http://usnsj.com/index.php/JME/article/view/2.2.52-58
The students' understanding ability is still relatively low, caused by the quality of mathematics learning in the classroom, so students feel bored in learning mathematics, passive students in learning, students are not independent in constructing knowledge and students are not trained to develop the ability to think. Learning model that is expected to be good for applied to learning mathematics and in order to encourage the emergence of students' understanding in mathematics is Problem Based Learning and Teams Games Tournament model. The purpose of this study is to improve the students' understanding in mathematics through the application of Problem Based Learning and Teams Games Tournament Model. This research is experimental research with preetest-postest design group design. The population of this study is all students of class XI SMKN 4 Kendari, the research sample taken two classes with purposive sampling technique and the determination of experimental class and control class chosen at random. First experimental class got model of Problem Based Learning Learning (PBL) and second experiment class got cooperative learning model Type Teams Games Tournament (TGT). The research instrument used is pretest and postes Mathematical Understanding. The data obtained were analyzed descriptively qualitative and t-test. Based on the results in data analysis can be concluded that: 1) There is improvement of students' understanding in mathematics through PBL model .2) There is an improvement in students' mathematical understanding through TGT model. 3) There is a difference in students' mathematical understanding improvement among those taught by PBL and TGT model.Sur Rasyid

http://usnsj.com/index.php/JME/article/view/2.2.59-65
This research method was Experimental Research. The Research aimed at determining whether there were differences on the student learning outcomes taught by cooperative learning model Teams Games Tournament type (TGT) and the students who were taught by cooperative learning model Talking Stick type (TS). This research was conducted at class VIII SMP Negeri 2 Kolaka in the academic year 2016/2017 consisting of 8 classes with total students was 199 students. VIII<sub>5</sub> Class was the first experimental class taught by cooperative learning model TGT type and VIII<sub>3</sub> Class was the second experimental class taught by cooperative learning TS type. <strong> </strong>Technique of Data Analysis used descriptive statistics and inferential statistics. The research findings were: (1) Mathematics learning outcomes of students taught by cooperative learning model TGT type consisting of 28 students obtained mean = 81,29, median = 84, mode = 85, standard deviation = 8,814, and variance = 77,693 . In addition, 23 of 28 students (82.15%) had learning outcomes above KKM = 75, and 19 of 28 students (57.14%) had scores above mean = 81.29. (2) The learning outcomes of mathematics student taught by cooperative learning model of TS type consisting of 28 students obtained mean = 81,64, median = 84,50, mode = 87, standard deviation = 9,306, and variance = 86,605. In addition, 22 of 28 students (78.57%) had learning outcomes above KKM = 75, and 20 of 28 students (71.42%) had scores above mean = 81.64. Based on the findings above, it can be concluded that there was no difference in the mean of mathematics learning outcomes of students taught by cooperative learning model both TGT type and TS type. The models provided good learning outcomes and improved the students’ engagement in the teaching and learning process.J. Jahring, Armiana M, Akbar Nasrum

http://usnsj.com/index.php/JME/article/view/2.2.66-80
Statistic is one of the branches of applied mathematical science developed by Karl Pearson (1857-1936). Applied statistic is the study of the application of statistical use. Many students think that applied statistic course are difficult, which can only mastered by smart students. Even the students’ anxiety arises every time they are dealing with the applied statistic course. This anxiety due to the acquisition of applied statistic value is generally lower compared to the acquisition of the other course’s value, it is seen that many students who have not been able to solve the problem related to the analysis of one-way varience (One-Way Anova). This research is done to identify, recognize, analyze, then got a result of research about students’ difficulties in solving the problem of one-way variance analysis<em>.</em> Specifically the purpose of this study is to determine the difficulties that experienced by the students of mathematics education of sembilanbelas November University, Kolaka, in solving the problem of analysis of one-way variance inapplied statistic course, as well as the efforts that can be done to overcome these difficulties. To realize it in this research, the researcher use verifikatif qualitative design to describe the actual situation and verify it, this research tries to describe the actual requirement for the learners of mathematics which of course through the requirement analysis process then verified in order to find an ideal learning design. This research will be conducted in scientific procedures in the academic realm. This research will be carried out at Sembilanbelas November University, kolaka, with active students of Teachers and Education Faculty on mathematics, alumni, and lecturer of Teacher and Education Faculty on mathematics study program will be chosen as informant with purposive sampling technique. In-depth interview, unstructured observation, and dokumen analysis will be pplied as the technique of data collection in this research, while the instruments to be used in the data collection are semi-structured interview guides, observation sheets, and documents. In analyzing the data, the researcher uses content-analysis that systematically and objectively identifies a specific message characteristic. From the results obtained, that there are three types of mistakes made by the students, such as, there are ten students who make a conceptical mistake that is equal to 29,41%, twenty two students or equal to 64,71% who make a mistake in principle, while those who make verbal errors as much as nineteen students or equal to 55,88%.S.
