The aim of this study was to identify the misconceptions and mistakes
made by students of a general mathematics course by analyzing the students'
responses to the test questions. The study test consisted of five open-ended
problems and interviews with some students. The sample of study consisted of
50 students enrolled in a general mathematics course at Al-Quds Open
University. To analyze data, the descriptive analysis method was used. The
results showed that some students have some misconceptions and
misunderstandings in solving inequalities and operations on problem solving
with fractional linear inequalities. The least ratio of common errors was (24%),
which occurred when carrying out elementary algebraic operations, but the
most common mistakes ratio was (46%),that occurred when students were
asked to solve fractional linear inequalities.
