INCREASING INTEREST IN LEARNING MATHEMATICS THROUGH THE TPS METHOD AT MTSN 4 PIDIE
The problem raised in this CAR is that only 9 or 43% of 22 students achieve the Minimum Completeness Criteria (KKM) in Mathematics at Madrasah, where students lack mastery and understanding of Mathematics KD: 3.6.1. Identify the circle elements in the form of lines and their characteristics, which are inseparable from the learning system carried out by the teacher. The problem faced by the author in Mathematics about circles so that the focus that needs to be improved is by changing learning methods, normative and fun, namely through the implementation of the Think Pair Share (TPS) cooperative learning method. As for the research results in the first cycle of students who completed as many as 15 students or 68.18%. Meanwhile, in cycle II, 20 students or 90.91% of students who completed the completion had mastered the basic competencies of the role of state institutions. So that seen from the completeness of learning from before the action was carried out up to Cycle II there was an increase of 50%.
