Abstract

This research aims to find out the increased comprehension of trigonometry concept between the students who received STEM learning and the students who received conventional learning. This study is quasi-experimental research with nonequivalent pre-test-post-test control group design. The population is all of the ninth grade students in SMA Negeri 12 Bandar Lampung, Indonesia, and the sample is the ninth graders that are divided into two classes, namely experimental class and control class. The instrument used is the instrument test. The results showed that the increased comprehension of the student’s trigonometry concept who received STEM learning is in the high category with an average of Gain 0,54 and the students who received conventional learning are in the medium category with an average of Gain 0,42. Based on the results of the research has been conducted, it can be concluded that the increased comprehension of the student’s trigonometry concept who gained STEM learning is better than the student who gained conventional learning.
