Many successful students complete their assignments and do well on tests, yet they don’t ever learn to think critically and deeply. Our schools turn out students who think too superficially, staying on the surface of problem rather than stretching their minds and becoming deeply engaged in meaningful thinking. Teacher should guide students to be better thinkers. Problem-Based Learning (PBL) method is one way to encourage students to think critically. The problem which is investigated in this research is the implementation of problem-based learning method to improve student’s ability in critical thinking in physics. The subject of this research is the students of class XII IPA-1 at MAN 8 East Jakarta. To solve this problem, the researcher using classroom action research (CAR) design. Kurt-Lewin model’s CAR involves four steps, Planning, Action, Observing and Reflecting in every cycle in this research. All of data from this research is analyzed by descriptive statistic. The increassing score of student’s test from 6.2 to 7.5 (21%) is significant improvement from the beginning to the end of the cycle. The questionnaire has showed that all of students (100%) enjoy PBL method. Besides, they can think better in critical way, and understand instruction better. Although 18% students feel that Problem-Based Learning method is uneasy, it can improve the ability in critical thinking of the students.
