The Statistical Reasoning Obstacles of Mathematics Pre-Service Teacher on Descriptive Statistics
Statistical reasoning is one of the objectives in statistical learning. But in reality students experience obstacles in learning process. Therefore, it is necessary to identify obstacles of statistical reasoning on descriptive statistical material and its causal factors. The identification process used qualitative research method with the research subjects are the students who are currently taking basic statistics course. Data collection was done by means of tests, interviews and study documents. The results of this study shows that pre-service mathematics teacher experience the obstacles of statistical reasoning in each descriptive statistical material. By acknowledging the obstacles students face in questions, it will be easier for teacher to design a learning process that will be carried out in class so that learning objectives can be achieved.
