West Papua province has a geothermal resource that can be established as renewable electricity energy or tourism. One of the locations for geothermal prospects is in the Momiwaren district of South Manokwari regency. A preliminary study in form of a qualitative interpretation has been conducted through the analysis of high-resolution of earth gravity fields from the Global Gravity Map developed by Curtin University, Australia. This research was performed to increase the boundary of the geological structure which indicates the existence of a source of manifestation of hotsprings and the fault structures that control it. The study begins with the reduction of the gravity field data to obtain a complete Bouguer anomaly based on the SRTM2gravity terrain model correction. Furthermore, regional and residual gravity anomalies are separated, and vertical and horizontal gravitational gradient analysis using 2-D fast Fourier transform. Qualitative interpretation produces models and boundaries of the main structure and the corresponding Demini and Gaya Baru faults and the distribution of the geological rock formations in the study area. This interpretation provides useful information as a constraint for quantitative interpretation through subsurface inversion modeling to obtain detailed geothermal models in Momiwaren.

This developmental research had developed two applicablecurious note programs (CNPs) worksheets for quantifyingstudent performances in designing experiment on newton law’s of gravity. This study involved fourdevelopmental proceduresof Thiagarajan’s 4-D model. The CNPs worksheet was pilot tested in 3 groups of students at Yogyakarta’s public school. It included 22 students for the pilot group and 60 students for the implement group. Our initial step of this developmental project had designed applicable CNPs worksheet based on acceptable CVI values, reliable measured results, and positivefeedbacks from the user in both worksheets. Using this instrument, this study had revealed some interesting findings that our participants still discovered some difficulties in performing this kind of scientific abilities. Meanwhile, this study has recommended CNPs worksheet for the physics education communities as a convincing tool for measuring students’ ability in designing physical experiment.

The creative innovation in education in the era of revolution 4.0 is the use of electronic-based teaching materials as a source of student learning. This study aims to examine the effect of using a flipbook-based e-module on transverse wave material with a one group pretest posttest design research design. The research method that has been used is quasi-experimental research design with one group pretest posttest design. The research sample was students of Sriwijaya University Physics Education. Data were analyzed using N-gain analysis, normality test, homogeneity test and Paired Sample T-test. The results showed that the posttest test results were higher than the pretest tests with an average of 33.28, while the normality test results obtained pretest data of 0.026 and posttest data of 0.257. Finally, the N-gain test results were obtained at 0.466 in the moderate category, it was concluded that there was an effect of using flipbook-based e-modules on dynamic electricity on student learning outcomes, so the use of flipbook-based e-modules was effectively used as teaching material on student learning outcomes.

This study aims to develop instructional media in the form of guided inquiry-based e-handout using seasons and ecliptic simulator which is suitable to be used to support the learning process of seventh grade SMP/MTs students. The research method uses the ADDIE model which includes five stages, namely the analysis stage (analyze), the planning stage (design), the development stage (develop), the implementation stage (implement) and the evaluation stage (evaluate). Research instruments include e-handout, pretest / post-test learning outcome, student response questionnaires, validation sheets. Through the developed e-handout, it is expected to improve mastery of the physics concept of seasons. E-handout learning has gone through the validation test stage with a score of 3.51 with a very good category so that it is declared feasible according to material experts to be used as a learning medium in the classroom. The improvement of student learning outcomes through the use of guided inquiry-based e-handout using seasons and ecliptic simulator to increase students' understanding of the concept of seasons is indicated by a standard gain value of 0.66 in the moderate category. Thus, the development of guided inquiry-based e-handouts using seasons and ecliptic simulator is suitable to be used as a science/ physics learning medium and able to improve understanding of seasons concepts.

The purpose of this study was to describe the effectiveness of a wetland environment-based practicum module to train students' science process skills. This research was a research and development study with a 4D model (Define, Design, Develop and Disseminate) with the limitations of this research in the form of product effectiveness only. The product has been validated and the result was 89% categorized as very valid. The subjects of the trial were students of Lambung Mangkurat University Physics Education and the subjects of the distribution stage were Physics Tadris students UIN Antasari. The instrument used in the study was a science process skills assessment sheet, meanwhile the data analysis is done by calculate the n-gain on the value of science process skills and accompanied by the average value of each meeting as supporting data. The results shows that this module was effective in the medium category. It can be conclude that this wetland environment-based practicum module is effective for use in lectures.

The main problem in this research is how the results of the level of understanding of physics concepts on the aspect of translation through the guided incuri learning model? The type of this research is True Experimental Design by using Posttest-Only Control Design. The research instrument used was a test of understanding the concept of the translational aspects of physics in the form of essay questions. The population is 120 students from class X of SMKN Buyasuri, and the sample is X class students "Ruminansia" totaling 30 people and "Poultry" totaling 30 people. The analysis technique used is descriptive analysis and inferential analysis through normality test, homogeneity test, and hypothesis testing. The results of descriptive statistical analysis showed that the level of understanding the concept of the physics translation aspects of class X students in Ruminansia that were taught using the guided inquiry model obtained an average score of 85.33 and a standard deviation of 7.63 and an understanding of the concept of the physics translation aspects of Poultry class students taught without using the guided inquiry model obtained an average score of 70.33 and a standard deviation of 9.90. While the results of inferential statistical analysis show that the two classes come from homogeneous normally distributed populations and the value of tcount> ttable is 6.474> 1.673.

This study aims to determine the proportion of students' level of critical thinking skills on the subject of Impulse and Momentum, any difficulties experienced by students to reach the level of critical thinking skills, and solutions to overcome the difficulties of students achieving critical thinking skills. This research uses descriptive qualitative research methods. The subjects of this study were 27 students taken by purposive sampling technique. Data collection techniques in this study are tests of critical thinking skills, interviews, and observation. Data analysis techniques using descriptive statistics. The results showed that each student's ability, high ability students 36.84%, medium ability 34.50%, low ability 22.80% divided into two categories of KBK 2 with a percentage of 52.63% and KBK 1 with a percentage of 23, 94%. From the results of the study also obtained the achievement of students every KBK indicator. Student achievement in the Interpretation indicator of 51.58% Analysis 18.75% Evaluation 13.87% Inference 31.48% Explication 14.19% and Self Regulation 26.85%. So KBK students as a whole are in the low category with a percentage of 31.38%. The cause of students 'difficulties in fulfilling CBC indicators is the limited ability of students to formulate and find other alternatives, the completion of students' answers is difficult to draw conclusions and connect substance between materials, and has not been studied in depth so students tend to be careless in solving problems. The solution that can be used is to provide more experience to students in terms of critical thinking skills and additional learning outside school hours.
