Abstract


The implementation of the learning process in the curriculum 2013, requires students to be actively involved in every learning activity. To create this, it is necessary to apply a new innovation in learning activities. STEM is an abbreviation of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. These four aspects of STEM can help students have 21st century skills in communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity that are useful for students to compete in the 21st century. This research aims to describe teacher’s proficiency manages teaching process, student’s activity, learning output, and students` response towards learning mathematics by applying the STEM approach. The method of this research is descriptive with qualitative and quantitative approach. The data are gathered by using observation, test, and questionnaire methods. The result of this research showed that: 1) teacher’s proficiency in managing the learning process using STEM approach was categorized as very good with average score of 3,53; (2) the activities of students during the learning process by applying the STEM approach there are 5 appropriate activities and 5 inappropriate activities with the ideal timeframe which arranged by RPP; (3) the learning output based on recapitulation of final test showed that 23 of 25 students had already passed the material of the distance between two points and the distance between a point and a line in dimension three with earned the percentage of completeness success classically 92%; and (4) the student’s responses overall has a positive response with an average percentage of responses 82,4%.
