This study is done to explore learning difficulties when students are given trig problems in solving math problems. Learning difficulties that encounter during learning and results in less than optimal learning. Trigonometric materials given are just about the number and ratio of sine cosine. Trigonometric materials are given based on the results of a study in student mathematics problem. The ability to solve mathematical problems based on 4 indicators is to understand problems, plan ideas to use, solve problems and reexamine them. This research was tested in praise of the sophomores science class 2 MAN Cimahi. This method of research with qualitative research with students analyzes answer results. The results of this research have found some difficulty with learning problem-solving skills. As for the fourth problem he gave, many of the students had difficulty solving the trigonometry problem.

This study aims to reveal mathematical connections of elementary school teachers in solving trigonometric problem. The subjects of this study were 22 elementary school teachers as the prospective participants of Professional Teacher Education and Training (PTET). They came from several districts of South Sulawesi Province. The teachers were given trigonometry problem. Trigonometryproblemscould encourage teachers to connect geometrical and algebraic concept, graphical representation and algebraic representation, as well as daily life context. The result shows that most of the subject teachers of this study solved the problem according to procedures they know without considering everyday life context. On the other hand, there were some subjects who connected problem with everyday life context using graphical, verbal, or numerical representation. Thus, subjects who were able to connect problem information with appropriate concepts and procedures are categorized as substantive connections. While the subjects who were ableto connect problem information with mathematical concepts but less precise in using the procedure are categorized as classification connections.

This paper explored pre-service teachers' perceptions and knowledge of trigonometric concepts. Convenience sampling technique was used to select a sample of 200 (50 females, 150 males) second year science/mathematics pre-service teachers from two Colleges of Education in the Padangsidimpuan City. Trigonometry Perception Questionnaire (TPQ) and Trigonometry Assessment Test (TAT) were used to collect data on pre-service teachers' perceptions and conceptual knowledge of trigonometry. Data were coded and keyed into Statistical Package for Service Solutions (SPSS version 20) and analysed using descriptive statistics. The results suggested that pre-service teachers perceived trigonometry as abstract, difficult and boring to learn; and had limited conceptual knowledge of basic trigonometric concepts. Consequently, more that 65 % of them were unable to construct and reconstruct the appropriate mental structures for meaningful understanding to enable them respond to important basic trigonometry tasks. To achieve quality mathematics education, teacher educators must change their instructional practice and teach for understanding. Since understanding is the key to teacher's instructional actions, processes and knowledge, we recommend teaching trigonometry for understanding during teacher preparation.

Many people do not like learning Mathematics because it requires highly analytical skills to solve for only one problem. It also same in mastering the field of algebra, it’s already difficult, moreover to learn trigonometry which involves many calculations of formulas in the form of corners in the triangle. It’s really not easy because it allows the combination between algebra and geometry. Though, the universe of the world is full of models of trigonometry measurements, then by studying trigonometry means that we have applied much different knowledge. The student difficulties in understanding trigonometry material are seen when students are faced with trigonometry problems that require reasoning based from real life. Students have lack of opportunities to solve the problems with this type of reasoning is a factor that limits the opportunities and positive perceptions of students in learning mathematics. Based on research, by the development of trigonometry problems that are relevan...

This study is focused on investigating errors made by students and the various causal factors in working on trigonometry problems by applying sine and cosine rules. Samples were taken randomly from high school students. Data were collected in two ways, namely a written test that was referred to Polya's strategy and interviews with students who made mistakes. Students' errors were analyzed with the Newman concept. The results show that all types of errors occurred with a distribution of 3.83, 19.15, 24.74, 24.89 and 27.39% for reading errors (RE), comprehension error (CE), transformation errors (TE), process skill errors (PSE), and encoding errors (EE), respectively. The RE, CE, TE, PSE, and EE are marked by errors in reading symbols or important information, misunderstanding information and not understanding what is known and questioned, cannot change problems into mathematical models and also incorrectly use signs in arithmetic operations, student inaccuracies in the process of answering and also their lack of understanding in fraction operations, and the inability to deduce answers, respectively. An anomaly occurs because it turns out students who have medium trigonometry achievements make more mistakes than students who have low achievement.

