Abstract


Abstract: Mathematical connection is used for problem solving. Students’ mathematical connection can be viewed while solving word problems. This study aims to describe mathematical connection process of junior high school student in solving word problems. The type of this study is a case study. Student’s connection data was collected by using test and interview. Furthermore, students’ mathematical connection process was analyzed based on three types of connection; modelling connection, concept connection, and procedure connection. The result of this study indicated that student utilizes all known information and connects all of the given information, therefore the relevant answer is obtained. This study reveals that mathematical connection process is shown by students’ ability to translate the problem into mathematics models and connect mathematical concept and procedure.

 Abstrak: Koneksi merupakan salah satu alat yang digunakan untuk pemecahan masalah. Koneksi matematis dapat dilihat ketika siwa menyelesaikan soal cerita. Penelitian ini bertujuan mendeksripsikan proses koneksi matematis siswa SMP dalam menyelesaikan soal cerita. Jenis penelitian yang digunakan adalah studi kasus. Data koneksi siswa dikumpulkan melalui tes dan wawancara. Selanjutnya, proses koneksi matematis siswa dianalisis berdasarkan tiga tipe koneksi, yaitu koneksi pemodelan, koneksi konsep, dan koneksi prosedur. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa  siswa dapat menggunakan semua informasi yang diketahui dan menghubungkan informasi tersebut sehingga diperoleh jawaban yang relevan. Proses koneksi matematis siswa ditunjukkan dengan kemampuan menerjemahkan soal ke dalam bentuk matematis dan kemampuan menghubungkan konsep dan prosedur matematika.
