THE IMPACT OF SELF-EFFICACY ON MATHEMATICAL THINKING ABILITY
The aim of this research is to determine the characteristics of mathematical thinking based on the impact of self-efficacy on class VIII students on numeracy literacy questions. This research is a qualitative research with research subjects 60 students of class VIII. The data collection instruments used were self-efficacy questionnaires, mathematical thinking ability tests, and interviews. The analysis of the mathematical thinking ability test refers to the modified Stacey indicators. Data analysis was carried out in the following steps, namely the data reduction, the data presentation, the data verification, and the conclusion. The results of the research show that (1) students who have a high category of Magnitude aspect have characteristics of mathematical thinking achievement of 44% (2) students who have a high category of Strength aspect have characteristics of mathematical thinking achievement of 67%, and (3) students who have a General aspect the high category has the achievement characteristics of mathematical thinking of 75%. The achievement of mathematical thinking abilities can be seen from the students' achievements in the Magnitude, Strength, and Generally aspects which are achieved in their entirety or alternately between the two aspects in each aspect of self-efficacy.
