Thinking Geometrically algebra problem


This study aims to determine how to solve problems algebra using thinking geometrically. Answer students explore the interview to find out the thinking of students in resolving problems. The research subject VII1 grade students high school. The study was conducted over four months. In solving the problems done think a loud and interviews conducted four times. After the interviews, the results obtained ajabar problem can be solved geometrically by the help of pictures.
