Abstract


The purpose of this research is to analyze the students’ mathematical
communication in junior high school verbally as well as written by means the
approach of SAVI. This research uses qualitative approach with descriptive
research type. The subjects of this study totally 31 students of junior high
school on a class VIII, while the object is the students’ mathematical
communication, verbal as well as written using the approach of SAVI. The
instrument used in this study are observation and test sheets. The data will be
analyzed using three plots, namely: data reduction, data presentations and
summarizing. The result of this study shows that students’ verbal
communication in mathematics by means the approach of SAVI is in good
category. Students can finely declare the examples, explain mathematics
representations, give questions and answers, declare the situation of a
problem in mathematical model, discuss a problem, conclude the result of
the discussion and make summary related to the subject. The written
mathematical communication of students is also in good category. Students
can do well in writing mathematical ideas and representations, finding
important points, rewriting the test in mathematical model, finishing the
problem and wraiting the summary related to the subject.
