Abstract

Mathematics and Islam are interconnected one another. Muslims need to apply mathematical knowledge in order to fulfil some Muslim obligations. One of the obligation in Islam is alms. This paper aims to portray the researcher’s experiences as a Muslim in implementing alms in order to look for dominant mathematical concepts regarding the implementation. The study uses an auto|ethnographical approach and literature study. The auto│ethnographical approach allows each participant including the researcher to dive back into the values of alms that are meaningful when becoming a teacher and an elementary school student. Through these two approaches, the results found that the context of alms can be used in learning mathematics. Mathematical concepts in the second-grade elementary school, namely, the addition and subtraction operations are the dominant concepts mostly emerging in all stories. Those concepts also can be found in the all 34 Quranic verses which contains the value of alms. Such an alms-based mathematics learning empowers students to be more aware of how to spend their money with sincerity to help others. The study suggested to use the context of alms within mathematics learning so that it can help to build up students’ good character.
