Abstract

This study aims to analyze: (1) the level of difficulty in understanding students' mathematical concepts on integer material in terms of students' metacognitive abilities; (2) describe the process of students' answers in understanding students' mathematical concepts on integer material in terms of students' metacognitive abilities. This research is a qualitative research with a descriptive approach. The instrument of this research is the ability test of Concept Understanding, Learning Implementation (RPP), Student Books, and Student Worksheets (LKPD). From the results of the study, it was found that: The level of understanding the concept in terms of students' metacognitive abilities from 25 students with 'high' abilities as much as 8%, namely 2 students, then 'medium' abilities as much as 40%, namely 10 students. Then, the 'low' ability was 28%, namely 7 students, and the 'very low' ability was 16%, namely 4 students.
