Analysis of Student’s Errors in Solving Mathematical Communication Problems

A Aini, B A Priatna, N Priatna


This research aims to analyze student’s errors in solving mathematical communication problems about Euclidean solid. The type of the research is descriptive in the form of case study. The technique of collecting data as follows: tests, interviews, and documentation. The subject in this research are students in grade eight. Based on the results of research the students errors such as: (1) errors to receive information of the problems (2) errors in applying
formula (3) errors related to the concept of euclidean solid (4) errors in calculating. The cause of errors made by students are they don’t carefully read and solve the problems, they lack understanding the concept of the prism, they doesn’t understand the elemen of pyramid, they don’t know how to calculate the pyramid surface area.
