Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to identify studentsí problem-posing ability and students' attitude towards problem solving. In addition, this study will also determine the relationship between studentsí problemposing ability and attitude towards problem solving. The sample consisted of 35 form 4 secondary school students. Two instruments were used: the Mathematical Problem-Posing instrument and the Attitudes towards Problem Solving instrument. The results revealed that students are capable of posing a 'Due Problem "better than" Uno Problem'. Perseverance and confidence were moderate, while the dimensions of willingness were at a high level. The findings also found no correlation between studentsí problem-posing ability and students' attitude towards problem solving.
