    Abstract

    There are 2 questions that will answer in this paper, namely (1) what the contexts that can be used to introduce the meaning of the multiplication and division of two fractions, and (2) how to use these contexts to construct the student’s understanding about the meaning of the multiplication and division of two fractions. Learning approaches used in designing the teaching-learning process was realistic mathematics education (RME). Student materials were developed by the researcher for fifth grade elementary school students. The type of research is used by researcher in this study is the design research developed by Gravemeijer and Cobb. According to Gravemeijer and Cobb (in Akker, Gravemeijer, McKeney, & Nieveen, 2006), there are three phases in the design research, namely (1) the preparation of the trial design, (2) the trial design, and (3) a retrospective analysis. The results which were presented in this paper were limited to the first phase of three phases of the design research. There were several contexts that could be developed in this study to introduce the meaning of multiplication and division of two fractions, namely (1) dividing bread for two groups of students, (2) comparing three pieces of bread, and (3) analyzing student answers. Keywords: multiplication of fractions, division of fractions, realistic mathematics education (RME), design research.
