THE IMPLEMENTATION OF VIDEO-BASED LEARNING IN PRIME NUMBER MATERIAL TO IMPROVE THE COGNITIVE STUDENTS’ ABILITY
Students at the elementary school level have difficulty in understanding concepts and solving problems in prime number material so that their scores do not get satisfactory results. Researchers made learning videos as one of the teaching way in which the materials can be used by the educators in the learning process. This study aimed to describe the implementation of video-based learning on prime numbers material to improve students’ cognitive abilities. This research used descriptive qualitative design. The subjects of this study were 4th-grade students at SDIT Nurul Fikri Aceh, consisted of 21 students. Teaching and learning using media of YouTube video as the result of the researchers’ work was conducted, and an evaluation was carried out at the end of the lesson. The result is that learning mathematics using video media can improve students’ cognitive abilities. This is indicated by the percentage of completeness obtaining a result of 90.5% which indicates that students’ cognitive abilities in learning mathematics are very high. Based on the results of the study, it was shown that the use of mathematics learning video media as a medium can support learning effectiveness which includes high learning outcomes, good student activity, and positive students’ responses. Thus it improved students’ cognitive abilities.
