Abstract


This research aims at investigate the critical thinking ability of pre-service mathematics teacher at Madura University. The instrument used in this research was using the Watson-Glaser Test with the mathematics content. There was 48 pre-service teachers who participated as the subjects in this research. This research used statistic descriptive method to identify the profile of critical thinking ability of pre-service mathematics teacher. The scores from each sub-skill and the total score were calculated to identify the profile of critical thinking ability of pre-service mathematics teacher. Based on the data analysis, it was found out that the critical thinking ability of pre-service mathematics teacher was in the intermediate level, yet deduction sub-skill became the best pre-service mathematics teacher’s critical thinking ability and recognition of assumption skill became the lowest pre-service mathematics teacher’s critical thinking ability.
