Math Module, Creative Thinking, Realistic Mathematics Education.



In the 21st century learning, students must have creative thinking. The limitations of teaching materials that facilitate students to think creatively are still lacking. This study aims to describe the mathematics teaching materials needed to increase student creativity in the learning process. This research uses descriptive qualitative. The subjects of the research were the eighth grade junior high school students. Data collection instruments used was observation, interviews, and questionnaires. Interview guidelines are given to teachers and students to analyze the mathematics teaching material used. The observation guide is used to observe the learning model used by the teacher during the learning process. Questionnaire is given to students to get student characteristics data. The results showed that: the teaching materials used did not facilitate students creative thinking so students needed teaching materials to improve their creative thinking and teachers needed mathematics teaching materials in the form of module-based learning models that could increase the creativity of their students.
