This study aims to determine the effectiveness of the science module based on the contextual learning approach (CTL) in improving the critical thinking skills of junior high school students. The research method used was a quasi-experimental study involving 30 students in the experimental class and 30 students in the control class from a junior high school in Surakarta. The data collection technique was done by measuring students' critical thinking skills before (pretest) and after learning using the Science module (posttest). The instrument used was a critical thinking skill test based on Facione's critical thinking skills indicator. The improvement of students 'critical thinking skills was analyzed using a pretest-posttest gain score and followed by an independent sample t-test to determine the significance of the difference in the average increase in students' critical thinking skills. The results showed that the use of a science module based on a contextual learning approach could improve students' critical thinking skills, with a score of 0.46, or in the category of moderate improvement compared to control class students, with a score of 0.29, or in the low improvement category. Meanwhile, based on the results of the t-test the average gain score of the two classes shows a significant difference in the improvement of critical thinking skills between students who are taught using the Science module and students who are taught using conventional modules.

Science Content Knowledge (SCK) teachers are one of the main things in providing science learning that follows scientific conceptions. One of the causes of misconceptions or inappropriate concepts that students have regarding science is the teacher. So, the purpose of this study is to identify pre-service teachers at primary school about the SCK. The research method used in this study is a quantitative method with a survey design. Data were collected from 131 participants from the Primary School Teacher Education Program in the early semester. The essential concepts in science (physics) used in the study are elementary and junior high school. The instrument is a multiple-choice test with four answers choices with 40 questions. The study finds that for almost every essential physics/science concept, the SCK of the pre-service teachers needs to be improved. This result contradicts our expectations considering the concepts being tested are for elementary and junior high schools. SCK is playing an important element in giving the quality of learning science and building and preparing students to meet the next educational level. Thus, teaching physics from an early age must be taught conceptually and presented with appropriate representations to make it easier for students to learn.

The purpose of this study was to describe the critical thinking skills of students of SMAN 8 Muaro Jambi in physics learning material temperature and heat. The approach used in this study is a mixed-methods approach with a sequential explanatory design that combines sequential quantitative and qualitative research methods. The sample used in this study was 96 students of SMAN 8 Muaro Jambi. Data collection techniques using tests and interviews. The results showed that for the mastery of critical thinking skills as a whole on the material, the temperature and heat of the students were at a non-critical level with a percentage of 40.5%. Based on the results of the study, it was found that students of SMAN 8 Muaro Jambi were in the non-critical category. The low ability of students to think critically is because students are not used to being presented with active learning that maximizes their thinking potential. By doing this research, the teacher can improve students' critical thinking skills in learning physics, especially temperature and heat material.

This study is aimed at determining the viscosity of Sumbawa honey. The sample used was produced by the Apis Dorsata species of honeybees, having three different types of concentrations: 10%, 20% and 30%, respectively. The test sample solution was at a temperature of 23.3 ± 0.5 oC. The viscosity value was determined using the corrected vertical spherical oscillation method. The results of this study identified a tendency for increased viscosity to the concentration of honey solution, which has been determined by extrapolating the equation of the linear regression. The relationship of concentration to true viscosity satisfies the equation y = 0.0199x + 0.0160. Furthermore, the Sumbawa honey viscosity was 2.006 Pa.s.
