The purpose of this research is to examine the study results of a novel problem-posing improvement in mechanics of materials. The new technique is called local wisdom based problem posing (LWPP). In addition, it aims at scrutinizing the results of study between groups of students who have high motivation and low motivations. Moreover, it also observe the interaction of the study approach and students’ motivation towards the results of study. For the purpose of this research, experiment methods were employed. An analysis of variance (ANOVA) two way was used to test the hypothesis. This research is a method to test the difference mean value between A and B. The results show that there are significant differences in learning outcomes between problem-posing group and the conventional group. There are also significant differences in learning outcomes between groups of students with high motivation to the low ones. This results shows that students’ motivation plays an important role in determining treatment of learning model and learning out-comes. Moreover, there is no interaction between the learning models with the students’ motivation towards the results of the study.

Keywords – Local wisdom, Problem posing, Students’ motivation, Learning outcomes.
