Abstract - This study aims to determine the improvement of student critical thinking based on discovery learning usingmodules that help investigate questions that encourage questions about solubility and solubility results. The researchdesign used was the Non-Equivalent Post-test Group Design. The population in this study were students of class XI IPASMAN 1 Pariaman academic year 2018/2019. The selection of sample classes is done by cluster purposive samplingtechnique. The sample in this study was class XI IPA 1 as the control class and XI IPA 2 as the experimental class. Theexperimental learning class uses modules based on discovery learning withtechniques probing prompting, while thecontrol class without using modules. The research instrument used was a test of the results of learning critical thinkingquestions. The results of the study show that module based discovery learning withtechniques probing promptingcanimprove students' critical thinking skills, as evidenced by the average increase in posttest results. The results of testingfor normality and homogeneity state that the critical thinking value of the two distributed samples is normal andhomogeneous. Hypothesis test results obtained by GIS. (2-tailed) of 0.016 <0.05 means that the value of critical thinkinglearners who use modules is based on discovery learning bytechniques probing prompting differ significantly
