ELEMENTARY STUDENTS MATHEMATICAL PROBLEM-SOLVING VIEWED FROM INTERPERSONAL INTELLIGENCE

Desty Ratna Permataari, Heribertus Soegiyanto, Budi Usodo

 

Abstract

Problem-solving ability is one of the fundamental skills that must be mastered by students because problem-solving skills will help to solve problems in other subjects as well as everyday life. Therefore, the problem-solving ability is a common goal of learning mathematics. Success in mathematical problems solving is influenced by student abilities and skills in creating social relations. Student abilities and skills in creating social relations and to work effectively with others called interpersonal intelligence. This research aims to describe mathematical problem solving of elementary students used the descriptive qualitative method which data was collected through questionnaire, test, and interview. Results showed that students with high interpersonal intelligence could master four indicators of problem-solving, namely understand the problem, devise a plan, carry out the idea, and lock back. Students with average interpersonal intelligence can master understands the problem and design a plan indicator, but sometimes they can't carry out the plan correctly. Students with low interpersonal intelligence just understanding the problem, but they can't devise the plan well.

THE EFFECT OF USING RING THEORY MOBILE APPLICATION ON STUDENT INVOLVEMENT AND REASONING ABILITY

Sri Suryanti, Deni Sutaji

 

Abstract

This study aims to determine the influence of the use of ring theory mobile application on student involvement in learning and the students' reasoning ability. The subject of research is sixth-semester students who take the subject of Ring Theory that is 30 people. The research instrument used is observation sheet, student involvement questionnaire, and test questions to know students' reasoning ability. The research method used is descriptive quantitative to know the involvement of students, while to know the effect on students' reasoning ability used independent sample t-test with SPSS 15.0. The results showed that the use of ring theory mobile application caused a very positive engagement, from the overall indicator of student involvement in learning, gets an average score  4.74 (score range 1-5). Also, there was a significant influence of the use of ring theory mobile application on students' reasoning ability, which is 0.721

PISA-LIKE PROBLEMS USING THE CONTEXT OF SWIMMING SPORTS IN ASIAN GAMES

Eko Septiansyah Putra, Ratu Ilma Indra Putri, Ely Susanti

 

Abstract

This study aimed to produce items of PISA mathematics using the context of swimming sports that was valid, practical and had potential effects of the problem on students' mathematical literacy ability. The method used was designed research type development study. This method consisted of two stages, preliminary and formative evaluation. The data collection techniques used walkthrough interviews, documentation, and tests. The items were validated by four experts for the expert review and three students on one-to-one. The validity of this developed problem was seen from its compatibility with the PISA framework. Practicality seen from small group test results involved six students. The developed items were practical because they were easily understood and used by the students. The potential effects were identified based on the analysis of students' answers on the field test stage. The field test was conducted in SMA Negeri 1 Palembang for 31 students. The results of this study generated PISA-like problems using the context of swimming sports that were valid, practical and had potential effects on students' mathematical literacy skills. In this study, the students' mathematical literacy skills arose to include mathematical ability, reasoning and argumentation ability, and ability to choose strategies to solve problems

PISA TASK: WHAT IS THE WEIGHT OF A WEIGHTLIFTING DISC?

Dian Fitra, Ratu Ilma Indra Putri, Ely Susanti

 

Abstract

One way to improve the quality of mathematics learning in Indonesia, achievement in PISA in particular, is by conducting PISA related researches. This study aims to generate a valid, practical, and having potential effect PISA task using a weight-lifting context. It is design research in which the development process was done by the Tessmer's formative evaluation. The data were collected through walkthrough, interviews, documentation, and tests. The test items validation process involved three experts at expert review stage and three students in the one-to-one phase. The validity of the items was checked from its compatibility with the PISA framework regarding content, context, literacy process and level of questions. The practicality was examined from small group test results of the six students. The developed items are practical since students easily understand them and they are easy to use. The potential effects of the developed items were seen based on the capabilities students engaged in during their process of solving the given problem. The developed PISA task capable of generating fundamental mathematical competences, i.e., communication; representation; mathematization; reasoning and arguments; choosing strategies to solve problems; using language and symbolic, formal and technical operations.

PISA-LIKE MATHEMATICS PROBLEMS USING AQUATIC CONTEXT IN ASIAN GAMES

Levana Maharani, Ratu Ilma Indra Putri, Yusuf Hartono

Abstract

This study aimed to create mathematical problems of uncertainty and data contents in PISA using aquatic context that were valid, practical and had the potential effect. This study was designed to the research of development study. The subjects in this study were tenth-grade students of Indo Global Mandiri senior high school Palembang consisting of 20 students. Data were gathered by means of interviews, observation, and tests. The results of data analysis showed that there were 8 valid and practical items of PISA type of uncertainty and data contents obtained using aquatic contexts in Asian Games. It was concluded that 11 out of 20 students showed reasoning skills and good arguments and 9 out of 20 students showed reasoning skills and arguments but incomplete, this was because they were not used to solving PISA type problems in learning.

A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF QUADRILATERALS TOPIC CONTENT IN MIDDLE SCHOOL MATHEMATICS TEXTBOOKS BETWEEN MALAYSIA AND SOUTH KOREA

Abdul Halim Abdullah, Bomi Shin

Abstract

This study compares Malaysian and Korean geometry content in mathematics textbooks to help explain the differences that have been found consistently between the achievement levels of Malaysia and Korean students in the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). Studies have shown that the use of textbooks can affect students’ mathematical achievements, especially in the field of geometry. Furthermore, to date, there has been no comparison of geometry content in Malaysian and Korean textbooks. Two textbooks used in the lower secondary education system in Malaysia and South Korea were referred. The topic of quadrilaterals was chosen for comparison, and the topic’s chapter in the Korean textbook has been translated into English. The findings show four main aspects that distinguish how quadrilaterals are taught between the two countries. These aspects include the composition of quadrilaterals topics, the depth of concept exploration activities, the integration of deductive reasoning in the learning content and the difficulty level of mathematical problems given at the end of the chapter. In this regard, we recommend the Division of Curriculum Development of the Malaysian Ministry of Education reviews the geometry content of mathematical textbooks used today to suit the curriculum proven to produce students who excel in international assessments.
