Title: THE USE OF DRY LAB TO ENHANCE STUDENTS’ COMPREHENSION IN PHYSICS CONCEPTS FOR UNDER GRADUATE ELEMENTARY STUDENTS TEACHER ( S1-PGSD) OF UNIVERSITAS TERBUKA (UT)
Author: Dimyati, Surachman; Mujadi
Abstract: The aim of the study was to investigate whether the use of dry labs would enhance students’ comprehension in learning physics concepts. The methodology used was mix methods, quantitative and qualitative approach. From the population of the nationwide students, the use of purposive sampling method, four classes of students in the city of Tangerang were used. All of those students were taught with the use of conventional method. Then the pretest was implemented. Shortly after that, the use of dry lab was implemented by using power point provided in all of the physics concepts; mirrors, lenses, and electrics. Then a post test was given. Analysis of the results in pretests and posttests showed a significant different between without using and using dry labs. Moreover, there were several important findings during the process of instructions in the study. Most of the UT’s students sample in the city of Tangerang had their own computers. One female student explained that her family had three laptops; however she did not use the computer optimally. She just used the computer for typing only. She surprised that physics concepts can be understood much easily by the use of dry labs in the computers. The impacts of this study were beyond expectation. Most students promised to use their computers to learn physics or other subject matters by downloading some free dry labs in the internet or buy some science books with CD companion that works as dry labs.
