    Psychology of mathematics education is the branch of psychology that focuses on how we learn mathematics. Mathematics education has changed over time due to a new understanding of learning processes. For example, in previous mathematics learning, drilling and repetition were key components of mathematics education. Recently, mathematics education has included hands-on activities due to psychologists’ beliefs that children learn best through activity. Psychology today says that the current educational philosophy appears to be for student in elementary school who is not learning any subjects to even more hours of that subject in school and an ability in calculating numbers. But, psychology is related to building a student’s character. Math teacher should encourage his/her students that they must not be afraid of math. Some of the characters are being developed in learning mathematics such as honesty , tolerance , hard work, creative, independent, curious, communicative and responsibilities. Mathematics is one of tools that can be used to develop character of students, due to the relationship of mathematic and daily life. Mathematics activities are used to explore ideas, arguments and students’ different ways in determining solution from open questions and commands that can deliver students to the understanding of a concept
