Abstract
Mathematics is often contested in certain events such as provincial, national and international Olympic. When solving mathematical problems, a subject needs mathematical abilities, carefulness and accuracy (rigor). RMT (Rigorous Mathematical Thinking) defines accuracy in mathematics, so RMT is needed in solving math problems. RMT involves several cognitive functions, namely level 1 (qualitative thinking), level 2 (quantitative thinking with accuracy), and level 3 (abstract relational thinking). The aim of this research is to determine description of Rigorous Mathematical Thinking skills at each level in Olympic students. The subjects of this research are 8 students in one of the favorite senior high schools in Cirebon. This type of research is a qualitative descriptive methods and data retrieval techniques that are carried out by giving written tests and interviews to Olympic students, which are then analyzed by fixed comparison techniques based on RMT cognitive function. While checking the validity of the data using triangulation with sources and peer examination through discussion. Based on the results of the research, the average use of RMT cognitive function from 8 subjects is 44.69%, the results show that S1 is at level 1, and S2, S3, S4, S5, S6, S7 and S8 are at level 3.
