This thesis aims to know the effectiveness of the Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) approach to improve students’ creativity in learning mathematics by using some indicators on the students’ exhaustiveness score, the student’s activity in the learning process, and the students’ response toward the learning process of mathematics. This research was conducted in the Junior High School of UNISMUH of Makassar. This research used pre-experimental with pretest-posttest and was done within 3 weeks. The procedure of this research was included in preparation, implementation and report. The data collection technique was testing, students’ activity observation, students’ response questionnaire and documentation. The data analysis used descriptive statistical analysis and inferential statistical analysis. The sampling of this research was the students of VIII.A1 grade of Junior High School of UNISMUH Makassar which consisted of 25 students. The results obtained from the indicators of students’ exhaustiveness show that the classical test individually 100% that there is no student has a higher score than KKM. While in the posttest, there are 19 students, or 76%, who pass the minimum score criteria (KKM), and there are six students or 24% who do not pass the KKM. The students’ response toward the approach increased by 75% and the student’s activity in the learning process by implementing Education Mathematics Realistic (RME) approach is good.
