Do we know what is Mathematical Attitude?


Rewritten by Marsigit

Katagiri (2004) elaborates that mathematical attitude consists of the following:

1). Attempting to grasp one’s own problems or objectives or substance clearly, by oneself
a)Attempting to have questions
b)Attempting to maintain a problem consciousness
c)Attempting to discover mathematical problems in phenomena

2). Attempting to take logical actions
a)Attempting to take actions that match the objectives
b)Attempting to establish a perspective
c)Attempting to think based on the data that can be used, previously learned items, and assumptions

3). Attempting to express matters clearly and succinctly
a)Attempting to record and communicate problems and results clearly and succinctly
b)Attempting to sort and organize objects when expressing them
c)Attempting to seek better things
d)Attempting to raise thinking from the concrete level to the abstract level
e)Attempting to evaluate thinking both objectively and subjectively, and to refine thinking
f)Attempting to economize thought and effort

    Terimakasih Bapak atas postingannya mengenai sikap matematis. Postingan ini sangat berguna bagi kami yang berada di dunia pendidikan matematika. Dengan postingan ini, kami jadi mengetahui apa-apa saja sebenarnya sikap matematis itu. Disamping postingan di atas, menurut saya karakter-karakter tertentu juga sangat dibutuhkan dalam sikap matematis. Karakter-karakter tersebut seperti teliti (cermat dalam berhitung untuk meminimalisasi kesalahan), pantang menyerah (tidak mudah berhenti dalam memecahka persoalan), jujur (apa adanya diri sendiri), mandiri (tidak bergantung pada orang lain dan percaya kepada kemampuan sendiri), dan menghargai orang lain (menerima pendapat orang lain dan tidak merasa diri selalu benar). Karakter-karakter tersebut ditambah 3 sikap matematis dalam postingan blog ini akan membuat seseorang mempunyai kesempatan yang lebih besar untuk berhasil dalam mempelajari matematika.
