Abstract

ABSTRAK

Matematika merupakan ilmu dasar yang tentang logika mengenai bentuk, susunan, besaran dan konsep-konsep berhubungan lainnya. Kemampuan untuk memecahkan masalah pada dasarnya merupakan tujuan utama proses pembelajaran matematika. Tujuan dari penelitian ini adalah untuk mengetahui (1) apakah terdapat perbedaan kemampuan pemecahan masalah matematika pada setiap rentang usia dan (2) bagaimana gambaran kemampuan pemecahan masalah matematika pada setiap rentang usia. Metode yang digunakan dalam penelitian ini adalah metode penelitian kuantitatif dengan pendekatan penelitian survey. Instrumen dalam penelitian ini adalah kuesioner berisi 3 soal pemecahan masalah matematika yang berkaitan dengan kehidupan sehari-hari yang diunggah ke google form. Banyaknya orang yang mengisi survey pada google form adalah 2085 orang. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa (1) terdapat perbedaan kemampuan pemecahan masalah matematika pada setiap kelompok rentang usia, dan (2) kelompok rentang usia yang memiliki kemampuan pemecahan masalah tertinggi adalah usia 43-48 tahun, sedangkan kelompok rentang usia yang memiliki kemampuan pemecahan masalah terendah adalah usia 55-60 tahun.

 

ABSTRACT

Mathematics is a basic science which is about logic regarding form, structure, quantity and other related concepts. The ability to solve problems is basically the main goal of the mathematics learning process. The purpose of this study was to determine (1) whether there are differences in math problem solving abilities in each age range and (2) how to describe the ability to solve math problems in each age range. The method used in this research is quantitative research methods with a survey research approach. The instrument in this study was a questionnaire containing 3 mathematical problem solving questions related to everyday life which were uploaded to Google Form. The number of people who filled out the survey on the google form is 2085 people. The results showed that (1) there were differences in math problem solving abilities in each age range group, and (2) the age range group that had the highest problem solving ability was 43-48 years old, while the age range group that had the lowest problem solving ability was 43-48 years old. 55-60 years old.
