Assessing a new Indonesian secondary mathematics textbook: how does it promote authentic learning?
Assessing a new Indonesian secondary mathematics textbook: how does it promote authentic learning?
Indonesia has implemented its new national curriculum since 2013, and accordingly the Ministry of Education and Culture has published the new textbooks for all subjects, including mathematics. This study aims to examine how the new mathematics textbooks reflect one of the features of the new curriculum, that is, authentic learning. The study focuses on to what extent authentic tasks are presented in the textbooks. For this purpose, we established a framework for analysing the mathematics tasks presented in the textbooks. The year 7 mathematics textbook was selected and the analysis was carried out through two layers. First, all the mathematics tasks were classified into two categories: authentic tasks and non-authentic tasks. Second, the authentic tasks were further categorized into two different levels of authenticity, which are real authentic and semi-authentic. Furthermore, the analysis also compares the authenticity of mathematics tasks between topics of mathematics. The results show that only about 22 percent of the tasks were authentic tasks which comprise 19 percent semi-authentic tasks and 3 percent authentic tasks. The findings of the study suggest that there is room for improvement of the textbook

Abstract

Indonesia has implemented its new national curriculum since 2013, and accordingly the Ministry of Education and Culture has published the new textbooks for all subjects, including mathematics. This study aims to examine how the new mathematics textbooks reflect one of the features of the new curriculum, that is, authentic learning. The study focuses on to what extent authentic tasks are presented in the textbooks. For this purpose, we established a framework for analysing the mathematics tasks presented in the textbooks. The year 7 mathematics textbook was selected and the analysis was carried out through two layers. First, all the mathematics tasks were classified into two categories: authentic tasks and non-authentic tasks. Second, the authentic tasks were further categorized into two different levels of authenticity, which are real authentic and semi-authentic. Furthermore, the analysis also compares the authenticity of mathematics tasks between topics of mathematics. The results show that only about 22 percent of the tasks were authentic tasks which comprise 19 percent semi-authentic tasks and 3 percent authentic tasks. The findings of the study suggest that there is room for improvement of the textbook
