Abstract: The aim of the study is to determine, the perception of Mathematics teachers on the implementation of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) in secondary school of Kuala Langat District, Banting. Besides, the study also aims to determine the mathematics teacher’s knowledge about HOTS and implementation of HOTS in classroom. The respondents were 50 secondary school mathematics teachers who were chosen randomly. Data collected in this study will be analyzed, descriptively involving the calculation of frequency, percentage, mean and standard deviation. In addition to that inferential statistics will be used to analyze the strength of the relationship between two variables in each hypothesis by using Pearson correlation and t-test analysis. The study found that, the Mathematics teachers in secondary school have a positive feedback on the implementation of HOTS in the school and the implementation of HOTS is high. Analysis of the hypothesis showed a significant relationship between the knowledge of HOTS and the implementation of HOTS in teaching and learning (T&L). Meanwhile, there was no difference between HOTS, knowledge and practice of T&L with teaching experience. In conclusion, it is clear that the perception of mathematics teachers on the implementation of HOTS is very good.
