Online learning causes several problems such as low student academic achievement and interest in learning. Based on interviews with teachers at Muhammadiyah Pencongan Elementary School, the material that students do not understand is fractional operations. In fraction material, students are unable to compare simple fractions for fractions with different denominators. Therefore the gasing method is applied to third grade students at Muhammadiyah Pencongan Elementary School which aims to find out whether the mathematics learning outcomes of students using the gasing method are better then discovery learning. This research is a type of quasi-experimental research with a posttest only control group design. Data was collected using tests. Data were analyzed by mean difference test. After being analyzed, the average value of the experimental class student learning outcomes was 83.33 and the control class was 70. The results of the mean difference test show that there is a significant difference between the learning outcomes of the experimental class and the control class as indicated by a sign value of less than 0,05. Thus it can be concluded that the learning outcomes of students who use the Gasing method are better than the learning outcomes of students who use Discovery learning.
