This event will be based on research by the student's difficulties in solving geometry, especially waking up flat rectangle. Because in solving geometry students sued for creative thinking, whereas in fact the students rather lazy and only see the results of your friends, as well as student learning outcomes is still much under the KKM. It can be seen from the results of student learning on a daily wake-up flat material replicates the rectangular subjects mathematics Class VII SMPN 40 lesson 2016/2017 year, the field of 96 students only 8 students who meet the KKM.
