#### Abstract

This study aims to determine the effect of the giving question and getting answer strategy and the multilevel strategy on students' understanding of mathematical concepts. This research is a type of quasi-experimental research with a non-equivalent control group design involving students of class VII B and class VII C of MTsN 5 Bulukumba. The instrument used in this study was a test of understanding mathematical concepts through essay questions. The analysis technique used is descriptive statistical analysis and inferential statistical analysis. Based on the results of data analysis using descriptive statistics in the experimental class, the pretest mean value was 49.21, and the post-test was 74.74. In the control class, the pretest mean value was 48.50, and the post-test was 67.50. The results of the inferential statistical analysis using the independent sample t-test obtained the Sig. value of 0.067, which is greater than the value of α which is 0.05 (Sig. > α). Thus, it can be concluded that H0 is accepted, that is there is no difference between the giving question and getting answer strategy and the multilevel strategy on understanding mathematical concepts for class VII students of MTsN 5 Bulukumba. It can be concluded that there is an effect of applying the giving questions and getting answer strategy as big as the effect of applying the multilevel strategy on students' understanding of mathematical concepts.