This paper explored pre-service teachers' perceptions and knowledge of trigonometric concepts. Convenience sampling technique was used to select a sample of 119 (25 females, 94 males) second year science/mathematics pre-service teachers from two Colleges of Education in the Northern Region of Ghana. Trigonometry Perception Questionnaire (TPQ) and Trigonometry Assessment Test (TAT) were used to collect data on pre-service teachers' perceptions and conceptual knowledge of trigonometry. Data were coded and keyed into Statistical Package for Service Solutions (SPSS version 20) and analysed using descriptive statistics. The results suggested that pre-service teachers perceived trigonometry as abstract, difficult and boring to learn; and had limited conceptual knowledge of basic trigonometric concepts. Consequently, more that 50% of them were unable to construct and reconstruct the appropriate mental structures for meaningful understanding to enable them respond to important basic trigonometry tasks. To achieve quality mathematics education, teacher educators must change their instructional practice and teach for understanding. Since understanding is the key to teacher's instructional actions, processes and knowledge, we recommend teaching trigonometry for understanding during teacher preparation. Abstrak Penelitian ini mengeksplorasi persepsi dan pemahaman calon guru terhadap konsep trigonometri. Teknik convenience samping digunakan untuk memilih sampel sebanyak 119 calon guru sains/matematika tahun kedua (25 perempuan, 94 laki-laki) dari dua Sekolah Tinggi Pendidikan di Wilayah Utara Ghana. Trigonometry Perception Questionnaire (TPQ) dan Trigonometry Assessment Test (TAT) digunakan untuk mengumpulkan data tentang persepsi dan pengetahuan konseptual calon guru tentang trigonometri. Data dikodekan dan dimasukkan ke dalam Statistical Package for Service Solutions (SPSS versi 20) dan dianalisis menggunakan statistik deskriptif. Hasilnya menunjukkan bahwa calon guru menganggap trigonometri itu abstrak, sulit, dan membosankan untuk dipelajari; serta memiliki pengetahuan konseptual yang terbatas tentang konsep trigonometri dasar. Akibatnya, lebih dari 50% dari mereka tidak dapat membangun dan merekonstruksi struktur mental yang tepat untuk pemahaman yang bermakna sehingga memungkinkan mereka memberikan respon terhadap tugas trigonometri dasar yang penting. Untuk mencapai pendidikan matematika yang berkualitas, guru/pendidik harus mengubah kegiatan pembelajaran dan mengajar mereka agar mudah dipahami. Karena pemahaman adalah kunci untuk kegiatan pembelajaran, proses, dan pengetahuan guru, peneliti menyarankan untuk mengajar trigonometri dengan pemahaman konsep yang kuat selama program persiapan calon guru berlangsung.

In this research, the effect of mathematics teaching through Polya’s problem solving steps upon problem solving success of the elementary education 4th grade students was analyzed in terms of various variables. In the study, “pre-test and post-test control-group design” was used semi-experimentally as the research method. In semi-experimental designs, there is an experimental approach in which no random distribution is used for categorizing the individuals as experimental and control groups. However, the participants’ being at a fairly similar quality is regarded. The participants who participated into the study were selected among the 4th grade students studying at two state elementary schools in Adana province in 2014-2015 academic year creating one experimental group and one control group. The data collection tools were student information form and Problem Solving Success Determination Test prepared by the researcher under the control of an expert. Obtained data were transferred into the computer environment using SPSS 22 statistical software. During the data analysis, whether there was a statistical difference between post-test scores of the experimental and control groups was tested using independent groups t-test. For other comparisons, t-test and one-way variance analysis were performed. These results were concluded as result of the analyses. According to t-test results, problem solving success level did not differ significantly according to the age and gender of the students. Problem solving success level differed significantly according to the profession of mother and father. The problem solving success level did not differ significantly according to the socio-economic status of the family. Problem-solving success level significantly differed according to the educational status of mother; however, did not differ significantly according to the educational status of father. In terms of the analysis results on the difference in mathematical problem solving success of the students, it was concluded that success of the students increased in a problem solving process supported with activities and administered with Polya’s problem solving steps accurately.

This study explored the mathematical thinking on problem solving and self-regulation strategies of Filipino primary grade pupils in a school located in an urban area in Nueva Ecija, Philippines. The pupils solved arithmetic story problems in English. Results showed that the pupils were capable of solving story problems written in English and did much better when the problems were translated in Tagalog, their home language. They were able to solve multiplication and division problems prior to receiving formal instructions of these operations. Results also showed that the pupils employed self-regulated solution strategies like writing a number sentence, algorithm in subtraction, estimation, backward counting, trial and error, use of tally marks, making a drawing, skip counting, repeated addition, and invented algorithm. Because they were free to employ solution strategies of their own choice, invented algorithms and creativity came out from their works. The proficiency on the language...

It has become a fact that fluency and competency in utilizing the advancement of technology, specifically the computer and the internet is one way that could help in facilitating learning in mathematics. This study investigated the effects of Dynamic Geometry Software (DGS) and Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) in teaching Mathematics. This was conducted in Zamboanga del Sur National High School (ZSNHS) during the third grading period of the school year 2015-2016. The study compared the achievement and attitude towards Mathematics between those students taught with DGS and CAS and those students who were taught without DGS and CAS. A quasi-experimental pretest-posttest control group design was used with two groups which was matched according to their mathematical level. An achievement test was developed and administered to assess the students' achievement in Mathematics. Aiken's attitude scale was also used to assess the students' attitude towards Mathematics. The data were treated with One-Way Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) and t-test at 0.05 level of significance. The study revealed a significant difference between the mathematics achievement between students taught with DGS and CAS and those who were taught without it. The integration of DGS and CAS in Mathematics lessons leads to better academic achievement result compared with that of the conventional method of teaching. Moreover, there was no significant difference on the attitude level of the students between the two groups.

