Implementation, ethnomatematics of “Museum Kereta”, learning outcomes


Technological developments in education have gradually shifted conventional methods. Online learning that is carried out in a relatively long time results in students experiencing burnout which reduces student interest and learning outcomes. In addition, frequent online activities by students can have a negative impact on eroding noble cultural values. To overcome these problems, an innovation in learning is needed. The purpose of this study was to analyze student interest and learning outcomes after the implementation of ethnomatematics-based mathematics teaching materials at the “Museum Kereta†of Yogyakarta Palace. The type of research used is quasi-experimental research with one group pretest-posttest. The research was conducted online with 17 students of grade VI SDN 3 Sukodono in the academic year 2020/2021. The research procedure was carried out in three stages, namely pretest, implementation of teaching materials, and posttest. Collecting data in this study using interest questionnaires and learning outcomes tests. The results of the questionnaire were analyzed based on the average classical score and based on indicators of interest. The pretest and posttest results were analyzed using t-test. The results showed that after the implementation of ethnomatematics-based mathematics teaching materials of learning interest is at high criteria and student learning outcomes become optimal.
