Penyelesaian masalah amat penting dalam pembelajaran matematik. Artikel ini mengupas dapatan kajian ke atas cara pelajar semester pertama maktab tempatan mengendalikan penyelesaian masalah dalam matematik. Sampel seramai 536 orang telah diberi ujian mengandungi 12 item. Dapatan menunjukkan bahawa secara keseluruhan responden memperolehi tahap pencapaian yang kurang memuaskan dalam ujian matematik tersebut. Beberapa cadangan diberi untuk meningkatkan keupayaan pelajar menyelesaikan masalah dalam pembelajaran matematik.