An endeavour to improve the quality of education have been made by improving the implementation of learning. The effort has not been enough to show satisfactory results. This can be seen from the mathematics learning achievement shown by the students still low. Based application PAMER UN 2017 by PUSPENDIK, Mathematics National Exam problems that have the lowest absorption is on trigonometry application. This study aimed to find out the errors of students in solving the HOTS type problem in the application of trigonometry. The type of this research is qualitative descriptive research.

To collect the data, this research conducted observations, tests, and interviews. Data analysis techniques include data reduction, triangulation of data that was compared with data result of observation, test, and result of interviews. The results of the analysis show there were three types of errors, namely error type I (understand the meaning of the problem), error type II (applying the concept), and error type III (calculating). The cause of student error type I was lack of understanding the meaning of the problem to make mathematical modeling. In the error type II, students have difficulties distinguishing between V-shaped depression and elevation, students were confused to use the concepts and formulas. Error type III is when the students were not precise in the calculations or in a hurry to do the problem.

Considering the low performance of Indonesian students in PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) survey in the period 2000-2012, the need of PISAlike tasks promoting mathematical literacyis important to be developed as learning resource for practisioners. For these reasons, this study aims to produce a set of PISAlike mathematics tasks which are valid, practical, and has the potential effect as well as explain the process of developing those tasks. Thus, we used the preliminary stages, and prototyping using formative evaluation (self evaluation, expert review, one-to-one, small group, and field test). A total of 67 students of senior high school students at Palembang and 12 experts were involved in the prototyping phase. Data collection techniques used are walkthrough, documentation, questionnaire, test results, and interviews. This study produced a set PISA-like math tasks as many as 12 items in the category of content, context, and process. The validity came from the experts who reviewed the prototype at this stage, while the practicality, particularly, obtained from the revised tasks in the steps of both ‘one-to-one’and ‘small group’. From the field test, we conclude that the tasks also potentially effect to the students’ mathematical literacy in activating the indicators of each FMC, i.e, communication, reasoning and argumentation, representation, mathematising, problem solving, and using formal/symbolic language and the students’ interest and seriousness when solving the tasks.

The study aimed to determine the performance of the students in the area of Mathematics particularly in Algebra and Trigonometry. The researchers used a retrospective study where documentary analysis in gathering the data was more appropriate. The data were gathered from the departmental examination given in Algebra and Trigonometry for the academic year 2011- 2013. The respondents of the study were the students who took both the two subjects. The results revealed that the students who took the subjects for the two academic years were not able to meet the required criteria. On the other hand, study techniques were the common factor that affects the performance of the students in Mathematics. The researchers formulated an action plan to enhance the students' performance and for the intervention program. The researchers recommended to organize periodic seminar and workshops for students, teachers and school administrators to promote positive attitude towards mathematics and to con...

Application of mathematical concepts in the real world requires the use of problem solving skill. The skill is also one of the important components in the learning of mathematics at upper secondary schools. In addition, the emphasis on mathematical problem solving skill in Malaysian system of education can result in the improvement in Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). The success of teaching and learning using problem solving is determined by students' behaviour. Thus, different forms of problem-solving questions allow careful observations to be done on students' behaviour. Consequently, the behaviour of successful and less successful students can be distinguished. Therefore, this study aims to determine how students' behaviour differs when they respond to mathematics questions in PISA. A method of data collection named as thinking aloud was conducted among six Form 2 students. The results of this study showed that successful students emphasised beha...

A positive learning experience stems from active engagement with the lesson and greater interaction in learning activities. This study investigated the types of learning experience of students in Bato School of Fisheries, Leyte, Philippines such as Hands-on, Minds-on and Authentic Learning. Also, the study analyzed the students’ level of achievement in learning mathematics under each type of learning experience. The study employed a random of 25% of the grade 7 students for experimental design that involves qualitative and quantitative approach. Result shows that the Hands-on learning experience of students is in beginning level which needs a proper guidance of the mathematics teacher. It is shown that students are more capable of Hands-on group activities in mathematics. For Minds-on learning experience, students are also in beginning level, however, it is found out that they are good in critical thinking processes which create and recreate mathematics concepts for the core topics....

This study aims to examine students’ mathematical literacy in solving PISA problems using the Indonesian cultural context. This is a descriptive study with a qualitative approach. As the subject of this study are three 9th grade students with high, average, and low mathematical abilities. In collecting the data, the researchers used three instruments, namely, mathematical ability test, mathematical literacy test, and interview guidelines. The results reveal that student with high mathematical ability meets all indicators in the process of formulating, employing, and interpreting. Otherwise, students with average or low mathematical abilities only meet some indicators in the process of mathematical literacy. Therefore, it is suggested for the teacher to provide practice especially for students having average or low mathematical abilities with literacy problems using contexts that exist in students’ life, such as the Indonesian cultural context
