Improving Students' Learning Outcomes Regarding Comparing and Sorting Two Numbers In Mathematics Subjects Using Cooperative Learning Model The Numbered Heads Together (NHT) Type

Linda Indriani Yuniar


This research has several objectives, the first is to find out whether the application of the Numbered Heads Together (NHT) cooperative learning model can improve students' math learning outcomes about comparing and ordering two numbers in 1st grade of elementary school. The second objective is to determine the process of improving student learning outcomes in mathematics subjects about comparing and ordering two numbers after using the Numbered Heads Together (NHT) learning model in 1st grade of elementary school. The third objective is to measure the magnitude of the increase in student learning outcomes in the mathematics subject of comparing and ordering two numbers after using the Numbered Heads Together (NHT) type cooperative learning model in 1st grade of elementary school. The results showed that before applying the Cooperative Numbered Heads Together (NHT) learning model, students' learning outcomes only reached an average score of 66.15, then there was an increase after using the Cooperative Numbered Heads Together (NHT) learning model to 74.61 in cycle 1 and 81.79 in cycle 2. It can be concluded that the use of the cooperative learning model of the Numbered Heads Together (NHT) type can be a fun learning variation for students so that it is proven to improve student learning outcomes.
