Abstract

This paper presents a case study about employing Realistic Mathematics Education (RME)-approach to teach mathematics in Indonesian primary schools. Many obstacles, such as the very dependent attitude of the pupils, the pupils who were not used to working in groups, lack of reasoning capability and lack of understanding of basic concepts, were found when the pupils, who were used to the traditional way of teaching, dealt with the new approach (RME). The discussion in this paper is focused on these obstacles and the efforts undertaken to overcome them.
