Abstract

This type of research is qualitative since it aims at finding out the exploration of mathematical intuition and its role in solving mathematical problems. The research method was done by collecting data through mathematical problem-solving test according to Polya stages and conducting in-depth interview with the subject afterwards. The subject of the study consists of female students of mathematics education program of the Muhammadiyah University of Cirebon. There were 50 people and one female student was taken to be involved in this study. The result of the research shows that the mathematical exploration of intuition and its role in solving mathematical problems including: (1). When the subject was given a problem in solving mathematical problems, an exploration of intuition and the role arises. When the subject made a mathematical problem-solving plan using intuition exploration the role appeared was direct. the subject did not use exploration intuition in making plans and implementing mathematical problem solving, the subject tended to use the intuition exploration in re-examining the answer. (2). When the subject was given the second question; in understanding mathematical problems not using exploratory intuition, making plans and implementing solving mathematical problem, and re-examining problem solving; the subject used affirmatory intuitive exploration. In this research, exploration and the role of intuition occurred in accordance with the stages of solving mathematical problems starting from understanding the problem, making plans and carrying out problem solving, as well as re-examining mathematical problem solving, in which the subject often experience changes in her intuition exploration.
