Abstract

This study aims to analyse students’ error in solving mathematics word problems based on The PISA frameworks. This is a qualitative descriptive study involving 63 students with low, moderate, and high level of mathematics achievement from 2 schools in Surakarta. The data collection was conducted using test, interview, and documentation. The data analysis was conducted in three stages namely data reduction, data display, and conclusion drawing/verification. The results indicate that based on the content, most students gave incorrect answers on the shape and space category; based on the context, most students gave incorrect answers on the occupational category; and based on the process, most students gave incorrect answers on the interpreting category. The possible factors caused of this problems are the mathematics textbooks which still lack of PISA-like problems, the teaching practices which still put mathematics as an exact and abstract subject, and the students did not familiar in solving problems which need reasoning and creativity.
