### Abstract:

This article aims to describe the actions taken
by the teacher to bring out students' thoughts so that
students are able to make strategies in solving
mathematical problems. Data obtained from direct
observation of the research subject when giving actions to
students. The subject of the study was the mathematics
teacher who was chosen based on special characteristics
that fit the purpose of the study. In this study, there are 2
different characteristics when the teacher gives action to
students so that students are able to make strategies in
solving problems with the story. First, the teacher gives
four actions as follows: (1) the teacher asks students to
rewrite the problem using their own words, write down
what is known and what is asked in the problem; (2) the
teacher asks students to turn problems into symbolic
problems; (3) the teacher asks students to create symbolic
mathematical problems and use operations and procedures
in mathematics appropriately to solve problems; (4) the
teacher directs students to check the results of problem
solving. Second, the teacher gives the following actions: (1)
the teacher asks students to write down what is known and
what is asked in the problem; (2) the teacher asks students
to turn problems into symbolic problems; (3) the teacher
asks students to create symbolic mathematical problems
and use operations and procedures in mathematics
appropriately to solve problems.
