Abstract

Mathematics learning succes is influenced by many factors. One of the factors is students' self-confidence. High self-confidence influences students to learn mathematics better. This is because the aspects contained in the students' self-confidence are beliefs in self-ability to mathematics, optimistic attitudes, objectives, responsible, rational and realistic thinking. Aspects on students' self-confidence need to be developed. One way is using problem-solving approach. The use of Problem-solving approach focuses on students in facing mathematics problems during their learning. With this approach, students are trained in rational and realistic thinking, particularly life-related issues. The positive side of using problem-solving approach is that students feel satisfied and proud of their work in solving problems. It gives a positive impact on students' improvement in learning mathematics. This study was conducted on a group of junior high school students, aiming to know the positive impact of problem-solving approach in building students' self-confidence in learning mathematics. The data analysis to test the difference of initial condition and after treatment used one way anova. Based on the Anova table, it was gained sig score = .000 < .05, meaning there was different increased score between the experimental class and the control class. By sefering to the empirical average in the descriptive table, it is seen that the average score of experimental class= .4110 > the average score of the control class =.0155. thus, it can be concluded the self confidence among students who used problem solving approach was better than the class who didn't get the treatment
