Abstract

The quality of mathematics education in Indonesia is still low. This is at least acquired from the attainment of the students of Indonesia participating in international assessments, such as PISA and TIMSS. Some of the main causes are mathematics learning that is poorly related to the contexts of living that students experience. In addition, teacher lacks facilitating students in problem solving activities. Therefore, teacher needs to familiarize students with PISA and TIMSS like questions in mathematics learning and teach them the process and strategies of solving problem. Within this article, it is given an alternative problem solving process for PISA and TIMSS like questions with 4 (four) stages, along with 12 (twelve) core strategies of problem solving and other strategies that can also be taught to students.
