This research is based on the importance of mathematics literacy skills among students. Mathematical literacy is the ability of an individual to form, use, and interpret mathematics in various contexts. This includes reasoning mathematically and using concepts, procedures, facts and mathematical tools to explain and predict phenomena.This analysis uses qualitative approach with descriptive method. The research samples are taken from students of Islamic Junior High School 8 Kuningan with purposive sampling. The purpose of this research is to describe mathematics literacy skills based on age range. The instruments of this analysis are test instrument and interview. Data interpretation of this research is produced based on PISA (Program for International Student Assessment) level which consist of 6 level and these following indicators: 1) Formulating algebra situation, 2) Applying concept, fact, procedure and algebra reasoning, 3) Interpreting, applying, and evaluating algebra result. The result of the test and interview shows that students at the age 13 years old are able to reach level 3 and they are able to formulate the algebra situation and to apply the concept, fact, procedure and the algebra reasoning. Students at the age 14 years old are able to reach level 5 and they are able to interpret, to apply, and to evaluate the algebra result.Meanwhile, students at the age 15 years old are able to reach level 6 and they are able to interpret, to apply and to evaluate the algebra result.
