Improving Mathematics Learning Outcomes by Using Division Glass Media

Desti Setyarini


The purpose of this study was to determine the positive effect of the use of real media in learning Mathematics on the material for the division of class II Elementary School. Based on previous research, solving distribution problems is done by using stacking methods with lectures without using teaching aids, so this article discusses alternative methods of solving division problems using the media, namely Glass Division. This type of research is a literature study, using secondary data in the form of relevant journals and books. Furthermore, the data were analyzed by conducting an assessment of the advantages and disadvantages and comparing it with the usual method (compiling with lectures). The results showed that solving the distribution problem using the media was easier to understand and attracted the attention of students. The disadvantage of using this media is that it must be fixed on a counting tool, namely the Division Glass so that children do not think abstractly. It is recommended that teachers apply this alternative media in the classroom, especially for students who do not understand the problem of dividing numbers.
