Mathematics is needed in various branches of knowledge and aspects of life. In everyday life mathematics plays an important role, to master the basic mathematical operations such as arithmetic operations of addition (+), multiplication (X), the reduction of (-), and division (:), it is compulsory for students. However, learning in school today tend to apply the concept of memorizing in learning these operations mainly on the operation of multiplication and division. So that students just memorize the results of the operation without knowing the basic concept of the operations.
For that, in learning this time we design a learning design division by using the context of candy that has been common and very close to the students. Furthermore, we lead the students to find their own concept of division as repeated reduction by implementing a game of “divide the candy with the dice”.
a. Students can learn the concept of division as repeated reductions through the game of “divide the candy with the dice”.
b. Students are able to perform operations with the remainder and division without remainder.
3. DATA DESCRIPTION
In this activity, we started learning to deliver learning objectives and motivate students to concentrate more in this time of learning by doing questions and answers with the students using the context of “divide candy”. Teacher calls one of his students (shasa) and asked him to call some other friends and share some candy to his friends. If students can share fairly (without rest), then the teacher calls another student a couple of extra to get chewing gum so there is not divisible. It is intended to introduce the situation informally about sharing with the rest and without rest.
