Abstract. This study aims to determine the effectiveness of the Integrative Learning model in improving the understanding of mathematical concepts. The integrative learning model is a learning model that aims to help students develop an in-depth understanding of building systematic knowledge that simultaneously trains their critical thinking skills by using a variety of thinking skills. This research is a quasi-experimental design used is Pretest-Posttest Control Group Design. This research was conducted in Senior High School (SHS) 6 Kendari class XI.2 as an experimental class and XI.4 as a control class. The experimental class is taught the integrative learning model, while the control class is taught by the direct learning model. The results of this study are: (1) the average understanding of mathematical concepts of students taught with integrative learning models increased from 60.56 to 77.61 and the average understanding of mathematical concepts of students taught with direct learning models increased from 60.11 to 68.87. (2) integrative and direct learning models are effective in increasing understanding of mathematical concepts, and (3) integrative learning models are more effective in improving understanding of mathematical concepts compared to direct learning models
