Abstract

This study aims to determine the effect of the story box media assisted inquiry
learning model on the ability to solve math story problems in grade 5 students of SDN 2

Kupen Pringsurat. This type of research is a pre-experiment with the One Group Pretest-
Posttest Design model. The research subjects were taken by saturated sampling. The

samples taken were 28 students. The data collection method was carried out by multiple
choice tests totaling 22 questions. The validity test uses the Pearson formula, the
reliability test uses the Cronbach's alpha formula, the difficulty index test, the
distinguishing power test with the help of IBM SPSS Statistics 23.0 for windows . The
analysis prerequisite test consisted of the Saphiro Wilk normality test with the help
of IBM SPSS Statistics 23.0 for windows. Data analysis used parametric statistical
techniques, namely assisted Paired Sample T-test IBM SPSS Statistics 23.0 for windows .
The results showed that the story box assisted inquiry model had a positive effect on the
ability to solve math story problems. This is evidenced by the results of the analysis of
the Paired Sample T-test with a probability sig. (2-tailed) of 0.001 <0.05, with an
average pre-test score of 53.14 and a post-test score of 79.86 . Based on the results of the

analysis and discussion, there was an increase of 26.72 from the average score of the pre-
test and post-test . The results of this study can be concluded that the inquiry learning

model assisted by the story box media has a positive effect on the ability to solve math
story problems.
