ATTRACTING STUDENTS TO LEARN PHYSICS VIA THE BRAIN BASED TEACHING APPROACH

S. Saleh

Universiti Sains Malaysia (MALAYSIA)
Physics is often labeled as a difficult and boring subject to be learnt at school. This negative perception has lead to the lack of motivation towards the learning of Physics among students. The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of the Brain Based Teaching Approach in attracting students towards learning Physics. Techniques implemented in this study were based on the Brain Based Learning Principles in a brain-compatible learning environment. The effectiveness of this Brain Based Teaching Approach within the targeted context was assessed in a quasi-experimental research method involving 200 students from four regular secondary schools in the northern peninsular of Malaysia. Data collected through the Questionnaire of Physics Learning Motivation, which was then verified with student interviews, were analyzed qualitatively to investigate the patterns formed. The findings of the research showed that this teaching approach was effective in attracting students towards learning Physics. It was found that students who were exposed to the Brain Based Teaching Approach possessed a better Physics learning motivation, compared to students who received conventional teaching method.
