- Mathematics intuition, problem solving
The type of this research is descriptive explorative with a qualitative approach, aims to know the intuition of students in solving math problems at the stage of understanding Polya problem. Data collection methods triangulate data through tests, interviews, and documentation. The subject of the research is a mathematics education student at the Muhammadiyah University of Cirebon. The population of the subjects was 50 students and then re-elected who had the initial ability mathematics with a score of 25 people, then selected 1 female student whose Academic Potential Test (APT) is medium and has good mathematical delivery. The results of this study indicate that the intuition of students in solving mathematical problems at the stage of understanding Polya problem: First, Subjection using intuition is self- evident intuition, that is, statement, representation, or interpretation is considered the subject by his / her self, the subject feels no need to show/ prove the truth of such statements, representations, or interpretations formally. Second, Subjects use certainty's intrinsic intuition, i.e., the subject assumes a statement, its representation, or its interpretation, a certainty, no external support (formal or empirical to obtain it). Third, the subject uses intuition perseverance, i.e., the interpretation and the resulting representation of the subject tend to be difficult to change. Prove it with the tendency not to use something new beyond its mathematical comprehension.
