The aim of this research was to find out the effect of Think-Pair-Share learning with contextual approach on students’ mathematics problem solving ability. The static group comparison design was used as the research design. This research used test method with the research instrument of problem solving ability. The subject of the research was junior high school students, consisted of two groups, namely experimental group and control group. The experimental group was the class which was given treatment of Think-Pair-Share learning with contextual approach, while the control group was the class which was not given any treatment. The result of the research indicated that the students’ problem-solving ability in the experimental group was better than the control group. This shows that Think-Pair-Share learning with contextual approach has an effect on students’ problem solving ability. Therefore, Think-Pair-Share learning with contextual approach can be used as a reference to conduct learning in mathematics class as well as to train students’ problem-solving ability. Further research that need to be conducted is to explore the increase of students’ problem-solving ability on the different academic level.
