On the basis of human observations, these medicinal plants have been discovered and are known to have a substance that is effective for preventing and treating illness and is capable of performing certain biological functions. However, information on the sorts of medicinal plants found in the area of UIN KHAS Jember is limited. This research tries to investigate medical plant species and plant components that may be utilized as medications. The qualitative descriptive method used in this study will characterize the medicinal plants discovered (taxonomy, family morphology, parts used, and how to use them). This investigation was carried out utilizing field survey and documentation techniques. As a result, 13 families with 16 species of medicinal plants may be found near UIN KHAS Jember. There are members of the <em>Annonaceae</em>, <em>Euphorbiaceae</em>, <em>Bromeliaceae</em>, <em>Solanaceae</em>, <em>Piperaceae</em>, <em>Lamiaceae</em>, <em>Zingiberaceae</em>, <em>Myrtaceae</em>, <em>Rutaceae</em>, <em>Moringaceae</em>, <em>Pandanaceae</em>, <em>Arecaceae</em>, and <em>Xanthorrhoeaceae</em> families, based on the identification findings. The most abundant medicinal plants in UIN KHAS Jember is the <em>Arecaceae</em> family with the species name <em>Cocos nucifera </em>L, which way to consume it is by drinking the water.</p> Nanda Amanatus Sholihah, Nur Millah, Sarah Qonita Lillah, Tiara Pratiwi Copyright (c) 2022 META: Journal of Science and Technological Education Fri, 30 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Online Learning Analysis of Education Statistics Department of Tadris Biology Faculty of Tarbiyah & Teaching Science UIN-SU Medan <p>During the Covid-19 pandemic, online learning is a solution in the world of education, including learning carried out by Tadris Biology students at UIN North Sumatra. This research focuses on education statistics courses conducted online. The data collection technique was carried out through a google form questionnaire and followed by a qualitative descriptive analysis. The research subjects were Biology Tadris students who were in the Even Semester of the 2022-2023 Academic Year who took education statistics courses with a total of 86 students as respondents. The purpose of this study was to determine the level of success in online learning of educational statistics. The results of student responses stated that online learning of educational statistics was not going well in terms of psychology and facilities, but in terms of educators (lecturers) it was good in online lectures with WhatsApp as a learning medium that was often used.</p> Agus Wahyuda, Ananda Putri, Siti Humairoh, Azzahra Putri Ramadana, Reni Rahayu, Rabiah Afifah Daulay Copyright (c) 2022 META: Journal of Science and Technological Education Fri, 30 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Profile of Biology Students' Learning Styles at UIN KHAS Jember <p>The Bioconservation course requires a great deal of contextual learning, enrichment, debate, and case studies in the field, hence it is taught in a blended learning format. If the teacher is aware of the student's learning styles, blended learning will be successful. As a result, knowing student learning styles is essential for the success of learning activities. A survey was utilized as the research technique, and the instrument was in the form of a closed angle. The information collected is quantitative. Percentages were used to examine the data. Respondents are State Islamic University KH. Achmad Shiddiq Jember class of 2020 Biology class 2 students enrolled in the Bioconservation course. The results of the study showed that students participating in the Bioconservation course had an auditive-visual learning style of 57.1%, followed by a visual, auditive learning style. Meanwhile, the visual-kinesthetic, auditive-kinesthetic and kinesthetic learning styles had the same percentage of 10.7%. Blended learning may be an option for accommodating different student learning styles. Journals are used by 85.7% of students as a source of learning, followed by books and internet references (learning websites), while 85.7% of students check for study references on their smartphones. The practice of students searching for reference materials on the internet through cellphones, as well as their learning style, has aided blended learning activities.</p> Annida Nur Izzatul Jannah, Naili ‘Atiqotul Maula, Putri Rizky Kurniasari, Wardha Kharisma Citra Copyright (c) 2022 META: Journal of Science and Technological Education Fri, 30 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Need Analysis of Animalia Learning Media for Class X at MA Miftahul Ulum Suren Jember After the Covid-19 Pandemic <p>This study aimed to investigate the degree of urgency of students' needs for Animalia learning media for class X students at MA Miftahul Ulum Suren Jember after the Covid-19 Pandemic. This study is a preliminary study from research and development (R&amp;D) that is carried out if there is a need for development. This study is confined to an analysis of requirements obtained from early field observations as well as a review of relevant literature. The data that has been obtained will be analyzed descriptively. The interview findings revealed that the tenth-grade teacher required learning media on animalia that were comprehensive, more practical, and capable of assisting pupils in overcoming difficulties, particularly in the aftermath of the Covid-19 Pandemic. The results of this study concluded that there is an urgent need for Animalia learning media at MA Miftahul Ulum Suren Jember after the Covid-19 Pandemic.</p> Moch Sofyan, Nanda Eska Anugrah Nasution Copyright (c) 2022 META: Journal of Science and Technological Education Fri, 30 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 An Analysis of Students' Interests and Biology Learning Outcomes in Offline Learning at SMA NEGERI 2 JEMBER <p>The goal of this research was to examine students' interests and learning results in a biology course at SMA Negeri 2 Jember using offline learning. This study is a qualitative descriptive study that employs a case study research technique. According to the findings of the questionnaire sent to students and instructors, 8 pupils and 2 teachers responded. The four markers of learning interest that are assessed are pleasure, interest, attention, and participation. The indicator of pleasure is a reasonably strong sign of learning interest since all students love engaging in biology lectures during offline learning because biology is relevant to daily life and can be done directly. The engagement indicator is the lowest of the indicators of student interest in learning because students in online learning lack the awareness to study independently at home because students spend a lot of time playing and do not study prior content that will be studied the following day.</p> Riskana Oktafia, Chairiyah Yuli Amartia, Fahmi Nur Ahsan Huda, Wasiatul Marhamah Copyright (c) 2022 META: Journal of Science and Technological Education Fri, 30 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Profile of Critical Thinking Students of Class X IPA SMA Al Hikmah Banyuwangi on Virus Material <p>Critical thinking is one of the higher order thinking skills (HOTS) required to make judgements and decisions in order to solve an issue in a thoughtful and sensible manner.
