Critical Thinking and Problem Solving (CTPS) are soft skills essential to be equipped among students according to 21st-century learning. Several instruments have been developed to measure CTPS skills among students in various subjects. This review aimed to identify the type of instrument and the context they are used. The research methodology was b...
Article
The environmental education course currently does not integrate problem-solving problem skills. The purpose of this study was analyzing the results of applying integration on problem-based learning with the RMS (reading, mind mapping, and sharing) learning model. The research method was a quasi-experimental with pre-test-post-test control group des...

Studies have shown that various factors (the role of formal education, informal education, and community) contribute to the lack of participation in STEM and STEM careers. This research aimed to understand the multi pathways of factors contributing to the interest in STEM careers (STEM careers in physical sciences and STEM careers in life sciences)...

The objective of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of integrating the fund of knowledge in the hybridization cognitive strategy to enhance conceptual understanding and remediating misconceptions in physics optics. For this purpose, the quantitative Physics Optics Conceptual Test (POCT) was employed. The test consisted of 10 multiple-c...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Critical thinking is seen as an important competency for academic and career success. In the context of science education, critical thinking is important in order to be an effective citizen in the globalized world powered by rapid scientific and technological development. This paper begins by reviewing the literature on what is science ( knowledge...
Conference Paper

Pengetahuan sains dan kreativiti menjadi dua parameter utama bagi menentukan kualiti seseorang dalam masyarakat kontemporari. Pembelajaran sains membolehkan individu memperoleh pengetahuan dalam sains seterusnya mengaplikasikan ilmu tersebut dalam kehidupan. Pemupukan kreativiti pula telah menjadi semakin penting dalam pembelajaran sains khususnya...
Article
Full-text available
A person’s creativity can be elicited through observations made upon his/her behaviour and personality characteristics which are in turn termed as creativity characteristics. Physics Practical Work (PPW) is a form of instruction which is intended to foster a creative culture in schools in which large numbers of students can be engaged in an environ...
Article
Full-text available
This research is intended to study the characteristics of creativity in two practical-based physics learning activities which are physics practical work (PPW) and physics innovative project (PIP) among pre-service physics teacher at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). The study was conducted in one semester among 12 physics education undergraduate...
Article
Full-text available
This study aims at identifying engineering elements that can be integrated into school science and mathematics curriculum to introduce engineering at the school level. The engineering elements, namely Inquiry, Design, Operate & Improve and Sustainability, were identified through interviews with experts in engineering education, literature review an...
Article
Full-text available
Earlier studies indicated that there are four main engineering elements which are inquiry, design, optimisation and sustainability. The further sub-classification includes 10 sub-elements: interest, discovery, inquisitive mind, imagination, problem solving, prototyping, optimising, maintaining, life cycle and sustainable values. An instrument to me...

result which is the Malaysian Certificate of Education (known as SPM in Malaysia which is equivalent to GCSE in the UK) as the general requirement [3]. Following this, another requirements include their result in a higher level of education of either at a matriculation level (students take general science / art subjects) or Malaysian Higher Certifi...
Conference Paper
Under the Malaysian New Economic Model, a few strategic reform initiatives (SRI) call for globally competitive and excellent engineers. The recruitment of students into engineering programs at Malaysian higher education institutes is based solely on the students' examination results. Hence, it is not known whether students who apply for engineering...
