Jaelani, Anton; Putri, Ratu Ilma Indra; Hartono, Yusuf – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2013
Understanding of measuring time has difficulty for children because it is intangible. Standard units often used directly by teacher for learning time measurement. Many researches involved games in designing learning material to facilitate fun and meaningful learning for children. For this reason, learning of time measurement that connects with…

Haris, Denny; Ilma, Ratu – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2011
Many researches showed that the most of students find the difficulty in measuring area. The formula of area tends to be taught directly without involving the conceptual basis and the area measurement are separated from children's daily experiences. For this reason, the teaching and learning of area measurement was designed and link to a set of…

Rizkianto, Ilham; Zulkardi; Darmawijaya – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2013
Previous studies have provided that when learning shapes for the first time, young children tend to use the prototype as the reference point for comparisons, but often fail when doing so since they do not yet think about the defining attributes or the geometric properties of the shapes. Most of the time, elementary students learn geometric…

Funny, Rindu Alriavindra – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2014
The first idea that must be understood by the students to learn the concept of concept of conservation of area is recomposing shape. In recomposing shape, the students will see the fact that the shape can be transformed into a different form without adding or losing the part of the shape. So the students could conclude that the area of the shape…

Prahmana, Rully Charitas Indra; Zulkardi; Hartono, Yusuf – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2012
Several previous researches showed that students had difficulty in understanding the basic concept of multiplication. Students are more likely to be introduced by using formula without involving the concept itself. This underlies the researcher to design a learning trajectory of learning multiplication using Permainan Tradisional Tepuk Bergambar…

Sari, Elisabet Ayunika Permata; Juniati, Dwi; Patahudin, Sitti Maesuri – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2012
Fractions varied meanings is one of the causes of difficulties in learning fractions. These students should be given greater opportunities to explore the meaning of fractions before they learn the relationship between fractions and operations on fractions. Although students shading an area represents a fraction, it does not mean they really…

Nasrullah; Zulkardi – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2011
In line with design research, the use of Bermain Satu Rumah (BSR) as traditional game to support children's counting classroom wherein students are encouraged to construct mathematical understanding. Number in traditional games is an interesting aspect that is helpful for children to encounter numerous situations that bring them into contact with…

Winarti, Destina Wahyu; Amin, Siti Maghfirotun; Lukito, Agung; Van Gallen, Frans – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2012
Learning the concept of perimeter and area is not easy for students in grade 3 of primary school. A common mistake is that students think that if the area is the same, the perimeter also has to be the same. It is difficult for them to understand that for a given area, there are many possibilities of perimeter and vice versa. When student are not…

Yuberta, Kurnia Rahmi; Zulkardi; Hartono, Yusuf; van Galen, Frans – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2011
Many researchers found that students have difficulties in understanding area measurement. Students mostly focus on applying formula to find the area of certain shapes without knowing what the area is and why the formula works. It is important for the students to know what attribute being measured and to construct the unit for area measurement.…

Shin, Mikyung; Bryant, Diane Pedrotty – Remedial and Special Education, 2015
This study synthesized intervention studies focusing on instruction to improve fraction skills. Seventeen studies met the inclusion criteria: being published in English-language peer-reviewed journals or dissertations between 1975 and 2014, and targeting 3rd- through 12th-grade students struggling to learn mathematics. From the "Common Core…
