Based on the observation of the researcher at students in the department of
Mathematics Education, UNIPA Surabaya, the material of limit sequence in real analysis course is a difficult material to understand deeply and coherenly. To find out the reason which makes the material of limit sequence difficult to understand and to improve the result of learning math is needed error analysis to be conducted. As for the analyzed error which include theposition, type and cause error factor which done by the students in solving the matter of limit sequence After acknowledging the position, type and cuase error factor which is done by the students in completing the quesiton of limit sequence, we can determine the alternative solution . The research is descriptive qualitative.This research is conducted in UNIPA Surabaya. The core instrument in this research is the researcher itself and the other instruments are diagnosis test and interview. In this research, the data analysis technique used are through 3 steps: data reduction,
data presenting, conclusion.The position of error done by the students of UNIPA Surabaya in solving the matter of limit sequence is less understanding in correlating the relationship among information as well as the matter completion that is the implementation of theorem and definition to solve the matter, and carelessness to check answer of question. The type of error done by the students of UNIPA Surabaya in solving the matter of limit sequence is included in principle error type and error of concept. The cause factor done by the students of UNIPA Surabaya in solving the matter of limit sequence generally is less attention and not having the deep understanding to the theories and definition to solve the problem. Based on the location, type, and error cause factor done by the students of UNIPA Surabaya in solving the matter of limit sequence so that the alternative model of learning which is proposed by the researcher is metacognitive model of learning.
