ANALYSIS OF THE CAUSES OF DIFFICULTY LEARNING MATHEMATICS MATERIALS OF COUNT NUMBERS OPERATING IN CLASS IV STUDENTS IN MI MA'ARIF TUNTANG
This study aims to: (1) to find out the causes of the difficulties experienced by students in learning mathematics for the material of calculating numbers in class IV at MI Ma'arif Tuntang Academic Year 2021/2022. (2) to find out the efforts that can be made to overcome students' difficulties in learning mathematics for class IV number calculation operations at MI Ma'arif Tuntang for the 2020/2021 Academic Year.
This type of research uses descriptive qualitative research. The data sources used are primary data sources and secondary data sources. The data collection procedures used include observation, interviews, questionnaires, and documentation. The data analysis techniques used are data collection, data reduction, data presentation, and drawing conclusions. Checking the validity of the data by means of extension of observations and triangulation.
The results of this study show that (1) the factors that cause difficulties in learning mathematics come from internal and external factors. Internal factors include student attitudes in learning mathematics, student learning motivation which is still quite low, body conditions that are sometimes less than optimal in supporting the learning process, and students' sensing ability is lacking. Meanwhile, external factors include the lack of variety of teaching teachers in the mathematics learning process, the use of learning media that has not been maximized, school facilities and infrastructure that do not yet support mathematics learning, as well as a family environment that is still lacking in providing attention to students. (2) that can be made to overcome difficulties in learning mathematics.
