Abstract


The integration of learning models and software is a trend in mathematics courses. However, no existing learning model for geometry courses involves the students in the making of a tool or media project. The researchers noticed the potential of the project-based learning (PjBL) model and GeoGebra in analytical geometry courses. This study revealed differences in the influence of the Geo-PjBL and PjBL models on students’ achievement. The subjects consisted of 137 prospective mathematics teachers. The Basic Geometry Instrument (BGI) was used to measure the subjects’ initial ability in basic geometry, and the Geometry Analytic Instrument (GAI) was used to evaluate the model and prospective teachers’ performance. The Geo-PjBL and PjBL classroom activities lasted for 15 weeks. Both classrooms received the same content; the difference between the Geo-PjBL and PjBL classrooms was the tools used to present the problems and the project results. An analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was conducted to analyze the data (α = 0.01). The Geo-PjBL model is more effective in applying analytical geometry subjects that require precision and accurate visual illustrations. Meanwhile, in the range of algebraic operations, the Geo-PjBL model is as effective as the PjBL model.
