This research found that the mean score of the pre-test of the academic achievement was 14.74 (S.D. 2.79), Whereas the mean score of the post-test of the academic achievement was 19.24 (S.D. 2.85). Importantly, the mean difference of the academic achievement between pre-and post-test of the students was statistically significant (P-valve 0.01). For the critical thinking and problem solving skills, The mean score of the pre-and post-test was 25.45 (S.D. 3.76), while the mean score of the post-test was 26.51. (S.D. 2.78).
