Analysis, Student error, Solving fraction Question, Gender


The purpose of this study was to obtain a description of the conceptual and procedural errors of grade V SD students in solving fraction questions according to gender. This research is a descriptive study with a qualitative approach. The results showed that the subject's lack of understanding in adding fractions includes not understanding the application of formulas, steps, and algorithms to the addition of fractions. All of this is due to the lack of habit in solving fraction addition problems. They do not understand the operation of subtracting fractions, such as not understanding the denominator by finding the Least Common Multiple (LCM), simplifying fractions, as well as the provisions for subtracting fractions. The students have lack of subject understanding in completing the multiplication count operation on fractions, such as not transferring the denominator to the denominator, and not needing to equate the denominator by using the LCM. The subject’s lack of understanding in solving fraction division problems, such as when answering fraction division problems, the subject equates the solution as solving whole numbers, and the steps the subject takes are incorrect and the inability to determine the formula that should be used.
