The purposes of this research include (1) to develop analytical thinking skills and achievement in Geography of Mattayomsuksa 2 students by using Problem-Based Learning activities on the 75/75 efficiency criterion. (2) to find the effectiveness index of Problem-Based Learning activities. (3) to compare the results of analytical thinking skills and achievement in Geography to the criteria of 75 percent. And (4) to study the contentment of Problem-Based Learning activities. The sample group was grade 2 of 42 primary school students from Mahasarakham University Demonstration School, Faculty of Education, Mahasarakham University, during the second semester of the 2019 academic year. The instruments which were used in the study consisted of lesson plans, analytical thinking skills test, learning achievement test and satisfaction questionnaire. Statistics employed for analysis of data included mean, percentage, standard deviation, and t-test (One sample).

        The results of the study were as follows (1) The use of Problem-Based Learning activities that the effectiveness index reached the efficiency at 84.46/77.76 which met the established criterion of 75/75. (2) The effectiveness index of the use of Problem-Based Learning activities is reached 0.5066 or the percentage of 50.66. (3) The result after using the developing analytical thinking skills and achievement in Geography of Mattayomsuksa 2 students by using Problem-Based Learning activities showed that the scores were significantly higher than 75 percent at 0.05 level. And 4) the contentment of Problem-Based Learning activities was in high level at 4.24
