Abstract


This study aims to describe student’s mathematical problem
solving abilities with high, medium, and low emotional intelligence. The
type of this research is descriptive with qualitative-quantitative approach.
Subjects in this study were students of Class VII of SMPN 3 Maron which
amounted to 9 students. Data Obtained through questionnaires, tests, and
interviews. Data analysis techniques used are Likert scale, average and
percentage. The results showed the ability to solve mathematical problems
based on the stages of Newman items, namely: students with high levels of
emotional intelligence: (1) reading the problem, determining keywords, (2)
understanding the problem, determining sufficient conditions, necessary
terms and change the problem into the mathematical sentence, (3) the
problem of transformation, determining relevant strategy, (4) process skills,
executing strategy, (5) writing the answer, finding the answer and conclusion.
Students with moderate emotional intelligence: (1) reading the problem,
hesitating to determine keywords, (2) understanding the problem, being
able to determine sufficient conditions and necessary conditions but cannot
change the problem into mathematical sentences, (3) the problem of
transformation, relevant strategies, (4) process skills, being able to execute
the strategy but less accurate on the calculation process, (5) writing answers,
answers and conclusions are less precise. Students with low emotional
intelligence: (1) reading problems, not being able to determine keywords, (2)
understanding the problem, being able to determine sufficient terms and
conditions necessary but not yet able to change the problem into
mathematical sentences, (3) transformation problem, less relevant, (4)
process skills, many errors in the calculation process and did not complete
until the final stage, (5) writing answers, have not found answers and
conclusions.
