In this study, we aimed to determine the influence of cooperative learning on student self-confidence and factors affecting learning physics. In order to reach specific goals, one month lasting pre-test and post-test controlled experimental work was carried out on 100 students all attended general physics course. Self-confidence of the students and importance of factors for the students were evaluated with a reliable Lykert Type Scale and t-test is applied to analyze. According to results, the experimental group enhanced their self-confidence and changed their ideas about importance of factors. However, no significant change is detected for control group.
