Abstract

Learning can foster students’ character as well as their understanding. Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) is one of learning approach to foster those competences. In this research, the learningbased RME will be supported by using the Geometer's Sketchpad. This study aims to improve the students’ character through Realistic Mathematics Education using Geometer's Sketchpad on proportion topic and analyze the student's learning achievement . The subjects of this research are the 25 eighth grade students in one of public secondary school in Aceh Tamiang, Aceh. Instruments used in the study are character observation sheets and test to assess students’ learning achievement. The data analysis technique used is descriptive analysis. The result of data analysis shows that the implementation of Realistic Mathematics Education using Geometer's Sketchpad in topic of proportion can improve student's critical and creative thinking. In addition student's learning achievement met the minimal mastery criteria.

Abstract

The achievement of Indonesian students in PISA remains unsatisfactory, as evidenced by their scores that are below the baseline level set in PISA. One of the contributing factors is that Indonesian students are less trained in solving problems with characteristics such as in PISA items. Therefore, it is necessary to familiarize Indonesian students with PISA equivalent problems, but the availability of these questions is still limited, especially concerning reasoning ability. In addition, the use of context is also crucial, especially the local contexts, which can help students understand mathematical phenomena from the perspective of their life experiences. The purpose of this study was to develop the questions of PISA equivalent mathematical reasoning ability using the context of Aceh traditional houses. This research used formative evaluation type development research from Tessmer. The results of this study were 12 mathematical questions equivalent to PISA using the context of Aceh traditional house. The potential effect of the questions developed was analyzed based on the student's responses to the questionnaire, including two aspects: 1) students are interested and seriously working on the questions and 2) the students are interested in using the equivalent PISA questions in the future.
