Abstract

The aim of this research is to analyze: 1) the influence of spatial abilities, visual thinking abilities and combinatorics abilities on students' problem solving abilities simultaneously and 2) the influence of spatial abilities, visual thinking abilities and combinatorics abilities on students' partial problem solving abilities. The population in this study were class X students of private and public high schools in Medan in the 2022/2023 academic year. The research sample was 123 students taken from 4 schools in Medan with the criteria of one superior school and one ordinary school from private or state schools based on the results of the 2022 LTMPT UTBK survey. The research instrument is a description test of three abilities and multiple choice tests for spatial abilities. Prerequisite tests, multiple linear regression models, basic linear regression models, correlation analysis, and determinant coefficients are the data analysis approaches used in this study.
