THE EFFECT OF CONTEXTUAL TEACHING AND LEARNING ON HIGHER ORDER THINKING SKILLS GEOMETRY
This study aims to determine the effect of contextual teaching and learning on
higher-order thinking skills in geometry. Geometry is one of the scopes of mathematics, in
which it studies lines, spaces, and volumes that are abstract and related to each other,
have lines and points so that they become symbols such as squares, triangles, circles,
and others, the method used is a quasi-experimental design with 60 high school students
as research subjects, divided into two groups experimental and control. There are three
components of higher-order thinking skills in this study, 1) creative thinking, 2) logical
thinking, and 3) problem-solving. the three components were measured using a test. Data
analysis technique by comparing the two groups that were tested statistically. Statistical
test results obtained sig. 0.68 > 0.05 can be concluded that CTL has a significant effect
on the ability of HOTS in geometry
