This study is a classroom action research that aims to enhance mathematics learning achievement of students in eight grades in one of the junior high school in South Sulawesi, Indonesia. The target of classroom action research is to overcome eighty percent of students reach learning score more than minimum completeness standard that is seventy five. This action can solve some problems such as low comprehension of prerequisite, poor understanding of the advantage and application of topic in daily life, fewer students for asking and arguing, noisy students talking out of topic, low enthusiasm to reply feedback, low confidence to present their opinions either writing or oral. The point of that action is to give a chance to the students to observing, questioning, associating, experimenting, and communicating. This research shows mathematics learning achievement of students in positive change. This research explains qualitatively by the change of students activities such as 1) the attention of students in teaching and learning process, 2) observe and complete the student worksheet, 3) ask and opine the teacher/ friends who have a presentation, 4) discuss in group, 5) the confidence of students to present their work group and to conclude the material, 6) the number of student who collect homework, 7) student can reflect their own study. By pay attention to mathematics learning achievement of students and student activities from the first cycle to the second cycle that implementation of scientific approach can enhance mathematics learning achievement of students in eight grades in one of the junior high school in South Sulawesi, Indonesia.
