test of learning outcomes and student questionnaire responses. The research population was a class X SMA PGRI Sampit 2nd semester 2016/2017 academic year, the research sample was X-R1 class numbered 21 students as the eksperimen class and X-R2 class numbered 22 students as the control class . The data analysis used SPSS 20 version for Windows.
The result showed that (1) there was posistif effect of Problem Based Learning model with contextual approach on the cognitive students’ learning outcomes with sig 0,000<0,05 (2) there was a very positif effect of Problem Based Learning with contextual approach on students’ responses .
