Abstract

This paper reports on the results of a four-year study called CASCADE-IMEI that is a learning environment (LE) in the form of a face-to-face course and a web site (www.clix.to/zulkardi ) which aims to introduce Realistic Mathematics Education (RME), Dutch approach to mathematics education, as an innovative teaching methods in Indonesia trough prospective mathematics teachers in initial teacher education. It also presents the background of mathematics reform in Indonesia by adapting RME as a promising approach. Then, the paper describes the process of a development research approach in which three prototypes of the LE have been developed and evaluated both by prospective mathematics teachers in Indonesian Educational University in Bandung and several experts in the Netherlands. Finally, it will discuss the changes on the prospective mathematics teachers after they followed the LE program with a more detailed on their teaching performance in junior secondary mathematics classroom.
