 Field Value Title THINKING STRUCTURE OF STUDENTS’ UNDERSTANDING OF PROBABILITY CONCEPT IN TERM OF APOS THEORY Creator Syamsuri, Syamsuri Santosa, Cecep AHF Subject Thinking Structure; Mental Structure; APOS Theory; Probability Concept; ACE Learning Cycle Description This study aims to analyze the mental structure experienced by students when understanding the concept of probability reviewed from APOS Theory and then suggests a lesson that accommodates the mental structure. APOS theory states that a learner forms a suitable mental structure when interpreting a mathematical concept. This study involved 106 third semester students who enrolled in Probability Theory. The students were given ACE (Activities, Classroom, Exercises) learning cycle treatment. After treatment, students were then given homework assignments that aim to reinforce the learning process. After the sixth week of learning, data were collected through a test. The results of this study are as follows: (1) the mental structure of students towards the concept of opportunity is still at the process level, not at the object-level, (2) Improving the learning of probability concept requires activities to improve verbal understanding, not only in the form of pictures and symbols. The alternative learning treatments are written in this article.
