Keywords:Realistic Mathematics Education (RME), motivation learning, learning achievment
Study this low background of motivation and results study tagged math with lack of student involvement in learning as well as the results of the minimum limited. Study this aim to know how to improve motivation and results for mathematics students in class III elementary school Year Teaching 2022/2023 in Bantul on material around stand up flat with an applied approach to Realistic Mathematics Education (RME). Problems in this study is low motivation and results in learning mathematics for students in class III primary school teaching. Type of research used Classroom Action Research (CAR) conducted in two cycles. Each cycle consists of a planning phase, an implementation phase, an observation phase, and a reflection phase. The subject of the study that is the student class III, with a total of 23 students, 11 male students and 12 female students. Data collection techniques include observation, interview, questionnaire, and test. According to the results of the research in cycles I and II, the results of the learning motivation questionnaire in cycle I received a mark percentage of 72% in cycle I and increased to 80% in cycle II in the category good. Achievment learning student in the first cycle, students completed only 16 students with a percentage of 70%, in the cycle II, students experienced an improvement they completed as many as 19 students with a percentage of 83%. So, we can conclude that the application of Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) can increase the motivation and results of teaching mathematics in school.
