ABSTRACT

Creative thinking plays an important role in student learning and is part of the higher-order thinking skills that need to be developed in students. Students who have low creative thinking skills will have difficulty solving problems that require higher order thinking skills. Teaching materials that integrate creative thinking skills will help students develop creative thinking skills. One learning resource that can be used as a tool to improve the process of creative thinking is a module. This study aims to design a mathematical module based on the Problem-Based Learning model to improve students' creative thinking abilities. This research uses descriptive qualitative. Data collection instruments include validation guidelines and observation guidelines. Observation guidelines are used to identify the appropriate module criteria. Validation guidelines are used to validate module design by experts. Data were analyzed using the Miles Huberman model consisting of data reduction, data display, and conclusion drawing. This research resulted in a module design. The results showed that the quality of design in the category was very good for improving students' creative thinking skills. Research contributes to designing modules that integrate creative thinking skills. The design of this module can be used by teachers in developing learning resources so that students have creative thinking skills.
