anxiety, Rasch model, Augmented reality,, Learning Mathematics,, Students


Learning mathematics has been a fundamental subject for students. The sample will be restricted to students in junior high school who had studied in learning mathematics using augmented reality. The population was derived from private and public junior high school in various provinces. Data was collected using an online survey to reach large audiences from different provinces. Data analysis using RASH Model. The results were used to classify the level of students’ anxiety. Students from public junior high school of education were more anxious than private school to solve mathematical problems.
