This study aims to evaluate the impact of problem-based learning methods on junior high school students' mathematical understanding. The research method used was a randomized control experiment involving two groups of students: one group received problem-based learning, while the control group received conventional learning. Data was collected through mathematical comprehension tests before and after intervention. The results of the analysis show that students who take part in problem-based learning show a significant increase in mathematical understanding compared to students who receive conventional learning. These findings highlight the importance of learning methods that actively involve students in solving mathematical problems to improve their understanding.
