    Abstract

    Learning tool is an important factor that can influence the quality of education. A good learning tool should be able to facilitate students in finding and constructing the correct concepts independently, so that their logic and thought pattern can be fully developed. In this research, development of a context-based learning tool that can achieve these goals is shown. The main purpose of this learning tool development is to produce a valid, practical, and effective context-based mathematics learning tool. It is presented in the form of a Lesson Plan and a Student Worksheet. This development research is done using the 4-D model: define, design, develop, and disseminate. The tool validation is done by consulting mathematics, linguistics, and elementary education experts. Practicality is measured using practicality questionnaire for expert, analysis survey, observation sheet, and interviews with the teachers. Effectiveness is measured from students’ learning activities and their learning outcomes. The research results show that the development of context-based learning tool is valid in terms of content and construct. The tool is practical as well since it is clear and easy to use in mathematics learning. The learning tools effectiveness is indicated by the fact that the students are able to reach the classical criterion of learning outcomes and the students’ positive activities are also increased. Based on those results, it can be concluded that a valid, practical, and effective context-based mathematics learning tool for fifth-grade elementary school students has been successfully produced. Keywords: learning tool, context-based learning, fifth-year elementary students
