The Structure Of Mathematical Reasoning In Mathematical Problems

[Full Text]



Hery Suharna, Idrus Alhaddad



Reasoning structures, mathematical problems, connective reasoning, inductive reasoning, and deductive reasoning.



The mathematic students (prospective teachers) often experience constraints when understanding math problems, one of them that they did mistake of constructing mathematical concepts. This thing was the causal factor when students solve math problems. These errors should not happen for a math student who later becomes a math teacher. Researchers wanted to reveal the problems in order to get a description of errors of constructing concept in overcoming the problems experienced by the student. Therefore, it is necessary knowledge of mathematical reasoning structure of student in solving math problem. Based on the problems and objectives of the study, this type of research is descriptive qualitative which aimed at describing the mathematical reasoning structure of students when solving math problems. The results of the study found some descriptions (1) students' mathematical reasoning that was connective, (2) inductive mathematical reasoning, and (3) deductive mathematical reasoning.
