Abstract
The study is descriptive research with a qualitative approach, aimed to describe the mathematics problem-solving the problem based on SOLO taxonomy in terms of cognitive style. The instruments used in this study were researcher themselves, GEFT and Super-item test and interview schedule. The subjects of the study were grade VII students of SMPN 3 Makale, consisting of 2 fields dependent and 2 independent field students. The data were collected through job analysis and interview. Data analysis indicates that; (1) subject 1 with field independent shows that (a) at the unistructural level, the subject provided a fact based on the solution of the problems, (b) at the multi-structural level, subject used several parts of information and focused thinking on some aspects of the solutions, (c) at the relational level, the subject answered the problem by linking some previously known concepts and (d) at the extended abstract level, the subject could not find the formula without applying principle or pattern that has been formed; (2) subject 2 with field-independent cognitive style shows that (a) at the unistructural level, the subject provided a fact based on solutions of the problems, (b) at the multi-structural level, the subject used several parts of information and focused thinking on some aspect of the solution, (c) at the rational level, the subject answered the problems by linking some previously known concepts, (d) at the extended abstract level, the subject could find the formula without applying principles or patterns that have been formed; (3) subject 3 with dependent cognitive style showes (a) at the unistructural level, the subject used error information to answer the problems, (b) at the multi-structural level, the subject used several parts of information and focused thinking on some aspects of the solutions, (c) at the rational level, the subject could solve the problems, (d) at the extended abstract level, the subject could not solve problems; (4) subject 4 with dependent cognitive style shows (a) at the unistructural level, the subject provided a fact based on the solutions of the problems, (b) at the multi-structural level, the subject used some parts of information and focused thinking on some aspects of the solutions, (c) at the relational level, the subject could solve the problems, (d) at the extended abstract level, the subject could solve the problems.
