The present study is survey nature. The objectives of the study as: (1) To Study the students’ mastery in mathematical basic skills, (2) To Study the students’ mastery in mathematical problem solving skills and (3) To Study the relationship between the students’ mastery in mathematical basic skills and their mathematical problem solving skills. It is a survey research design. All the Teachers serving in secondary schools students of Rajkot District were taken as the population of the study. Total sample were 100 (boys 50 and girls 50).The study employed a survey research method because none of the variables used in the study was manipulated but were used as they have existed. In the present study to measure the mathematical basic skills and mathematical problem solving skills of the students in mathematics, the mathematical Basic Skills Test and mathematical Problem Solving Tests for were developed by the investigator himself. Chi-square test and t-test were used to determine the significant relationship between mastery of mathematical basic skills and the mathematical problem solving skills. The study revealed that (1) the students in mastery of mathematical basic skills (MBS) were on the Medium Mastered (MM) Level, (2) the student in mastery of mathematical problem solving skills (MPSS) was on the Medium Mastered (MM) Level and (3) the students’ mastery of mathematical basic skills and their mathematical problem solving skills are same.

Mathematical Basic Skills (MBS), Mathematical Problem Solving Skills (MPSS)
