PENERAPAN PENDEKATAN REALISTIC MATHEMATIC EDUCATION (RME) UNTUK MENINGKATKAN KEMAMPUAN BERPIKIR METAFORA PESERTA DIDIK SMP

Nurfitri Nurfitri, Dinny Mardiana

Abstract


The research was motivated by low students’ thinking ability. One of alternative that can be applied to improve students' metaphorical thinking ability was the Realistic Mathematic Education (RME) approach. The aims of this study was find out the improvement of students’ metaphorical thinking ability using RME approach compared with conventional learning, and students' response to mathematics learning using RME approach. The research method was quasi-experimental method, with non equivalent pretest-posttest control group design. The research was conducted in one of the Private Junior High Schools in Sumedang District. The research population was all students of class VIII, class VIII C as experimental class and VIII D as control class. RME approach was given to the experimental class, while conventional learning was given to the control class. The instruments used were metaphorical thinking skills test, student's questionnaire, and observation sheets of educator. The results of the research are qualitative and quantitative datas. Based on the analysis of metaphorical thinking ability test results obtained conclusion: improvement of students' metaphorical thinking ability by using RME approach better than students with conventional approach, and students’ respond positively to learning mathematics by using RME approach.
