Abstract

This research aims to understand the result of mathematical learning of Class IV student in elementary school. (1) Discovering the influence of the Contextual Approach to the student’s motivation. (2) Discovering whether the Contextual Approach can increase student’s motivation by equalizing the denominator for the class IV students. The Research uses descriptive method by using inferential statistical analysis technique. “Descriptive method is a method that focuses to solving current and actual issues. Inferential statistical technique is a statistical method to analyses sample data and creating general inference for the population.” (Nisfiannoor, 2009:4). The approach used by the research is the quantitative approach. Quantitative approach is a research approach that uses statistical technique to test hypotheses and research instrument to be used to uncover data in a certain measurement scale, to be able to create a generalized statement for the whole population. (Sudjana and Ibrahim, 2004:8). There are several conclusions to be inferred from the result of the research. From the cyclical analysis, the improvement of the learning capacity was successfully implemented in the cycle I, cycle II, or even cycle III. Cycle I experienced an increase in average class scores from 42 to 72. Cycle II also experienced increasing from 72 to 81. While Cycle III experienced increasing from 81 to 83. The increases in scores are due to the improvement in the teacher’s teaching method by implementing contextual approach. The approach ultimately increases the students’ enjoyment of the learning, leading to an increase in the motivation for learning, therefore increasing the result of the learning itself. If the learning result improves, the quality of the education in the school also improves.
