The Effect of Learning Models Realistic Mathematics Education(RME) on Mathematics Learning Outcomes of Grade IV Elementary School Students

Ulfiana U, Agustan Syamsuddin, A. Husniati


This study aims to determine the approach of Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) to the mathematics learning outcomes of fourth grade students at SD Negeri Ujung Tanah II Makassar City. This research is a quantitative research using quasi-experimental method. The design used in this study is a quasi nonequivalent control group design. This design was conducted to determine whether there was a difference between the experimental class and the control class by giving a pretest before being given treatment and a posttest after being given treatment. The population in this study were all fourth grade elementary school students from six public elementary schools located in cluster II, Ujung Tanah District, Makassar City, the samples taken were students in grades IV A and IV B at SD Negeri Ujung Tanah II Makassar City. Data collection techniques using questionnaires, tests and documentation. The data analysis technique used was the independent sample t-test. The results of this study indicate the effect of mathematics learning outcomes given in the form of applying the Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) approach compared to students who are not given treatment. The application of Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) is stated to be influential because it increases the potential of students which are used to develop their own knowledge, through exploration of various problems, both problems of daily life and mathematical problems. Based on the independent sample t-test on the hypothesis, the sig value was obtained. 0.001 < 0.05 then Ho is rejected and H1 is accepted,
