- Reasoning in solving geometry problem used by students to recognize shapes, identify properties and analyze relationships between geometric objects. This study aimed at investigating the students’ reasoning in geometric problem solving with predominance of different intelligence types. This research was qualitative. The research subjects were two male 9th grade students with equal mathematical abilities. First student dominant in logical mathematical intelligence (LM), other’s in visual spatial intelligence (VS). The instrument was test to determine the dominance of students’ intelligence type and geometry test. Geometry tests used to find out students’ understanding and reasoning in solving problem about cuboid surface area. Interview used to find out more about the student’s process completed the geometry test. Students geometry reasoning was explained based on Van Hiele’s geometric thought model. The results, both students able to identify the shapes, and analyze the characteristics of objects as well. VS able to represent problem into image and visualize information to find the correct procedures. Both are able to providing good explanations about the relationship between geometry constructs, LM uses mathematical model, and VS uses a visual approach. In performing problem solving, LM is more thoughtful using mathematical procedures and calculations while VS had visual analytic abilities.
