This study was intented to investigate the development of students' mathematical logical thinking ability and self-regulated learningthroughProblem-based Learning (PBL). This study was a part of a master thesis and a sub-studyof a Postgraduate Research Grant from DGHE in 2013. This study was a pre-testpost-testquasi-experimental control group design involving 93 eleventh-gradestudents of a senior high school in Karawang which were chosen puposively.The instrumentsof this study were an essay

The study revealed that students getting treatment on PBL attained better grades on mathematical logical thinking ability than students taught by conventional teaching, though the grades were at low level. However, there was no difference in gradesof self-regulated learning between students in the two groups though thegrades were fairly good. Also, there was no correlation between mathematical logical thinking ability and self-regulated learning with students' positive opinions toward PBL.
