Abstract

This article aims to explore a possible criterion of digital technology mathematics teachers’ professional development[1]. The criterion was canvassed through qualitative exploratory study which involve a hybrid model of DigiTech TPD, online published articles of related TPD, and theoretical perspective which relate to digital technology in mathematics education. Related frameworks (Drijverset al, 2010; Trocki & Hollebrands, 2018) and content analysis were utilized to analyze the first two data. Theoretical perspectives of digital technology in mathematics education were accounted to reflect prior data and explore the criterion. We found that the current TPD[2]has not developed the knowledge of task design and supported teachers' roles in orchestrating technology-rich mathematics teaching as seen in the low level of tasks and teachers' orchestration in the classroom. Related articles on TPD in Indonesia show that the programs have not touched decisive factors of successfully implementing digital technology. An alternative criterion for DigiTech TPD is explored which includes three aspects namely theoretical approach, model and content. It could be alternative point of departure for designing and conducting DigiTech TPD in Indonesia.

Abstract

This study aims to reveal thinking profile and problem solving ability of mathematics department students of Universitas PGRI Semarang in solving plane problem by providing scaffolding. Type of this study is a qualitative research. The selection of research subject is based on students’ ability, feedback from lecturers and fluency both in oral or writing. Data collection technique used is Think Aloud Method. The results of the study provide an overview that after being given scaffolding, students with intermediate level of mathematics have characteristics: using the assimilation thinking process in understanding the problem, using assimilation and accommodation in planning to solve the problem. The students with lower level  of mathematics, they use assimilation thinking process in understanding the problems and planning the settlement whereas they are not able to use accommodation thinking process.  Students’ inability in accommodation thinking process causes they can not make solution planning correctly, solve the given problems and checking the solutions. The study shows the students experienced a lot of thinking process development since they have been able to use all of information for solving the problems. The number of the given scaffolding depends on individuals and the level of students’ tinking ability.

Abstract

This research aims at ascertaining kinds of students' difficulties and factors causing students' difficulties in solving mathematics problems of national examination towards students grade IX MTs Darul Huda Year 2015/2016. This research is a qualitative descriptive research. The research subjects were 6 students grade IX of MTs Darul Huda Sugihwaras having difficulties in solving problems in mathematics. The technique of collecting samples in this research was conducted by purposive sampling technique. The subjects were chosen based on data provided by a mathematics teacher of grade IX and tryout result. The methods of collecting data which were applied were essay test, interview, documentation, and questionnaire. The data analysis was conducted by quantitative and qualitative analysis. The result shows that, (1) kinds of difficulties encountered by students are (a) Difficulty in understanding problems is 20%, with an indicator that students misunderstand the problems. The cause is the low basic concept of mastery;(b) Difficulty in applying formula is 36.67%, with an indicator that students make mistakes in applying formula. The cause is students do not recognize formula which must be applied in solving problems, students do not know formula which must be used. (c) Difficulty in solving problems is 30%, with an indicator that students make mistakes when solving problems. The cause is students do not know steps in solving problems. (d) Difficulty in drawing conclusion is 15%, with an indicator that students make mistakes due to carelessness in solving problems. The cause is students are slipshod in understanding problems and in remembering formula. The factor causing students' difficulties is the low students' interest towards mathematics since media/props provided by teachers are not applied optimally yet.

Abstract

This research aims to investigate the use of fractional cards on teaching in the fifth grade students of Elementary School. The method used is descriptive qualitative. The researcher used observation, interview, and documentation to collect the data. The results showed that there was an increase on the students enthusiasm for learning process, and there were 27 students (69.23%) that have a score above the Minimum Criteria of Mastery (Kriteria Ketuntasan Minimal/KKM). The study concludes that the use of fractional cards able to help the learning process on the fractions material of the fifth grade students of Elementary School.

Abstract

The aim of this research is knowing whether research instrument is feasible or no to get data of research. The instrument of this research is logical mathematics quotient test with 25 problems in multiple choice and mathematics problem solving test with 4 questions in essay.  Testing the appropriateness of instrument of logical mathematics intelligence consist of content validity, level of problem difficulties, power differentiator, and reliability. Meanwhile, testing the appropriateness of instrument of mathematics problem solving use content validity. The validator for both of logical mathematics intelligence test and mathematics problem solving test is expert judgement. There are 39 students of Senior High School as respondent who are joining instrument try out. The results of appropriateness of instrument show: 1) there are 25 questions of logical mathematics quotient instrument which are feasible to take research data, and 2) instrument of mathematics problem solving in linier equation system material is feasible to use with some revisions from expert judgment.

Abstract

Differential equations is a branch of mathematics which is closely related to mathematical modeling that arises in real-world problems. Problem solving ability is an essential component to solve contextual problem of differential equations properly. The purposes of this study are to describe contextual teaching and learning (CTL) model in differential equations course, to improve lecturers’ abilities in implementing CTL, and to improve students’ problem solving ability in differential equations. The study was conducted in the fifth semester of 2015/2016 academic year with 34 students of mathematics education Universitas Muhammadiyah Surakarta as participants. The CTL model was applied by lesson study approach which involved three stages namely plan, do, and see in each cycle. This research was conducted in four cycles. The study results found that discovery-based CTL could be applied in differential equations course. The lecturer abilities to design discovery-based contextual learning plan, to present real-world problem in learning process, to design learning strategy and assessment instruments of problem solving improved significantly. Problem solving ability of students also improved during teaching and learning process.
