Abstract—This study analyzed the reception, transformation
and problem solving ability of professional mathematics of
university students of technology by using Grey Relational
Analysis (GRA). In the nine-year Standards of mathematics
curriculum published in 2008, there is an important topic called
“Connection.” The first part of the “Connection” is called
“reception.” The second part of the “Connection” is called
“transformation,” “problem solving” followed. Current results
of this study show that the problem concerned unemployment
rate is the most difficulty among 10 problems, followed by the
problem concerned sales profit.
Index Terms—Grey relational analysis (GRA), reception, transformation and problem solving, professional mathematics, mathematics, knowledge.
