Abstract

Since 2001, Indonesia has introduced Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) which is one of the innovative learning approach today. This research is a quasi-experimental study to determine the effectiveness of Realistic Mathematics Education approach to mathematics belief, problem solving skills, and mathematics representatives. Experimental studies involved 645 students at a Junior High School at first grade in Pekanbaru, Riau, Indonesia. A total of 219 students were grouped in the first experiment group, 209 students were in the second experiment groups, and 217 students were in the controlled group. Analysis is involving descriptive and inferential analysis. Descriptive analysis consists of frequency, percentage, average, and standard deviation, while the inferential analysis consists of T -test, one-way Anova, and two-ways Anova. Analysis of experimental studies showed that there is a significant differences among students in their mathematics belief, there is a significant differences between the groups and student’s ability level, there is also a significant differences in problem solving skills based on groups. There is a significant differences in problem solving skill between groups and student’s ability level and student’s ability level in problem solving skills in arithmetic topics and ratio as well. And, there is a significant difference on the mathematical representative based on groups.
