Abstract


Students’ academic self-concept has been put into consideration in mathematics education research. This study investigated an inherent connection between students’ mathematical problem-solving ability and their academic self-concept. Students’ mathematical problem-solving ability was evaluated from their ability in solving trigonometry problems, while students’ academic self-concept was obtained from questionnaire. Subjects was 36 high school students in West Kalimantan, Indonesia. Result show that students’ academic self-concept connected with their ability in solving trigonometry problems. Connection between different academic self-concept level and problem-solving ability is also discussed. Students interview further verified the importance of students’ academic self-concept in mathematical problem-solving.
