Arta Ekayanti

Abstract


Learning difficultness is a condition which the student can’t learn as usual because of the threat
and disturbances in learning. Learning difficultness faced by students happened when they
followed the lessons from the teacher. Based on result observation of real analysis course work
known that many students got the difficultness when prove the proposition given by the teacher.
The research results showed that the students got contents understanding difficulties, such as
misunderstanding of definitions, not enough word and lack of understanding. It means that they
got difficulties with mathematics processes. There are many student identified proving using
examples to be invalid. They use specific examples to prove general statements.
