This activity was carried out on Monday February 20, 2023 via hybrid, where offline activities were carried out in the FKIP Hall at Sriwijaya University Bukit Besar and online activities were carried out via zoom meetings which were also broadcast live via YouTube Live, which can be accessed via the following link https://www.youtube.com/live/SD9P7hyOFUQ?feature=share
The speaker at this general lecture is Dr. Kusnandi, M.Si. who comes from the Indonesian University of Education or Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia (UPI). The theme of this general lecture is “Mathematical Thinking in Mathematics Learning”, which aims to enable students to have the ability to plan and carry out mathematics learning processes that hone mathematical thinking processes at school, and by holding this activity it is hoped that students will be able to think mathematically, can solve problems that exist in life systematically and measurably and be able to respond to issues, problems and problems that exist around them.
The general lecture activity was opened by Dr. Ketang Wiyono, M.Pd. as Chair of the Mathematics and Natural Sciences Education Department or Jurusan Pendidikan Matematika dan Ilmu Pengetahuan Alam (PMIPA), FKIP Sriwijaya University. In his opening, he hoped that the general lecture activities with guest speaker Dr. Kusnandi, M.Sc. can increase the latest knowledge and information in the field of mathematics education, especially regarding the mathematical thinking process in mathematics learning.
After the opening ceremony, the main activities of the general lecture started at 09.00 a.m, moderated by Dr. Meryansumayeka, S.Pd., M.Sc.. Next, the speaker, Dr. Kusnandi, M.Si., explained his material related to the mathematical thinking process in mathematics learning. In general, this core course material contains basic concepts of mathematical thinking processes that have long been known in the Indonesian education curriculum.
There was a discussion and question and answer session between the speaker and the general lecture participants which was very interactive.
