Abstract
To improve mathematics understanding, learning must begin with something close to ethno-mathematics. The objective of this study is to describe the characteristics of trans level in understanding mathematics during ethnomathematics learning. The subjects of this study were 10 high school students majoring in mathematics and science in Bengkulu, selected from 215 students based on their cognitive abilities. The research was carried out in a participatory manner in the regular learning process by applying the ethno-mathematics approach. Subjects were interviewed based on the assignments given. Data were analyzed qualitatively by applying genetic decomposition and the fixed-comparison methods. The result indicated that the trans students were able to build thematic linkages between actions, processes, objects, and other schemes. These schemes can be used to solve mathematical problems and that related. It can be concluded that the characteristic of the Trans Level was able to initiate the formation of a mature scheme.
