Abstract


Abstract This research is motivated by the problem, the low level of self-esteem of students. The purpose of this study was to determine the increase in self-esteem of students with realistic mathematics education in mathematics learning, and to determine student responses to mathematics learning with realistic mathematics learning. This type of research is descriptive research through questionnaire analysis. The instrument used is a self-esteem questionnaire to see self-esteem abilities that have been tested and a questionnaire to see student responses. In this study, data were obtained to see the increase in self-esteem of students with realistic mathematics education in learning mathematics and to see student responses to learning mathematics using mathematics education which were analyzed using a Likert attitude scale. The scale in this self-esteem contains four components, namely: students' assessments of (1) their ability (capability) in mathematics, (2) their success (successfulness) in mathematics, (3) their significance in mathematics, and (4) goodness (worthiness) himself in mathematics The conclusion obtained in this study related to self-esteem in mathematics is that it can be seen as a whole using a realistic mathematical education. It shows that there are 86.56 percent of students giving positive responses.

 

Keywords self-esteem, junior high school students, realistic mathematic education.  

 

Abstrak Penelitian ini dilatarbelakangi oleh permasalahan, rendahnya tingkat kemampuan self-esteem siswa. Tujuan penelitian ini adalah untuk mengetahui peningkatan kemampuan self-esteem siswa dengan pendidikan matematika realistik dalam pembelajaran matematika, dan untuk mengetahui respon siswa terhadap pembelajaran matematika dengan pembelajaran matematika realistik. Jenis penelitian ini adalah penelitian deskriptif melalui analisis angket. Instrumen yang digunakan adalah angket self-esteem untuk melihat kemampuan self-esteem yang telah diujikan dan angket untuk melihat respon siswa. Dalam penelitian ini, data diperoleh untuk melihat peningkatan kemampuan self-esteem siswa dengan pendidikan matematika realistik dalam pembelajaran matematika dan untuk melihat respon siswa terhadap pembelajaran matematika menggunakan pendidikan matematika yang dianalisis menggunakan skala sikap Likert. Skala dalam self-esteem ini memuat empat komponen yaitu: penilaian siswa tentang (1) kemampuan (capability) dirinya dalam matematika, (2) keberhasilan (successfulness) dirinya dalam matematika, (3) kemanfaatan (significance) dirinya dalam matematika, dan (4) kebaikan (worthiness) dirinya dalam matematika Kesimpulan yang diperoleh dalam penelitian ini terkait self-esteem dalam matematika adalah dapat dilihat secara keseluruhan dengan menggunakan pendekatan matematika realistik menunjukkan terdapat 86,56 persen siswa memberikan respon positif.

 

Kata kunci self-esteem, siswa SMP, pendekatan matematika realistik.
