Abstract

This study focuses on the design and development of student worksheets based on Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) principles aimed at enhancing students' mathematical problem-solving skills. The research adopts a design-based research methodology, involving iterative cycles of design, implementation, analysis, and refinement. The RME approach emphasizes the use of real-world contexts to facilitate meaningful learning and engagement with mathematical concepts. The designed worksheets integrate realistic scenarios, encouraging students to apply mathematical reasoning in practical situations. Preliminary testing with a sample group of middle school students indicates significant improvements in their problem-solving abilities, as evidenced by increased performance in solving complex mathematical tasks. The results suggest that RME-based worksheets are effective tools for promoting deeper understanding and practical application of mathematics. Future work will involve larger-scale testing and further refinement of the worksheets to ensure their efficacy and adaptability across diverse educational settings.
