Student’s Worksheet, Problem Solving, Problem Based Learning



Solving mathematical problems is a critical ability mastered by students. This study aims to produce worksheets for mathematical learners based on PBL to improve problem-solving skills. This research uses research and development (R&D). This study uses a 4D development model with several stages, including defining, design, development and dissemination. The subjects of this study were tenth-grade high school students in Central Java, Indonesia. Data collection methods using observation, interviews, and questionnaires. The instrument used in this study was a validation sheet. Analysis of needs in worksheets used by students is the first stage in this study. The results of the report are used as a reference for the development of instructional media in the form of student worksheets. The research is a limited study where research is limited to the initial design stage. The results of the initial design validation found that the category is perfect, with an average value of 36. This research can be continued at the development and dissemination stage.
