Abstract

This study aims to determine the effects of the Indonesian Realistic Mathematics Education (PMRI) in Aceh primary schools, Indonesia.Although a plethora of research evidence highlights significant outcomes of the incorporation PMRI in mathematics, its use in the teaching and learning process is limited.Total of 50 standard five students from public primary school participated in this study; 25 students in the experimental group and 25 in the control group.The teaching approaches varied between the groups.While the experimental group experienced the PMRI approach, the control group encountered the conventional teaching approach of chalk and talk.Data was collected at two points namely the pre-test and post-test that lasted for five weeks.The results showed significant differences in mathematics achievement among primary students.In addition, PMRI also creates an active learning environment in solving exercises, and discussions among students and teachers. This study provides evidence that learning mathematics with PMRI benefits primary school students.
