Revealing Mathematical Connection Ability Through Problem Posing Activities
This research aims to describe students’ mathematical connection ability through problem posing activities, as well as to offer problem posing activites as a mean to analysis mathematical connection ability. This qualitative research was conducted to 72 Grade 8 students of public junior high school. Research data was collected by using task problem posing with semi-sructured format and interview. The result of this research demonstrae that problem posing has capability to reveal mahematical connection ability. The majority of students posed application-level problem that only use single concept of. Whilst the analysis-level problems contain one mathematical concept, the synthesis-level problems contain multi concepts and multi steps where types of mathematical connection identified were procedural, property, and derivation.
