Students’ Difficulties Analysis in Solving Systems of Linearequations in Two Variables

Novianti Novianti, B A Priatna

Abstract


Learning how to solve mathematical problems has been a long withstanding difficulty faced by students and has been given constant focus in mathematical development. The aim of the study is to describe the difficulties of
students in solving the system of linear equations in two variables. The data source is 15 students of the grade VIII of high junior school. Data colleted through tests, and interviews. Data is processed qualitalively. The results showed that the difficulties in solving systems of linear equations in two variables in the form of difficulty has not mastered the material, less mastered the concept of linear equations in two variabels, and difficulty performing arithmetic operations. While the difficulties are in students, namely the lack of interest of students in learning
to improve their abilities and overcome their own difficulties.
