Abstract: Brain-based learning is a concept of strategy to create learning-oriented efforts to empower students’ brain potential. Project-Based Learning is a learning strategy that utilizes projects or activities as a center of learning. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of brain-based learning and project-based learning strategies on student mathematics learning outcomes, especially kinesthetic learning style groups. The quasi-experimental research method is post-test only design, retrieval of learning outcomes data with tests and learning styles using questionnaires and data analysis using ANOVA with t-Dunnet advanced tests. This study found that the mathematics learning outcomes of students who were taught using the Project-Based Learning strategy were higher than those taught by the Brain-Based Learning (BBL) learning strategy especially for students in kinesthetic learning styles. The suitability of investigative activities creates products in project-based learning with the characterization of students’ kinesthetic learning styles which are characterized by always touching certain information objects can strengthen the memory of meaningful information and knowledge so as to improve the quality of learning outcomes.
