Abstract

This study intends to examine the variations in students' study habits and mathematical communication skills between those who received guided discovery learning and RME learning, as well as the impact of learning models and early mathematics skills on students' study habits and mathematical communication skills. 132 students from four classrooms in class VIII at SMP-IT Jabal Noor participated in the study during the odd semester of the 2023–2024 academic year. The class VIII-C and VIII-D made up the research sample, which was selected at random. A guided discovery learning model is used with the second experimental class, while a realistic mathematical education model is used with the first experimental class. The tool comprises of a questionnaire on students' study habits and an assessment of mathematics communication abilities. Two-way ANOVA was used with other methods of data analysis. The findings demonstrated variations in the improvement in mathematical communication abilities, with the average before treatment being 62,13 (RME) and 61,8 (PT), and after treatment being 81,53 (RME) and 77,2 (PT), with the computed fvalue being 13,822 larger than 3,16 in the ftable.
