Good learning is learning that can lead students to be able to be creative, creative and facilitate students to contract their mathematical knowledge. In accordance with the demands of the 2013 curriculum, learning is student-centered which is a good learning activity. It can be interpreted that learning is used as a reference to systematic activities in communicating subject matter to practice Higher-Order Thinking Skills (HOTS). Higher order thinking skills in learning is one form of implementation of the 2013 curriculum. In general, HOTS measures the ability in the realm of analyzing (C4), evaluating (evaluating-C5) and creating (C6-creating). Learning and evaluation activities carried out in the learning process should be oriented to HOTS. HOTS in mathematics is a continuous and consistent process for training students, from the beginning of the learning activities to the evaluation. By facilitating students to be good mathematical problem solvers, with contextual and diverse problem-based. The final goal of learning mathematics by increasing students’ mathematical thinking ability is directed to have the ability to think to a high level, namely higher order thinking.
