Introduction

Science have an important role in the world today and the future. The science involves everyone both the daily and professional services as well as technology and various productivity tools many people used to facilitate life and work. These are the result of scientific knowledge combined with creative and other disciplines. The purpose of science have made students to learned science on the links with the knowledge and process involved in the learning process. It made with real action to suit a variety of levels. [1]

The development of teaching so that students acquire knowledge the skills and scientific attitude have higher achievement can arrange for students to participate in most activities and take action on their own. Teachers are those who have a critical role in promoting learning and development activities for the students to learn science process skills and have fun in learning science to achieve the goals set course. [2]

Science process skills is a key factor in the study of scientific knowledge because scientific knowledge gained from the study at different times, it is reliable or not. Apart from the study will be used, how reliable it. Researcher will have to learn the skills or the ability to perform the study at that time a smooth transition. The information in each step is reliable and because we think human beings have different aptitudes and abilities innate inborn but that does not mean that the difference will not be updated or developed. The current study found that the ability or skills can practice and develop to achieve it. Therefore, the development of science process skills to learners achieve proficiency. Optional skills to properly solve each side, it can be done as well. It is evident that developing science process skills to the learners. Teachers will find a way to develop students' skills in the various fields. The students learning by choosing the right way and can solve problems that occur. [3]

Organic chemistry is the study many properties of substance has a carbon atom is the main component. Organic refers to the body or the life of the organic matter is a story that involves the creature. The study of these substances are essential to the development of industry and technology. In addition, studies to understand the properties should be understood that the bonding between atoms of the molecule's shape. To understand the properties of organic matter deeply. In the process of teaching the course in organic chemistry, it is important to make the students' attention. And learning increase the knowledge can be adapted to everyday life can be. [4]

Peer-Assisted Technique, This is a way of learning to help each other to process of working together allow students to share their learning in the interdependent. Thus, researcher use it to provide students with the knowledge and understanding of the content can apply their knowledge to help explain and exchange with weak academic performance to achievement of better. [5]

Previously, the researchers conducted a study on the teaching of Inquiry. The Inquiry is a process or technique of teaching the students to focus on one form of self-knowledge using the scientific process as a means to acquire new knowledge. After teaching teacher evaluation by commissioning the exercises and tests showed that some students can not do the exercises and exams have not passed a certain threshold. This problem is due to some students who learn slowly. And the ability to learn as well so I had to find a way to motivate students to be interested and encourage students to be more active. Peer-Assisted Technique is a way to help support such an approach is the one, the friend has a key role in learning. Friends and influential in creating interest, motivation and recognition of friends together. Peer-Assisted Technique is the group activities, learning in small groups or studying together a handy way to identify good academic help friends to make a weak academic performance improves. …
