    Abstract

    This paper reports on results of the final phase of a four-year study called CASCADE-IMEI. The project aims at designing, evaluating and implementing a learning environment (LE) which intends to introduce Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) to (prospective) mathematics teachers in Indonesia. This paper, first, describes mathematics education reform in Indonesia since Soeharto's regime was destroyed in 1998. Then, the background of the RME theory and the description of the learning environment are presented. Finally, the tentative changes on student teachers and pupils with regard to the concept of 'democracy classroom' will be presented as the starting point for discussing in the conference.
