Abstract

Topik geometri dirasakan sulit oleh siswa karena berhubungan dengan kemampuan khusus yakni kemampuan spasial. Tujuan mengetahui pengaruh kemampuan spasial terhadap hasil belajar matematika siswa. Metode yang digunakan dalam penelitian ini yaitu metode penelitian korelasi yang bersifat ekpost facto atau causal research dengan menggunakan pendekatan kuantitatif. Penelitian ini dilaksanakan di kelas XI OTKP SMK Al-Madina Cianjur yang berjumlah 22 siswa. SMK Al Madina beralamat di Jalan Caringin, Limbangan Sari, Kecamatan Cianjur, Kabupaten Cianjur. Dari hasil penelitian menunjukkan antara kemampuan spasial dan hasil belajar matematika siswa memiliki korelasi yang tinggi dan memiliki jenis hubungan yang positif dengan koefisien korelasi yang diperoleh yaitu 0,869. Kemampuan spasial memiliki pengaruh terhadap hasil belajar matematika sebesar 75,5% sedangkan 24,5% dipengaruhi faktor lain yang tidak diukur dalam penelitian ini.

Keywords: kemampuan spasial, hasil belajar, geometri
