Abstract
The practitioners of mathematics education believed that problemsolving ability is the core of the learning mathematics. In the problemsolving process, students are challenged to explore their mathematical concepts and capabilities. Students must identify the adequacy of the data contained in the problem. More than this, the student must ensure that the data at issue is relevant and logical to answer questions. Students also need to understand the relationships that exist between the data and the questions, and it should be reflected in the model made the students. Students should make sure that the model that has been created is a model that can be used to solve the problem. In solving the problem, students use concepts and mathematical representations to express their mathematical ability and reasoning. All the activities in the process of mathematical problem solving has the po tential to maximize the mathematical ability of students if students are given the opportunity to discuss with their peers. One of the capabilities that can be developed through discussion is mathematical communication skills. Habituation to the students to communicate mathematically through ongoing discussions will strengthen the ability of solving mathematical problems. Strategy of teachinglearning that has the potential to build simultaneously problem solving skills and mathematical communication is Model Eliciting Activities (MEAs). There are six principles of MEAs that allow the establishment of problemsolving ability and mathematical communication simultaneously, namely the principle of : using a real problem , creating a mathematical model, presenting their mathematical thinking to other students, judging the truth of their solution, documenting the results of his work , and the principle that the resulted model is an effective prototype models. This study, which involved 69 students of 8 th grade and aimed to determine the ability of communication and solving mathematical problems students after the students engaged in learning mathematics through MEAs strategy, provide results that: the ability of communication and solving mathematical problems of st udents that engaged in learning mathematics through MEAs strategy better than students engaged in learning mathematics through conventional strategies. The results of this study also indicate that there is a positive association between mathematical proble m solving skills and mathematical communication skills.
