The Analysis Of Students’ Mathematical Problem Solving Difficulty In Problem Based Learning
The purpose of this study was to determine the difficulty of students in mathematical problems solving with the steps according to Polya, and determine whether the mathematical problem solving abilities of students using a model of Problem Based Learning (PBL) reached a value of completeness Minimum Criteria (KKM). The method used is experiment. The population is all students of 8th High School 6 Tasikmalaya in the academic year 2015/2016. Samples were taken one class randomly. The instrument used was a set of mathematical Problem Solving test. Data were analyzed by the average test of two parties. The results show the students’ difficulties in mathematical problems solving with the steps according to polya; 1) nearly half experiencing difficulties on steps to understand; 2) having difficulty in step of problem-solving plan included in the criteria of a fraction; 3) half experiencing difficulties on the steps to implement the plan settlement issues included on measures to re-examine the results included in the criteria of most of difficulties. The Students’ Mathematical problem solving in Problem Based Learning (PBL) reached a value of completeness Minimum Criteria (KKM).
