Edmodo, Rembang Culture, Problem Based Learning, Mathematical Literacy


One of the educational attentions in Indonesia recently was literacy by the existence of “Gerakan Literasi Sekolahâ€. In the context of mathematics learning, it is also necessary to train mathematical literacy of JHS students. The purpose of this article is to describe the role of Problem Based Learning based on Rembang culture assisted by Edmodo to train mathematical literacy of JHS students in Rembang. Results of theoretical analysis showed that Problem Based Learning can be used to train mathematical literacy because it facilitates the students to have an authentic investigation in a real problems solving. A learning process will be more meaningful if the given problems can be found in the daily life, such as problems which are related to the local culture of Rembang. In order to optimalize such learning process, Edmodo can be used as a supportive media to make a more meaningful and fun learning atmosphere. Therefore, Problem Based Learning based on Rembang culture assisted by Edmodo can be used to train mathematical literacy of JHS students.
