Abstract


This study aims to describe the critical thinking skills of
homeschooling students in solving mathematical problems. The type of
this research is descriptive research with qualitative approach. Subjects in
this study were six students homeschooling is equivalent to junior high
school students class IX. Data were obtained through tests and interviews.
Test are identified and described in accordance with the achievement of
students towards critical thinking indicators used in this research that
clarification, assessment, strategy/ tactics, and inference. The results of the
interviews are used to further strengthen the data on homeschooling
students' critical thinking skills. The results showed that one
homeschooling student is in the category of less critical, four students are
on quite critical category and only one student in a critical category.
This suggests that homeschooling students' critical thinking skills are
low. Low critical thinking skills are affected by limitations homeschooling
student learning of mathematics is done, students 'mathematical ability and
mathematical learning processes that do not yet geared to developing
homeschooling students' critical thinking skills. So that based on the results
of this study are advised to make the learning process of mathematics to
develop homeschooling students' critical thinking skills.
