Abstract : Students in middle school learned “system of two linear equations” materials
focusing on the procedural steps of problem solving provided, they become difficult if given
problems with higher levels or different problems. This is because the ability of students
mathematical reasoning is relatively low. This is in accordance with the results of PISA tests
and evaluations (Programme for International Students Assessment) in 2015 Indonesian
students for mathematics ranked 63 out of 69 countries evaluated, it is also seen from
observations and interviews with teachers. One way to overcome this problem is developing
the learning design using Realistic Mathematics Education (RME). In this research, the
instructional design developed is LIT, teacher book and student book. The purpose of this
research is to developing the characteristics of learning design topic system of two linear
equations (SPLDV) based on RME in class VIII SMP that valid, practical and effective. This
research will be combine two types of design research that is design research of Tjeerd
Plomp and Gravemeijer & Cobb. Implementation of learning trajectory, teacher book and
student book using design research Plomp. Then, for the development of learning trajectory,
designed by using design research Gravemeijer & Cobb. Validation is done by an expert or
lecturer of Mathematics Education, Educational Technology, and Language. Practicality
seen from the observation learning implementation, questionnaire practicality and interviews
with students and teachers. Effectiveness seen from the results of student activities and the
final test of learning. The data is analyzed descriptively.
