- Teaching and learning mathematics with cooperative Team-Games-Tournament (TGT) has been associated to improving attitude, cooperation and sharing of knowledge of mathematics among students. This study aims to identify the attitude of students on TGT cooperative learning. The participants of this study were 32 grade 11 students of Madrasah Aliyah Riau, Indonesia. Data collection was conducted based on post 1 test that lasted for five weeks obtained after the pre and posttest 1. The Mathematics test consists of 10 items for comprehension and communication which were adapted from the Indonesian National Examination (INE). Mathematics attitude was measured using 20 items which used to measure students' attitudes towards TGT . The findings show that mathematics attitude can improve mathematics achievement. This study contributes to knowledge on enhancing effective teaching, active group activities, competition which improves attitudes among students and mutual help in the teaching of Mathematics. TGT encourages students and teachers to be innovative and creative in improving the teaching and learning of Mathematics in the classroom, and this can be advantageous to Madrasah Aliyah students when they compete with public schools' students in Mathematics.
