The main obstacle in mathematics learning at junior high school level is the lack of students' skills in performing basic operations of integers and fractions. This skill should be impeccable on elementary school level, nonetheless a big number of junior high school students experience impediment to follow the learning activities because they did not have enough pre-requisites on basic arithmetic. The similar circumstances are most probably also taken place at senior high school level. This study investigated students’ skills on basic arithmetic and then presents some analyses of diagnostic learning problems. The crucial findings in this research are various facts that might be ignored by teachers over the years, but they were alleged to be roots of the leading causes of the low student skills and understanding in basic operations of numbers. The diagnostic results will be worthwhile to improve the method and approach of mathematics teaching not only at junior high school but also at elementary school. Accordingly, the article offers several approaches to overcome the problems found in the study.
