The Analysis on Students' Critical Thinking in Solving the Problem on One-Variable Linear Equation Based on Realistic Mathematics Education with Local Wisdom
MetadataShow full item record
Realistic Mathematics Education is one particular approach in which learning process involves the real world and surrounding, especially local wisdom, which is prevalent in every region. The present study was devoted to analysing students’ crit ical thinking in solving problem on one-variable equation. Through Realistic Mathematics Education with Local Wisdom, students in the study, totalling 36 subjects, had to solve problem on one-variable linear equation. Through qualitative approach, their performance was analysed to probe their critical thinking. The findings generated the following data on their critical thinking. The students, totalling 36 subjects, consisted of 17 male students and 19 female students. There were 7 students with exceptional critical thinking, 26 students with satisfactory critical thinking, and 3 students with moderate critical thinking. Based on the findings, the study concluded that the students’ level of crit ical thinking in solving problem on one-variable equation based on realistic Mathematics education with local wisdom is very satisfactory.
