Abstract

This study aimed to determine: (1) which one is more effective between Computational Thinking Based
Learning (CTBL) and Problem Based Learning (PBL) on learning achievement, (2) which one is better,
students with left brain dominance or students with right brain dominance, (3) for each brain dominance,
which one is better between CTBL and PBL. This study used a quasi-experimental research method with
a 2x2 factorial design. The population in this study were all students of class VIII SMPN 1 Bendo in the
Academic Year 2020/2021, totaling 9 classes. The research sample included 45 students (two classes) who
were taken using cluster random sampling. The instrument used was a questionnaire on the students’ brain
dominance and a mathematics learning outcome test. From the results of this analysis, it can be concluded
that CTBL was more effective to implement compared to PBL in odd semester class eight students at SMP
1 Bendo Magetan in the Academic Year 2020/2021. There were differences in the results of mathematics
learning achievement in students who were given CTBL and PBL in terms of the brain dominance of odd
semester class eight students at SMPN 1 Bendo Magetan in the Academic Year 2020/2021.
