Abstract


This research aims at investigating the effectiveness of realistic mathematics learning in improving the understanding of multiplication concept of elementary school students. This study was positivistic approach, conducted by conceptual and operational, started by compiling hypothesis then followed a set of instrument designed to obtain the quantitative information so that it can be analyzed by statistical method to test the proposed hypothesis. The data were collected by using pre-test and post-test as instrument. Examination of research hypothesis used statistical analysis of t test. The result of analysis shows t test value of -6.68 with value of p 0.000, so that Ho refused. It means that the mean of post-test is higher than pre-test. It shows the significant improvement of student's understanding of multiplication concept after given treatment by realistic learning. Finally it can be said that learning by realistic mathematics approach is effective to improve the understanding of multiplication concept for students of  elementary school.
