Nyoto Suseno & Agus Setiawan (2012) Pengembangan Model Pembelajaran Inkuiri Menggunakan Analogi Pada Konsep Rangkaian Listrik Seri Dan Paralel
A study using research and development (R & D) was carried out to design inquiry based learning using analogy on concept of the electric series and parallel circuit. Preliminary data is done in same physics education programs in the island Java and Sumatra. It was collected through documentation study, observation and interview. Based on the data, it had been developed learning model in order to carry out limited experiment on physics education program. The steps of data analysis were: selecting and classifying data, coding and describing of the conclusions to decide on the theme consistent to the focus of the research. Research findings show that: 1) the inquiry process could be conducted completely in classroom by group discussion supported analogy as trigger and demonstration to representing electric series and parallel circuit, accompanied with a worksheet, 2) electric series and parallel circuit as target domain could be analogy with composition series-parallel in elastic spring as base domain, and 3) inquiry learning process need are longer time, because the students were not been ready and had low capability in learning physics.
Keywords: inquiry, analogy, electric series and parallel circuit, composition series-parallel in elastic spring, electricity and magnetism.
