Abstract

Students' understanding which is not consistent with scientific conceptions or what is universally accepted can be categorized as misconceptions. Some misconceptions in Chemistry have been investigated in previous studies. Misconception can be contributed by the abstract nature of the concepts, imparted by teachers or preconceived beliefs by students. The aim of this study was to provide a valid, practical, and effective learning materials of Chemistry with science-philosophy oriented to reduce misconception of students on Chemistry. This study applied Research and Development (R & D) design through the development of learning materials with the 4D (define, design, develop, and disseminate) model. Effectivity of the learning materials was assessed by observers and tested to 44 students on the topic of Salt Hydrolysis. The results showed that the developed learning materials reduced misconceptions of science students in grade eleventh from a public senior high school in Indonesia from an average of 53.9% to 19.6%, or decreased misconception by 34.3%. These results indicated that the developed learning materials with science-philosophy oriented were effective in accordance with the purpose of development. These were expected to contribute to improving the quality of learning by reducing misconception of students on Chemistry.
