Student’s Difficulty Identification in Completing the Problem of Equation and Trigonometry Identities

Siti Maryam Rohimah, Sufyani Prabawanto

Abstract


This study aims to identify the types of difficulties experienced by high school students in solving equations and trigonometric identities. The method used in this research is descriptive qualitative research method because researchers want to describe or describe the facts of students' difficulties in solving equations and trigonometric identities. The data collection technique in this study is by using respondents' ability tests and interviews. Based on the results of data analysis, there are three aspects of students 'difficulties in solving trigonometric equations and also there are three aspects of students' difficulties in solving trigonometric identity problems. The difficulties of students in solving trigonometric equations, namely the difficulty of students in deciphering the form of the problem, difficulty in factoring in the form of trigonometric quadratic equations, and difficulties using the basic trigonometric equations. Whereas, the difficulties of students in solving trigonometric identity problems, namely the difficulty of students applying general trigonometry formulas, difficulty describing each of the trigonometric comparison relationships, and difficulties in performing algebraic calculations/computation.

Keywords
