Abstract

Level of cognitive process is a crucial issue in mathematics problem solving. Theability to solve unstructured problems in learning mathematics is influenced by level ofcognitive process. The mastery of cognitive process level determines how individualsunderstand the problems and discover the way to solve these problems. The researcher adoptedthe concept proposed by Kitchener, then it is completed by the opinion of Anderson andKarthwohl. A-three level model of cognitive process consisted of cognition, metacognition,and epistemic cognition. The research is set to find out levels of cognitive process inmathematics problem solving. This is a qualitative research used task-based interview. Astudent at tenth grade of SMAN 6 Surakarta involved as a participant in this research. Theresult revealed that the student is able to solve mathematics problems which the problems arein the cognition level, exactly in the first stage, namely factual knowledge.
