Abstract


This research is a descriptive research with qualitative approach that aimed to describe the ability of students' conceptual understanding of mathematics on the set. Subjects is student of class VII SMP Frater Palopo who have learned the set at school. This research began by taking three research subjects viewed from student grades. The three subjects based of subjects with high ability, middle abiliy, and low ability. After that, the three subjects were given the test of conceptual understanding of mathematics and then interview to analyze student’s conceptual understanding of mathematics based on four indicators 1) Being able to explain verbally about what he had achieved. 2) Be able to implement the relation of concept and procedure. 3) Able to provide examples and non-examples of the concept being learned. 4) Being able to develop a concept that has been learned. Student’s conceptual understanding of mathematics of high ability in solving the set of test only meet on indicators able to explain verbally about what he has been achieved (indicator number 1). Student’s conceptual understanding of mathematics of middle ability in solving the set meets the indicator of be able to apply the relationship of concept and procedure (indicator number 2). Student’s conceptual understanding of mathematics of low ability in solving the set meets the indicator is able to apply the relationship of concept and procedure  (indicator number 2). The similarity of Student’s conceptual understanding of mathematics of the three subjects in solving test of conceptual understanding present in all indicators remain unfavorable.
