- It is a truism that the effective way to attain the educational objectives is by developing the students’ thinking skills. School, for example, provides a large space whereby the teachers can undergo the teaching and learning process through its subjects, like mathematics. Learning mathematics not only requires the students to think critically, but also to comprise reasoning to derive conclusions that is called “Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS). This paper attempts to descriptively discuss the results from a theoretical study which aims to investigate the concept of HOTS and its relevant learning model in classroom implementation. Several articles and books related to the issues on what HOTS basically means and how it should be taught in the real classroom were studied. Teachers’ awareness and perception about HOTS are essentially needed to select the relevant learning model in order to design learning activities in the classroom. The results of this study highlight that the inquiry-based learning, such as Discovery Learning, Inquiry Learning, Project Based-Learning and Problem Based-Learning can be implemented as a way to encourage the students to pose high-quality questions. Besides, the teachers need an authentic assessment that can provide an obvious image about the process of students’ thinking and how the results of the evaluation can be valid and reliable.
