Abstract
This study aims to describe the quality of mathematical communication skills of students who are given learning using the Realistic Mathematics Learning approach to the fraction material. This type of research is a qualitative descriptive case study. The subjects of this study were 40 grade students of Medan Markus Private Elementary School, then the subjects were analyzed qualitatively in terms of ability indicators (high, medium and low), aspects of errors and aspects of empty answers. The research instruments consisted of: tests of mathematical communication skills and interview guide sheets. Data analysis techniques include data collection, data reduction, data presentation, and drawing conclusions. The results showed that mathematics learning in class V at Markus Medan elementary school was still not optimal, this was due to the lack of trust of students in solving the problems given which was seen from students who were less enthusiastic and did not pay attention to the implementation of learning, and mathematical communication skills of class V students. Overall students’ mathematical communication skills are good. This is because most students have met several indicators of mathematical communication skills, namely the ability to connect real objects to mathematical ideas, the ability to express everyday events with mathematical symbols in presenting mathematical ideas in writing and the ability to explain ideas. daily situations and mathematical relations, in writing or in pictures. In this study, students can describe the appropriate structure on the problem, namely the area of the garden.
