Abstract

This study aims at determining students’ difficulties in understanding logarithm material. The subject of this study are 10th grade students. The type of research is qualitative descriptive, and it applied several steps in the form of providing test to the students, determining the difficulties and interviewing students who had difficulty on the material. The result of the study showed that there were several difficulties such as applying definition, determining logarithmic properties to solve problems, applying logarithmic properties and applying the prerequisite material. These difficulties are due to the lack of understanding of logarithmic definitions, the lack of ability to see the facts relating to problems, over-focus on facts of rote and technical procedures, relying on improper intuition, and inconsistencies in symbolic writing and inaccuracy.
