Students’ Mathematical Connection Ability Through the Problem Posing Approach Based on Learning Styles

Meutia Meutia, M. Ikhsan, Bahrun Bahrun

Abstract


Mathematical connection ability is the ability to associate mathematical concepts both between topics in mathematics itself and to associate mathematical concepts with concepts in other fields. Without a mathematical connection, students must learn and remember too many separate mathematical concepts and procedures. Therefore, teachers in the learning process need to develop students' mathematical connection ability, for example through the application of a problem posing approach. This study aims to determine students' mathematical connection ability based on each student's learning style in mathematics learning. This research is a descriptive study that aims to describe the mathematical connection ability through a problem posing approach based on learning styles on quadrilateral material. The subjects in this study were students of class VII-2 of SMP 4 Banda Aceh who were selected based on fulfiling the four indicators, fulfilling some indicators and not fulfilling the indicators of mathematical connection ability. The data collection techniques used in this study were questionnaires, interviews and tests of mathematical connection skill. The data was analyzed by reducing data, presenting data and drawing conclusions. The results show that students who have a visual learning style fulfill their connection ability in mathematics, intertopic connections in mathematics, connections between mathematical material and other sciences besides mathematics, as well as connections between mathematics and everyday life. Students who have a visual learning style can write steps to solve problems systematically and can solve problems from all the test questions. Students who have an auditory learning style only master the connection indicators in mathematics and intertopic connections in mathematics. Students who have auditory learning styles can write steps to solving problems systematically but do not write complete solutions. Students who have a kinesthetic learning style fulfill connection skill in mathematics, intertopic connections in mathematics, and connections between mathematics and everyday life. Students who have kinesthetic learning styles prefer to think while doing something.
