This type of research was quasi-experimental research. The study population was all high school grade X students as a hypothetical population. The research sample consisted of 67 people consisting of 33 students in class X MIPA 1 as a control class and 34 students in class X MIPA 2 as an experimental class. Data collection techniques used observation sheets. The result shows that average score of the creative thinking ability of the control class students obtained a mean of 64 with a moderate category while the experimental class obtained an average of 74 with a high category. This shows the influence of glossary media in the material world of plants in SMAN 1 Teluk Kuantan with a significant level of 0.05. Thus, there is an influence of the use of pictorial glossaries on the creative thinking abilities of the control class students with the experimental class on plant material in the learning process.

The paper aims to investigate the association between students’ participation in Co-curricular Activities (CCAs) and their soft skill development. Moreover, the study attempts to find out whether the association between these two variables is statistically significant. The study reasonably employed survey method where primary data were collected from a total of 135 students who were sampled from 16 academic departments of a public university in Bangladesh based on non-probability sampling techniques. The study found that the students have developed diverse soft skills (which involve different personal skills and social skills) much via their participation in CCAs. The study observed that there is a moderate positive association between students’ participation in CCAs and their various personal and social skills excepting presentation skill, organizing skill and network-building skill in which strong positive association was found. Moreover, the study found that there is a significant association between students’ participation in CCAs and their diverse personal skills and social skills. Hence, the study argued that the association between students’ participation in CCAs and their soft skill development is statistically significant. Finally, the study suggested that the Government and the authority concerned should undertake suitable policy in order to utilize CCAs and thereby ensure quality education.

The ability to solve mathematical problems is a very important part that must be owned and developed by students in learning mathematics. However, generally Indonesian students' abilities are very low in understanding complex information and problem solving. Therefore, this article aims to know: 1) the increase in Mathematical Problem Solving Ability (MPSA) of students who get Problem Based Learning (PBL) better than students who get conventional learning with a scientific approach is reviewed overall and based on KAM levels; 2) find out the interaction between PBL and conventional models with KAM level to MPSA; 3) the difference in MPSA increase of students who get PBL learning in terms of KAM level. The research method used was a quasi-experimental research design with a pretest-posttest control group design. The sample of 6 grade students of SMAN 2 Bangkinang Kota class XI totaling 183 students. The instrument in this article is a MPSA test using t-test, two-way ANOVA test and one-way ANOVA test. The results in this study were: 1) the increase in MPSA of students who received PBL learning was better than students who received conventional learning in terms of overall and KAM; 2) there is a significant interaction between PBL and conventional models with KAM level to MPSA; and 3) there is a difference in the increase in MPSA of students who get PBL learning in terms of KAM level significantly.

This study aims to analyze students' critical thinking skill in exploiting covalent bond material. The method applied in this study was descriptive qualitative with a case study approach. It was conducted at one of high schools in Bandung were the participants were the tenth grade students’. The instruments used for data collection were audio, video and observation sheets. The collected data were analyzed using Transcript Based Lesson Analysis (TBLA). The results indicated that three out of twelve indicators of critical thinking skill had been identified in learning covalent bonds. The three indicators are formulating questions, answering the “why” questions, and identifying differences. The low achievement of critical thinking indicators was due to the method used in teaching which is still informative or transferring knowledge from teacher to student (teacher-centered) without giving sufficient time for students to reflect the material presented, link it with prior knowledge, or apply it in real life situations.
