One of the 21st century skills and also the main goal of students learning mathematics is mathematical problem solving. To achieve one of the 21st century skills, students can practice solving problems in various forms of questions, including the story problem. Completing the story problem requires understanding of the problem context, making a mathematical model, developing a resolution strategy and reviewing the strategies used. The purpose of this research is to analyze the students ability to solve mathematical story questions about sine rules material. This research was conducted by quantitative and qualitative analysis. Data were collected from 34 students of tenth grade senior of high school. Problem solving for each student was scored by using a holistic rubric, then solution was reviewed by using the Polya Problem Solving Strategy. The results showed at least students had been written the solution but the methods that they used could not be understood (problem number1) and indicates that were weak in understanding and planning problem solving. Then there was only 4 students who were able to solve the problem solving correctly (problem number 2), thus students had been able to implement the four steps of Polya-s problem solving strategy properly.

Keywords: Mathematical problem solving; Story problems, Sine rules material
