Even in culture even though learning mathematics is tucked away. The culture that is most familiar among students is the traditional game. One of these traditional games is “Gatric”. Playing gatrik means students have learned some activities in mathematics. The purpose of writing this paper is to show the mathematical activities that exist in the Gatric game.
