Acceptance Finding Ability (AFA) Of Elementary School Students

[Full Text]



Isrokatun, Budi Sigit Purwono



Acceptance Finding Ability (AFA), Elementary School Students, Mathematical CPS Problems, Various Answer



Generally, learning process that occurs in class is that students are given exercises and then they work on the formula given by the teacher. This work process is more on the process of how students use the formula. If a formula in mathematics is only given instantaneously by the teacher to his or her students, then it persistently will not provide the real learning process. Students only become recipient objects of knowledge. This is what makes acceptance finding ability (AFA) of elementary school students low. This research employs ADDIE (Analyzing, Designing, Developing, Implementing, and Evaluating) method, which aims at describing the acceptance finding ability of the students. Subjects in this research were elementary students aged 10-12 years. The results of this research stated that students' acceptance finding ability still needs to be continuously developed by giving non-routine problems, open problems, and complex problems. These problems will require students to think divergently-convergently.
