Abstract:. This research was conducted on class V students of SD Negeri 179 Palembang, with the aim of knowing students' understanding of the percent material by using media download bars. The subjects in this study were 28 students with heterogeneous abilities. The research methodology used in this study is Design Research with a Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) approach. This study fulfilled five characteristics of RME, namely the use of laptops, computers and downloads of the internet (using of context), pictures of download bars (use of models), activities in LKK (pupil own creations and contributions), presentation and group discussion (interactivity) and problems change fractions into percent (intertwining). The results of this study indicate that students have been able to solve the percent problem by using media download bars.
