The data analysis technique was the analysis of frequency distribution to measure the increase in student learning participation and increase learning outcome. The success criteria determined that at least 85% of students in the class can actively participate in the learning process and the implementation of formative tests successfully achieves a mastery score of learning materials of at least 85% / are in the optimal category. The results of the study indicated that inquiry learning strategies were effective in improving student learning outcome and participation in studying Population and Environmental Education subject. Optimizing the application of inquiry strategy can be done by giving knowledge and self-sufficient skills to students before carrying out learning activities.
