Transition Process of Procedural to Conceptual Understanding in Solving Mathematical Problems
International Education Studies, v9 n9 p182-190 2016
This article aims to describe the transition process from procedural understanding to conceptual understanding in solving mathematical problems. Subjects in this study were three students from 20 fifth grade students of SDN 01 Sumberberas Banyuwangi selected based on the results of the students' answers. The transition process from procedural to conceptually based on three aspects: (1) identify problems in the use of an algorithm, (2) the process algorithm, (3) connect multiple concepts to transform into another shape through the symbolic/picture representations. The results showed that the majority of students (18 students out of 20 students) only meets two (2) aspects of 10 students (50%) can identify the algorithms and the use of algorithms, 8 students (40%) able to use algorithms and connect with other forms. While other students (two students from 20 students) of 10% that meet only three aspects of the transitions. Thus, understanding the procedural has an important role in developing a conceptual understanding. Because the component/aspect of procedural understanding exist on components/aspects of conceptual understanding. Thus, the association acquired several components/aspects that support the process of transition from procedural understanding to a conceptual understanding.
