Abstract

As prospective primary school teachers, students in primary school teacher education study program (PGSD) should be able to work on the subject matter of Mathematics material correctly. However, it is still often heard that the students make mistakes in counting operations during their apprenticeship in elementary schools. The same thing was also revealed that when elementary school teacher candidates took the Civil Servant Candidate (CPNS) test, there were still many graduates who had errors in completing elementary school math problems. The study aimed to: (1) describe basic Mathematical abilities of final semester PGSD students at State University of Makassar, (2) know the description of elementary Mathematics material that is considered difficult by final semester PGSD students at State University of Makassar, (3) to investigate what factors affecting the basic Mathematical ability of the final semester PGSD students at State University of Makassar. This research is a descriptive qualitative with the type of case studies to analyze the description of PGSD students’ basic Mathematical ability in the academic year of 2018-2019. The population of this study was 302 students. The samples taken were 30% of the population, 105 people. For qualitative data collection, 18 respondents were interviewed. The average results of the Mathematical ability tests of final year PGSD students at State University of Makassar were 76.83 modes 80.00 with a standard deviation of 13.62.
