[Full Text]



Luluk Mauluah, Marsigit



Elementary mathematics, ethnomathematics, Kraton Yogyakarta, learning resources.



This paper is the exploration study analyzes data from Kraton Yogyakarta, about learning resources for elementary mathematics. Learning mathematics in elementary school using cultural wealth can make the learning process more meaningful. What learning resources can be identified from Kraton Yogyakarta as ethnomathematics study, that can be used for elementary mathematics? The technics to collect data for this qualitative research are observation and documentation. Data analysis gives a result on the tabulation of resources from Kraton Yogyakarta with basic competences, grade and Ambrosio’s category. The finding of the research: there are many ethnomathematics learning resources at Kraton Yogyakarta : Gunungan sekaten, batik, sengkalan, Sultan Agung calendar, Bangsal Manganti, Kraton stairs, Kraton ceramics at Bangsal Pagelaran, etc. The ethnomathematics resources can be used as media for mathematics learning about: measuring length, area, volume, tessellation, shape, pattern, common multiple, common divisor, and multiplication. Based on identification carried out by the researcher, learning resources in Kraton Yogyakarta were obtained fulfilling for the first grade to the sixth grade. By using the six subject: counting, weighing, measuring, sorting, comparing, and classifying of D’Ambrosio’s category, there were five categories that could be used. The five subjects are counting, weighing, measuring, comparing, and classifying. The sorting did not occur in the finding learning resources.
