Rahaju Rahaju, Rahutami Rahutami

Abstract

This study aimed to apply Indonesian monopoly game which could develop communicative character in mathematics learning. The method descriptive was used with the subject of 40 students of grade IV elementary school. The results showed that the development of communicative character listening attentively occured at the stage of reading questions, determining answers, presenting answers, teacher explanations, and reading information’s. The character expressing opinions was developing at the stage of determining answers and presenting answers. The development of a character communicating to provide information took place at the stage of reading questions and information in the certificate. The factor that encouraged willingness growth in listening attentively was an element of competition in the game, while the encouragement in expressing an opinion was a fun and non-stressful learning environment. The character communicating well was due to curiosity. A good learning process through the game was not just as entertainment, but also developing aspects of cognitive, psychomotor, and even affective. Through a game, students learned mathematics in good shape. This eliminated fear, raised curiosity, and affected the development of communicative characters.
