## Abstract

This research has two purposes.1) Applying a verbal problem-solving model to Al Manar Middle School students in pairs to determine the students' problem-solving abilities. 2) Determine the student's difficulty in completing the math problem-solving ability test. This test teaches students to apply problem-solving learning by thinking aloud in pairs. The study described here is of a descriptive qualitative nature. Class VII children participated in a study conducted during T.A. 2021/2022. As a result, we found the following:1) Intermediate and high-achieving students had the highest level of mathematics problem-solving ability, followed by low-ability students' mathematics problem-solving ability. 2) Degree of Difficulty of Tasks Students have no problem with tasks classified as high level. Students who fall into the middle category have difficulty understanding basic concepts and become confused when trying to solve problems. Students fall into the bad category if they struggle on all indicators of their problem-solving skills.
