mathematical communication, logical thinking, mathematical literacy.



This research paper aims to describe the influence of mathematical communication skills, logical thinking towards mathematical literacy skills in students grade V of elementary School in Somba Opu Sub-district, Makassar. This research paper uses the ex-post facto design. The instruments used are mathematical communication tests, logical thinking tests and mathematical literacy tests. Research sample is 316 students grade V of elementary School. The research data is analyzed with descriptive and inferential statistics. Descriptive analysis includes mean, median, variance, skewness, kurtosis, minimum value, maximum value and frequency distribution. While for inferential analysis used double linear regression analysis because researchers want to test whether there is a influence of mathematical communication skills, logical thinking towards mathematical literacy skills. Based on data analysis results, acquired t-count 9.298 > 1.967 with a significance of 0.000 < 0.05 so that it can be concluded that mathematical communication is influential towards mathematical literacy. While for the variables of logical thinking acquired t-count 8.606 > 1.967 with significance 0.000 < 0.05 so that it can be concluded that logical thinking affects the mathematical literacy. Furthermore, obtained F-count 221,312 > F-table 3.03 with significance 0,000 < 0.05 hence it can be concluded that the ability of mathematical communication and logical thinking of students jointly affects the students’ mathematical literacy skill.
