1. Introduction

The introduction contains the purpose of article/research that is formulated and presented by an adequate introduction and avoids detail references and research result presentations (Bekker, et. al., 1999). The research urgency, supporting facts, and data must be included. A preliminary research result should be explained as the basis of the research. Before mentioning the objective/s, a gap analysis must be elucidated. The gap analysis states the difference/s between the research and other previous studies. At this point, the novelty will be apparent. The research stance must be included, whether it corrects, debates, or support the previous research (Febriyanti & Novitasari, 2019).

2. Method

This section involves describing the results obtained from the research and drawing similarities and differences between the research and previous others from methods, data, and results. However, describe whether the problems have been researched successfully according to the objectives using the proposed methods. This should involve the description of the analysis conducted, cause and benchmark of success/failure, and the unfinished part of the research followed with the steps to be taken as follow up process.

3.  Results and Discussion

This section involves describing the results obtained from the research and drawing similarities and differences between the research and previous others from methods, data, and results. However, describe whether the problems have been researched successfully according to the objectives using the proposed methods.

Deduction or conclusion is made from the previous description with the addition of argumentative personal opinion. It should also include the limitations of the research in terms of the process, the theory used, methods applied, or generalization of results which will serve as a foundation for further research. This section is also used to provide illustration or recommendation for further research on the subject which serves as a response to the observed limitation. Moreover, the implications of the research must also be included.

Author Contributions

For transparency, we encourage authors to submit an author statement file outlining their individual contributions to the article using the relevant CRediT roles: Conceptualization; Data curation; Formal analysis; Funding acquisition; Investigation; Methodology; Project administration; Resources; Software; Supervision; Validation; Visualization; Roles/Writing - original draft; Writing - review & editing. Authorship statements should be formatted with the names of authors first and CRediT role(s) following.


[OPTIONAL]. This is used to appreciate the efforts of associate, who are not registered as co-authors, for their assistance and fund for your research/publication. Therefore, a standard note of ‘acknowledgment' is usually published in each article.

Works sent by authors are acknowledged but it is recommended that the reviewer decided by the editor gives valuable entries into each article to accelerate the review job due to the limited number of reviewers. The recommended reviewers can be listed at the end page after references because the review is conducted by a double-blind method.

Nomenclature and Units
Please take care that all terminology and notation used will be widely understood. Abbreviations and acronyms should be spelled out in full at their first occurrence in the text.

SI units are strongly recommended. If non-SI units must be used, SI equivalents (or conversion factors) must also be given. Please use the spellings 'litre' and 'metre' (a 'meter' is a measuring instrument).

Please use a decimal point rather than a comma in numbers (i.e. 3.142 not 3,142).

All figures should be embedded correctly positioned within your Word files, and should also be supplied as separate graphics files in their original formats. EPS, TIFF or PSD formats are preferred. Use a minimum of 300 dpi.

Figures should appear in numerical order, be described in the body of the text and be positioned close to where they are first cited. Each figure should have a caption which describes the illustration, and that can be understood independently of the main text. The caption should be given in the text, and not on the figure itself.

Because figures may be resized in the course of production please use scale bars and not magnification factors.

Please submit tables as editable text and not as images. Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text and place any table notes below the table body. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in them do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article. Please avoid using vertical lines.

Make sure all figures and tables will fit inside the text area.

The authors must refer to Vygotsky: Jurnal Pendidikan Matematika dan Matematika for writing format and style (Template Vygotsky). This will ensure fast processing and publication. Any papers not fulfilling the requirements based on the guideline to authors will not be processed.
