Application of discovery learning model to improve mathematics knowledge competence



competence, discovery learning, knowledge competency, learning model, remedial


This study aims to improve the competence of mathematics content knowledge of grade II A students of SD No. 5 Dalung for the 2020/2021 school year by applying the Discovery Learning learning model. The subjects of this study were students of grade V SD No. 5 Dalung, totaling 26 students. This research was conducted in two learning cycles, with the stages in each cycle being planning, executing an action, observing and evaluating, and reflecting. The results of knowledge competencies were analyzed descriptively by determining the class average value and learning completeness. The results of the analysis showed that there was an increase in the average score of competence in the knowledge of Mathematics content, namely 57.69 cycles I and cycle II to 80.96 with 58% completeness in cycle I and cycle II to 100%. In general, this PTK can answer questions that have been formulated and can achieve the expected goals. This can be seen from the fulfillment of the specified criteria, namely the competence of students' knowledge at the end of the second cycle has met the KKM.
