Abstract

Mathematics critical thinking ability junior high school students in Indonesia is still relatively low. This can be seen from the results of the 2018 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) survey in which Indonesia ranked 74 out of 79 countries with an average score of 371. In the mathematics category, Indonesia ranked 73 out of 79 countries with a score of 379. Based on the results of research previously conducted by researchers, the researchers researched mathematical thinking abilities and mathematical resilience of junior high school students through. The previous results of research showed the average critical thinking skills of junior high school students were still relatively low. The average critical thinking ability of junior high school students only scored 68 on a scale of 0-100, this value is included in the new category enough. The goal of this research is to get a picture about the enhancement of critical thinking and mathematical resilience students after learning using Model Eliciting Activities (MEAs). This research conducted in the private junior high school in Central Jakarta class VIII, even semester in the academic year 2018-2019. The method of this research was a quasi-experiment. The research sample consisted of one experimental class and one control class selected based on cluster random sampling technique. The material used in this research was build a flat side room. The results showed that 1) the enhancement of mathematical critical thinking abilities of students who study with Model Eliciting Activities (MEAs) was higher than students who study with Problem Based Learning (PBL), 2) achieving the mathematical resilience of students who study with Model Eliciting Activities (MEAs) was higher than students who study with Problem Based Learning (PBL) reviewed as a whole, 3) there was a correlation between mathematical resilience and critical thinking ability, meaning that there was a significant relationship between mathematical resilience and critical thinking ability
