Sari, Puspita; Hajizah, Mimi Nur; Purwanto, Swida – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2020
The number line and the neutralization model have been used very extensively in teaching integer additions and subtractions for decades. Despite their advantages, issues concerning subtractions on these models are still debatable. Therefore, the neutralization on an empty number line (NNL) model is proposed in this research to help students better…

Astuti, Puji – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2014
This paper aims to describe how students develop understanding of one-digit decimals. To achieve the aim, Local Instruction Theory (LIT) about the process of learning decimals and the means designed to support that learning are developed. Along with this idea, the framework of Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) is proposed. Based on the aim,…

Rianasari, Veronika Fitri; Budayasa, I Ketut; Patahuddin, Sitti Maesuri – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2012
Many researches revealed that pupils often find difficulties to understand percentage although they are able to recite percent as per hundred and carry out the computations correctly. This might happen due to the way in which the learning percentage has been taught that tends to focus on procedures and recall instead of getting a real…

Khairunnisak, Cut; Maghfirotun, Siti; Juniati, Amin Dwi; de Haan, Dede – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2012
The meaning of fractions with integer multiplication is something that is difficult to understand by students. They tend to think that the product it produces a larger number, while the multiplication of fractions with integers, the result can be any number larger or smaller. This study is a research design that aims to develop a local…

Revina, Shintia; Zulkardi; Darmawijoyo; van Galen, Frans – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2011
Many prior researches found that most of students in grade five tended to have difficulty in fully grasping the concept of volume measurement because they have to build their competence in spatial structuring. The unit of volume "packing" measurement must be integrated and coordinated in three-dimension. On the other hand, it is revealed…
