ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of inquiry-discovery approach in teaching and learning of chemistry as compared to the conventional approach. The effects of inquiry-discovery approaches are focused on students' achievement and attitude towards chemistry as a subject and also the learning of chemistry. The quantitative research using quasi experiment was employed to examine the effectiveness of the inquiry-discovery approaches. A total number of 81 science stream were students involved as the subject of this study. The instruments are the Chemistry Comprehension Test. There is questionnaire on the students' attitude towards the chemistry subject. Approximately, 40 students of the treatment group learned chemistry through inquiry-discovery approach while the other 41 students of control group received the lesson via the conventional approach. The data was analysed using the SPSS program. There were two types of statistics used namely, descriptive statistics and inferential statistics. The descriptive statistics involved the frequency and percentage to describe the sample while inferential statistics is the t-test to evaluate the hypothesis at a significant level of p < 0.05. The findings obviously show that there is a significant difference in the achievement of students as well as their attitude towards the chemistry lesson in both approaches. This study has proven that inquiry-discovery approach improving the students' performance as well as their understanding of the chemistry subject. This approach has also stimulated the positive attitude of students toward chemistry subject
