Abstract

Linear system is one of the important material in mathematics learning. But, students often find difficulties to solve about this material. In this research, researcher use limitation in linear system in three variables. This research is descriptive with a qualitative approach. The purpose of this article is to know the social science student with high intelligence's error in solving the linear system in three variables and what factors that impact it. The subject of this research were 23 students of favorite school. Data are collected by testing and interview. The error this research refer to Newman Error’ Analysis Model, reading, comprehension, transformation, process skill, dan encoding. Based on this study, it was found that students' errors in solving the linear system in three variables were certainly varied. Therefore, the teacher as a facilitator must guides students to avoid mistakes in solving word problems. The result of the study said that some students who get errors are because of a lack of understanding at the reading stage so that implies difficulty in the encoding stage. Another mistake found in social science students is calculation in process skills. From this data, we can conclude that the most error made by students is encoding error with percentage 57,5%. This encoding errors happened because the social students learning by memorizing.
