ABSTRACT

The problem in mathematics is a condition faced someone but has not found a solution to sol ve the condition. One form of problem that can be displayed during the learning of mathematics is open ended problems. Open ended problems is a problem that has possible an swers or solutions are different. By providing open ended problems, then students wi ll receive a new asumption that turns mathematical problems can be solved in various ways and various answers. The development of a teaching materials on subjects related to mathematical th eories, especially in algebra enough required, even more teaching m aterials containing open ended problems. With the teaching materials based open ended problems, students presented mathematics problem without focusing on a solution or an answer. Students will be acc ustomed to reveal all his ideas in solve the problem. Th e importance of providing open ended problems in teaching materials of algebra to develop students' creativity is what lies behind the writing of this paper.
