Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between students’ understanding of science and decision-making based gender on socio-scientific issues (SSI), especially on environmental pollution in Indonesia. Science Instruction based SSI was developed and implemented to encourage students to understand and reflect on knowledge and decision making on the issue in the current society. Eighteen students attended the instruction and participated in pre-test and post-test. Data were collected by utilized decision-making and science knowledge test then analyzed by correlation product moment test. Regarding the relationship of the two domains revealed that there was no difference between male and female on decision making whereas the correlation analysis between the understanding of scientific knowledge and decision making did not show a positive and significant correlation, decision making is determined by the understanding of science only 6.978 %. These results highlight there are other variables besides the understanding of sciences concept and gender that have a significant correlation to decision making on SSI.
