Abstract

The students' mathematical literacy and adaptive reasoning abilities are critical in teaching mathematics. This research aims to see how the puzzle-assisted REACT learning strategy affects students' mathematical literacy and adaptive reasoning abilities. The research employed a quantitative approach with the One-Way MANOVA to analyze the data. This research was conducted at SMP Muhammadiyah 2 Kalirejo, Central Lampung, with a sample size of 26 students for the experimental group and 25 for the control group. A test of students' mathematical literacy and a questionnaire on adaptive reasoning abilities were used as research instruments. The findings revealed that (1) the puzzle-assisted REACT learning strategy had an impact on the seventh-grade of junior high school students' mathematical literacy and adaptive reasoning abilities; (2) the puzzle-assisted REACT learning strategy had an impact on the seventh-grade of junior high school students' mathematical literacy ability; (3) the puzzle-assisted REACT learning strategy had an impact on the seventh-grade of junior high school students and adaptive reasoning ability.
