Abstract

The aim of the research was to describe mathematical literacy of junior high school students in West Sumatra Indonesia. The description was focused on the competences clusters mentioned by Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), namely reproduction, connection, and reflection cluster. Based on the description, it was analyzed the factors that have influenced mathematical literacy of the students. The method used in the research was a mixing method (descriptive and qualitative). Data was collected from 188 Junior High School students who participated in Mathematical Literacy contest in West Sumatra. The results of the research show that most students only master reproduction cluster and very few of them that master reflection cluster. For each cl uster, the score of most students are very low. In addition, mathematical abilities of the students are not satisfactory.
