## Abstract

This study aims to analyze the mathematical connection ability of elementary school students in the material as whole counting numbers, and categories and based on indicators of mathematical connection ability. The subjects were students from Class IV as many as 114 elementary school students. This research is qualitative descriptive research using a purposive sampling technique. The research instruments used were a mathematical connection ability test and an interview. The indicators of the ability of mathematical connections measured include the relationship of mathematics with mathematics, the relationship of mathematics with other sciences, and the relationship of mathematics with everyday life. The results showed: (1) an overall mathematical connection ability of 24% including the category of less; (2) based on the category of mathematical connection ability showed that 49% of students are very less, 37% less Category, 7% Category enough, 7% Good category and 0% very good category; (3) the ability of mathematical connections based on indicators a) the relationship of mathematics with mathematics by 18% (very less Category), b) the relationship of mathematics with other sciences by 35% (less category), and c) the relationship of mathematics with everyday life by 17% (very less category). This shows that the ability of mathematical connections is still not owned by the fourth-grade students of elementary school and requires attention and further development by teachers and the school.
