The Use of Snakes and Ladders Game Media on Learning Outcomes of Calculation and Addition Operations in Blind Children

Devit Kusuma Wardana | Agnes Fitri Anjarsari

Abstract: Mathematics has an important role in human life. So the math is taught at all levels and types of schools, including special schools and special schools. One material that is taught in mathematics lessons are arithmetic operations addition and subtraction. Learning addition and subtraction arithmetic operations on children with visual impairments use only the lecture method. So that learning becomes boring and less fun. Therefore, it required learning media. Based on the above issues, the authors conducted research using a media. Media appropriate for material addition and subtraction arithmetic operation is a modified snake game ladder to be used by blind children. Research was conducted with the aim to improve learning outcomes arithmetic operations addition and subtraction in children with visual impairments through the use of the media snake ladder game in SLB-AYPABX. To achieve that objective quantitative approach was used with some methods of data collection are: 1. Method of observation 2. Method of test 3. Documentation methods for the analysis of research data using Non- Parametric analysis techniques to test the formula Signs (Sign Test). From the analysis of pre-test and post-test with the sign test formula (ZH) obtained, count (ZH) is 2.05 with the critical value = 5 % (test one side) we know that the critical value (Z table) =1.64and critical value =5 % (two-sided test) with a critical value (Z table) =1.96. So that Ho is rejected because ZH > ZH 1.64 and > 1.96. With Ho rejection means Ha received which means there is significant influence media use snake ladder game against the results of learning arithmetic operations addition and subtraction in blind children in the class III SLB-A YPABX.
