Case of Actualizing Geometry Knowledge in Abstraction Thinking Level for Constructing a Figure
Case of Actualizing Geometry Knowledge in Abstraction Thinking Level for Constructing a Figure

Nur NOOR [1] , Fiki ALGHADARI [2]


The purpose of studying geometry is for the development of student thinking, able to abstract and reason, against concepts in the object. Note on some study results that the combination of the student's conceptualization process and knowledge of geometry are a source of barriers to their learning. This study aims to investigate how students actualize their geometry knowledge for the development of thinking to the level of abstraction. Investigations on input, internal processing, and output. This study was conducted on high school students use questions regarding object and product of thought in geometry thinking at analysis and abstraction level. Based on study findings, students actualize their knowledge through figural aspects then developed into the conceptual aspect, and the two aspects are integrated with the relationship between properties. There is a mathematical connection to the integration process. However, because most students' understanding of geometry knowledge is still prototypical figural concepts, so there is an interaction issue between figural and conceptual aspects, namely the validity of relationship between properties. Therefore, students learn geometry in order to investigate the connections between objects and properties as a whole.
