This research aims to analyze and describe the mistakes made by students in solving mathematical literacy skills in terms of habits of mind. This study uses a qualitative research method by describing students’ mistakes in solving mathematical literacy skills in terms of habits of mind limited, developing, and proficient, as well as the factors that cause errors. These errors were analyzed based on indicators of mathematical literacy ability and to find out the type of error based on Newman’s errors. Data collection techniques used are questionnaires, tests, and interviews. The instrument used is a questionnaire of habits of mind and a test of mathematical literacy skills. The selection of research subjects was carried out purposively with several considerations, namely the subject had a habit of mind category which amounted to 5 subjects. The data analysis techniques used in this research are data reduction, data presentation, and conclusion drawing. Based on the results of the study, subjects with habits of mind limited were only able to solve questions up to level 1 because they made mistakes in process skills. Subjects with habits of mind developing, were only able to complete questions up to level 2 because they made a misunderstanding. While the other subjects were able to complete the questions up to level 4 because they made a reading error. Subjects with habits of mind proficient, were only able to complete the questions up to level 3 because they made a misunderstanding. While the other subjects were only able to solve the problem up to level 2 because they made a mistake on the level 3 question, the error made was an misunderstanding. Factors that cause errors made are haste, lack of thoroughness, error in processing skills, misunderstanding, not understanding the material, and reading errors.
