Abstract

In the 21st century, professional mathematics teachers are very necessary for developing of mathematics education. To become a professional mathematics teacher, there are several competencies that must be mastered by teacher-candidate students when studying at LPTK, which are knowledge, practice, and attitude. So, they can become a professional teacher in guiding students. Besides, professional mathematics teachers also need 21st century skills, in order to face the global challenges of the 21st century. To face these challenges, the students must learn ICT development and master 4C skills. Therefore, LPTK as the education of teacher candidates must equip their students by providing 4C skills, which are Critical Thinking, Communication, Collaboration, and Creativity. So, Mathematics students as teacher candicates are ready to face the challenges of the 21st century well, as they have good characters. These characters aim to provide teacher candidates who are persistent, competitive, moral, tolerant, mutual cooperative, work hard, science and technology minded, and religious based on Pancasila as the principle of Indonesia. These lead the students to easily face the challenges of education in the 21st century.
