    Abstract

    This designing is based on the fact that the teaching materials that can improve the creative thinking ability of students through Realistic Mathematic Education (RME) are unavailable. These materials are essential because the learning process that facilitates the development of creative thinking skills could challenge the students to optimally develop their potential thinking. Also, the mathematics teaching materials that are appropriate and the presenting of the mathematics problems that are interesting and challenging, such as the problems related to daily activities, could produce a high quality learning process. The objective of this study is to develop teaching materials based on RME that are valid, practical, and effective to develop mathematical creative thinking ability of junior high school students. Through these teaching materials, students are expected to be benefited, namely (a) mastering the mathematics materials, (b) increasing creative thinking abilities (CTA), and (c) understanding the benefits of mathematics for life. The method used in this design is refers to the development research. The development of teaching materials in this paper is in the preliminary study stage where the materials entering the design stage (prototyping). Keywords: design of teaching materials, creative thinking, Realistic Mathematic Education (RME)
