    Abstract

    This paper deals with the design and evaluation of a 'rich' learning environment (LE) for assisting student teachers in Indonesia learning and teaching realistic mathematics education (RME), a Dutch mathematics education approach. The LE can be rich in the sense that: (1) it has of two main environments i.e. a web site and a face-to-face course; (2) it uses various of tools such as Java applet simulation programs, online communication and video clips (the web) as well as a full video as well (the course); and (3) it provides student teachers experiences in teaching practice in the secondary school classroom environment. Using development research approach, three prototypes of LE have been developed in Holland and evaluated mainly in Indonesia. However, in this paper is only focused on the results of the third prototype of the LE. Results suggest that the LE program potentially effective in assisting student teachers understanding RME and in improving their performance in teaching mathematics using realistic approach in the schools.
