Rizka Nurlina Damanik, Bornok Sinaga, E. Elvis Napitupulu


This study aims: (1) to analyze the effect size of the learning model on students' mathematical creative thinking abilities; (2) to find out the right learning model to improve students' mathematical creative thinking skills; (3) to do a meta-analysis of the influence of the learning model on the mathematical creative thinking ability of junior high school students. The data used as a meta-analysis of the selected articles are statistical data to be able to calculate the effect size and standard error. Furthermore, after passing this stage, a meta-analysis was carried out to determine heterogeneity, summary effect and evaluation of publication. Based on the results of the analysis conducted from 16 studies, it was found that 1 study had the highest effect size with the application of the Project Based Learning Model with an effect size value of 0.875. This study has the highest magnitude of influence among other studies. Furthermore, the largest effect size ranks second and third with an effect size value of 0.828 and 0.719.The project-based learning model (PBL) is considered more effective to improve the mathematical creative thinking skills of junior high school students with an effect of 0.875. The results of the meta-analysis of the learning model on students' mathematical creative thinking skills are classified in the strong category withstrong with rRE= 0.455.
