This study is classroom action research that aims to improve students’ mathematics learning outcomes of SMP Negeri 3 Makassar through contextual teaching-learning. The way of the study covered four-step namely planning, action, observation, and reflection. The research subjects were grade VII6 students of SMP Negeri 3, which covered 39. The study took place for two cycles. Data gathering was administered by using a learning outcomes test and by observing teaching activities. The data collected were analyzed using descriptive analysis. The results of the descriptive study showed that: (1) after executing the action of contextual teaching and learning, there was an improvement of the average score of mathematics learning outcomes of grade VII6 student of SMP Negeri 3 Makassar in the topic of a triangle, which was 59.61 at the end of the first cycle and became 74.92 at the end of the second cycle, (2) after executing the action of contextual teaching and learning, there was an improvement of the mastery of mathematics learning of grade VII6 students of SMP Negeri 3 Makassar in the topic of a triangle, which was 48.72% at the end of the first cycle and became 89.74% at the end of the second cycle, (3) the students’ responses toward the implementation of contextual teaching and learning tended to be positive, such as mathematics was more attractive, more enjoyable and easier to understand and the students’ knowledge more developed, (4)students’ interest attention and motivation improved in learning.
