Abstract


The Pandemic period made mathematics less understood by students, especially vocational students. Because of that, describing mathematical critical thinking skills need to be done so that teachers can improve the approach or learning method. This research aims to describe the essential skills of thinking of 10th-grade vocational high school students on the content of quadratic equations and functions. This type of research is descriptive quantitative research. The subjects in this study consisted of 25 students of SMK Negeri 1 Karawang grade 10 to determine the sample using the purposive sampling technique. The test instrument collected the research data in three validated description questions. This research indicates that students' critical thinking skills implemented through web-based learning media at SMK Negeri 1 Karawang are “moderate category”. The final test results among 25 respondents consisted of three students within “high category”, seventeen students within “medium category”, and five students within “low category”. Moreover, the students’ percentage level on critical thinking skills having 55% was deemed within “moderate category”. The conclution is that the respondents' mathematical critical thinking skills are in the moderate category, so it is hoped that educators can improve the students' critical thinking skills by using learning methods, learning media, and teaching materials
