The ability to think critically is the ability to identify and formulate a problem, which includes determining the point, finding similarities and differences, extracting relevant information and data, the ability to consider and assess, which includes distinguishing between facts and opinions, finding assumptions or assumptions, separating prejudices and emotional influence, considering consistency in thinking and drawing reliable conclusions based on relevant data and estimating the consequences that may arise. Interest in learning is one of the internal factors that affect student achievement. The students will be more interested in learning something they like and their interests are also related to the students’ motivation and emotions. This study aims to see the effect of chemical learning interest on students’ critical thinking skills on the periodic system material. The subjects of this study were students of class X MIA 5 and X MIA 7. Measurement of students’ critical thinking skills using questions arranged based on indicators of critical thinking skills and to see student’s interest in learning using a learning interest questionnaire adjust to chemistry learning. The student learning interest questionnaire is arranged based on a Likert scale. Respondents indicate agree or disagree with the order of questions about the object of attitude. The test instruments and questionnaires used are valid criteria. Testing data using the SPSS 20 for windows program, it is known that the level of importance also affects the significant value of 0.001 is less than 0.05. This price indicates that students’ critical thinking skills influence the differences in the level of interest in learning chemistry.
