The Role of Cooperative Learning Type Team Assisted Individualization to Improve the Students' Mathematics Communication Ability in the Subject of Probability Theory
Tinungki, Georgina Maria
Journal of Education and Practice, v6 n32 p27-31 2015
The importance of learning mathematics can not be separated from its role in all aspects of life. Communicating ideas by using mathematics language is even more practical, systematic, and efficient. In order to overcome the difficulties of students who have insufficient understanding of mathematics material, good communications should be built in a learning process. Communication in general can be interpreted as a way to convey a message from the messenger to the receiver to inform opinions or behaviors either directly (oral) or indirectly through the media. In the communication process, we need to think on how to make the message understood by others. In order to develop the ability to communicate, people can communicate with a variety of languages including mathematical language. One of the subjects in the Statistics study program which requires mathematics communication ability is the Theory of Probability, which is categorized as a general skill subject that must be taken by all students of mathematics. Improving the students' mathematics communication ability should be hand in hand with the learning process. We can optimize the ability by implementing a learning model which gives chance for the students to discuss and to interact each other so that their mathematics communication ability improved, that is by using cooperative learning type Team Assisted Individualization (TAI).
