Abstract


The results of students' mathematics learning, especially in the one variable linear equation is still not yet as expected. The low result of learning are certainly caused by the learning process that held by the teacher which is less meaningful  to the  students. One of the efforts of teachers to help students achieve learning goals is through the implementation of learning with an approach that makes mathematic subject close to student life. One approach that can be applied to teachers in mathematics learning is contextual approach. Contextual approach is a learning approach that presents a mathematical problem in the form of real problems close to the life and experience of students. The purpose of this paper is to present the results of students' mathematics learning through the application of contextual approach. This research data is data about the results of students' mathematics learning after learning with contextual approach implemented. Data obtained through the results of student learning achievement test. Data were analyzed by comparing the test scores of students with a minimum completeness criteria (KKM) on the material of the variable linear equations. The results showed that the learning results of students who are taught through the application of contextual approach already achieve the effectiveness. It can help students achieve the learning objectives of this study. The implication of this research is the contextual approach needs to be implemented in the learning of mathematics to other material relevant as to provide opportunities for students to build their own understanding through everyday problems.
