Abstract

Learning is continual process in constructing own knowledge of each individual. It is on the right track that the learning becomes pleasing thing, interesting and haves a clear purpose. But, there are still assumptions that the learning get hardly troubles, especially in Mathematics study. There are things that make the study doesn't get its essential (purpose). The cognitive load theory discusses about the load felt by someone in learning related to the memory system to reach expected purpose of learning. The purpose of learning is closely related to the understanding of concept obtained from learning process and utilized to solve problem happened as according to available concept. Through the cognitive load theory, the students construct again their knowledge to finalize mathematics problem. The research findings showed that the understanding of concept and ability to solve Mathematics problems at students in Mathematics Education Department UIN Suska Riau by applying the Cognitive Load Theory improved significantly from unfavourable criterion to be a better one. Keyword: The cognitive Load Theory, Concept Understanding, Problem-Solving
