Analysis of students' representation skills on geometry material viewed from the spatial intelligence level
AIP Conference Proceedings
This study aims to analyze the student's mathematical representation skills viewed from spatial intelligence. In this descriptive qualitative study, the selection of the subject was based on the results of the spatial intelligence test which was categorized into high, moderate, and low with three students of each category. The subject selection technique used in the study was purposive sampling. The study was conducted in State Senior High School 1 Pulokulon. The main instrument is the
... r. The data were collected through tests and interviews. It also used the triangulation method. The results showed that students with high spatial intelligence tend to solve geometry problems using visual representation because students who have spatial intelligence are easier to imagine or visualize problems using images. Meanwhile, students with moderate spatial intelligence tend to use verbal representations because their ability to visualize is still slightly lacking, resulting in mathematical models to be used is also less precise. Then, students with low spatial intelligence tend to use symbolic representation skills because their understanding of mathematics is still very lacking.
