    Abstract

    Critical thinking is one becomes the objective in education because it can help develop the students’ potency development. However, Newton's laws is considered difficult for the students because they need to think critically to solve the problems through Newton's laws. It can be also seen from the students’ low score of that topic. Moreover, the students also lack of critical thinking ability in Physics learning especially in the topic of Newton's laws. Therefore, because there is no teaching material which can specifically improve students’ critical thinking ability, this study aims to develope learning material in form of module to improve students’ critical thinking ability in learning Newton’s Laws topic. This study employed Research and Development design. The participants of this study were 10th grade students of 48 students SMAN 1 Metro. This study developed Creative Problem Solving (CPS) learning model to improve the students’ critical thinking ability in learning Newton’s Laws topic. The result shows that the modul can enhance students' critical thinking skills since the students can achieve the knowledge and train their critical thinking abilities. In addition, the use of creative problem solving learning model can also improve the students' critical thinking skill through the stages in the model of creative problem solving and the stages in critical thinking. This study concluded that the module development through CPS learning model can improve the students’ critical thinking ability, as shown in the step of CPS model and the step of critical thinking which related to and strengthened one another. Key Words: Creative Problem Solving, Module, Critical Thinking.
