Abstract

Kecemasan matematika adalah salah satu faktor yang mempengaruhi prestasi belajar matematika. Faktor tersebut dapat dipengaruhi oleh beberapa hal, baik berkaitan dengan faktor internal maupun faktor eksternal peserta didik. Dalam tulisan ini akan membahas tentang apa itu kecemasan matematika, indikator kecemasan matematika, dampak serta cara mengatasinya. Berdasarkan beberapa penelitian tentang kecemasan matematika, terlihat bahwa kecemasan matematika sangat berpengaruh negatif terhadap hasil belajar/prestasi belajar maupun berpengaruh terhadap kemampuan matematis peserta didik. Sebagai seorang guru atau calon guru juga harus mengurangi kecemasan matematika sehingga dapat mengurangi kecemasan matematika yang dimiliki oleh siswa. Sehingga pada saat memberikan pengajaran tidak terjadi kesalahan dalam penyampaian serta dapat mengurangi kecemasan matematika siswa. Seorang guru / pengajar harus mengerti tentang bagaimana indikator kecemasan matematika siswa, sehingga dapat mengatasi kecemasan matematika yang terjadi pada siswa.


Kata kunci: kecemasan matematika.


 


ABSTRACT


Math anxiety is one of the factors that affect mathematics achievement. These factors can be influenced by several things, both with regard to internal factors and external factors learners. In this paper will discuss what it is about math anxiety, math anxiety indicators, impacts, and how to overcome them. Based on several studies of math anxiety, math anxiety appears that negatively affect the results of the teaching / learning achievement and influence to the mathematical abilities of learners. As a teacher or prospective teacher should also reduce math anxiety so as to reduce math anxiety owned by students. So that when giving instruction error does not occur in the delivery and may reduce students' mathematical anxiety. A teacher / tutors should understand how math anxiety indicator of students, so as to overcome math anxiety that occurs in students.


Keywords: Math anxiety.
