Abstract

The objectives of this research were 1) to compare science learning achievements of Prathom Suksa V students before and after learning under learning management integrating between the inquiry and simulation methods in the topic of Force and Pressure; 2) to compare science problem solving abilities of the students before and after learning under learning management integrating; and 3) to study the relationship between science learning achievement and science problem solving ability of the students after learning under learning management integrating.The research sample consisted of 36 Prathom Suksa V students in an intact classroom of Kammuead Kaewbumpen Wittaya School in Kalasin province, obtained by cluster random sampling.  The research instruments were 1) a science learning achievement test; 2) a science problem solving ability test; and 3) learning management plans for the learning management integrating between the inquiry and simulation methods in the topic of Force and Pressure.  Data were analyzed using the mean, standard deviation, t-test, and Pearson product moment correlation.The findings were as follows: 1) the post-learning science learning achievement of the students after learning under learning management integrating was significantly higher than their pre-learning counterpart achievement at the .05 level; 2) the post-learning science problem solving ability of the students after learning under learning management integrating was significantly higher than their pre-learning counterpart ability at the .05 level; and 3) the students’ science learning achievement and their science problem solving ability correlated positively and significantly at the .05 level.
