Abstract

Creative thinking skills (CTS) are said to be one of the fundamental things in facing current challenges. In addition, students also need this creative thinking ability to solve various mathematical problems. For this reason, an appropriate approach such as Realistic Mathematical Education (RME) is needed to support these skills. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of applying the RME approach to students' mathematical creative thinking abilities. The research design used was a pretest-posttest control group design. The research sample was 72 people. The research data was collected using a test instrument totaling 5 numbers. Based on the results of data analysis, superiority was found for the experimental class, indicating that the treatment given had a positive influence on students' abilities. This fact contributes to teachers implementing RME in the future, including on other students' abilities.
