This study aims to identify the level of emotional intelligence and the ability of non-routine mathematical problem-solving among Form Two secondary students in KubangPasu. It determines the standard of the student's emotional intelligence capabilities across mathematic non-routine problem-solving. A total of 197 Form Two students were selected as respondents in this study. Information was collected using a questionnaire consisting of section A which includes of background information on the respondents; section B contains two sets of non-routine mathematical questions, meanwhile section C contains the Emotional Intelligence Inventory adapted from the Emotional Intelligence Inventory USM (USMEQ-i). The results show that the level of the Form Two students' emotional intelligence was high.
