Integrating Mathematics Literacy and Mathematics Teaching and Learning in a Mathematics Class

Nurcholif Diah Sri Lestari, Abi Suwito

Abstract


Having a mathematical literacy means not only mastery the mathematics content but also able to use it in daily live. As it does not include in Indonesia’s mathematics curriculum explicitly then the teaching and learning of mathematics should integrate both the teaching and learning of mathematics and mathematical literacy. Mathematics problem solving performance modeling as the framework and the local culture as the context of the problem can be applied to integrate both of them. This paper aimed to describe how the integration be conducted in the mathematics teaching and learning. For this purpose, a set of instructional instrument has been developed and implemented at three classes of two schools. Observation of the teaching and learning process, and the students-teacher interaction are taken. Based on the research, both the using of local culture as the context, and habituation of problem solving would attract the students to learn and strengthen students’s mathematical literacy.
