The Impact of Mathematical Reasoning and Critical Thinking Skills on Mathematical Literacy Skills


For learning mathematics, mathematical skills are needed, some of which are mathematical reasoning skills, mathematical critical thinking skill, and mathematical literacy skills. This research aims to obtain information regarding the impact of mathematical reasoning and critical thinking skills on mathematical literacy skills. This research used a quantitative approach using an associative method with a correlational technique. The sample of this research was comprised 51 students who took integral calculus course in the Department of Mathematics and Mathematics Education, Faculty of Mathematics and Science in Universitas Negeri Jakarta, which were collected randomly using simple random sampling. The statistical analysis used in this research was multiple regression analysis. The results of this research showed that: 1) There was a positive impact of mathematical reasoning on mathematical literacy. 2) There was a positive impact of mathematical critical thinking skill on mathematical literacy. 3) There was an impact of both mathematical reasoning skill and mathematical critical thinking skill together on mathematical literacy. Further research is needed related to the impact of mathematical reasoning and critical thinking skills on mathematical literacy skills reviewed from the student’s initial mathematical skill.
