Abstract

This research aims to describe the ability of students to solve mathematical problems using polya steps. The approach used in this study is a qualitative approach with research subjects in class VIII students of MTs Muhammadiyah Aimas Kab. Sorong. The research subjects are three students who have been selected based on their problem solving abilities which are categorized as one student with high ability, one student with medium ability and one student with low ability. Data obtained through interviews and three problem solving of geometry. The validity test used was the validity of the questions from the three questions each showed 0.817; 0.813 and 0.677 this means that the three items are feasible to use, while for the reliability test shows 0.784 it shows that the problem solving ability test is included in the high category. The results of research that have been done show that students who are highly capable can understand the problem, able to make the planning stage, able to solve the problem with the right steps, and able to check answers. Students who are capable are able to understand the problem, able to plan, able to solve the problem, but are unable to check the answers again. Then for low-ability students who have not been able to understand the problem, have not been able to plan, are still unable to solve the problem and are unable to check again.
