### DESCRIBING SECONDARY STUDENTS’ GEOMETRIC PROBLEM SOLVING BY SEX

#### Abstract

Students efforts in solving mathematical problems often involve the describing of data within the problem. One of the problems that often arises in mathematics is the problem of geometry. In this research, problem solving geometry of male and female students are described. The geometry problem solving written test was delivered, specifically the application of trigonometry in Geometry. This research was conducted by taking 17 eleventh grade students as participants and 2 students as research subjects. The results of the study show that Problem solving between male and female students has difference in the stages of planning, executing, and looking back. While at the stage of understanding is same. The differences can be caused by several factor such as a memory that occurs or post solution strategy to solve a given problem. Implication of study expected to be able to provide a deeper description of geometry problem solving so that in making geometry questions consider this research.
