Abstract

Abstract
One of the high school chemistry materials that contains concrete concepts, abstracts and
involves mathematical calculations is solubility and solubility product (Ksp). Conceptual
understanding is usually expressed in short sentences while understanding algorithms is
expressed by mathematical equations. Both of these understandings are closely related to one
another so that to teach them requires the right learning strategies. Guided inquiry learning
strategies and Problem Solving are thought to be able to improve the conceptual understanding
and algorithm understanding of students with Low Scientific Thinking Ability. This study aims
to determine differences in conceptual understanding with algorithm understanding of students
with KBIR that are taught with guided inquiry strategies and Problem Solving. This study uses
a quasi-experimental design with posttest only control group design. Data from the conceptual
understanding and algorithm test results obtained from the test using 20 multiple choice
questions with a reliability coefficient of 0.71 and content validity of 93.17%. Data analysis
using t test and Product Moment correlation at a significance level of 5%. The results show that
The learning outcomes of student with low scientific thinking ability that learned by guided
inquiry’s strategy is higher than the students that learned by problem solving’s strategy and The
understanding of algorithms of students with low scientific thinking ability is higher than
conceptual understanding both of which that learned by guided inquiry strategies and problem
solving strategies.
