Abstract

The mathematics teaching and learning processes place less emphasis on the ability of understanding and communication in mathematics. Teaching and learning mathematics with cooperative Team-Games-Tournament (TGT) can improve the attitude, cooperation and sharing of knowledge of mathematics among students. This study aims to evaluate the understanding, communication, mathematics achievement and attitude of students and teachers on TGT cooperative learning and explore their perceptions of it. This study used quantitative and qualitative methods involving experiments, questionnaires and interviews. The participants of this study involve 64 Form 11 students of Madrasah Aliyah Riau, Indonesia. Data collection was conducted three times, i.e., the pretest, posttest 1 and posttest 2, which lasted for five weeks each after the pre and posttest. Mathematics test consists of 10 items for comprehension and communication, which were adapted from the Indonesian National Examination (INE). Mathematics attitude was measured using 19 items adapted from Arsaythamby in 2006 while the 20 items used to measure students’ attitudes towards TGT were adapted from Slavin’s in 1995. Semi-structured interviews and observations were used to obtain students’ and teachers’ views on TGT cooperative activities and learning. The findings show that the assessment of TGT towards comprehension, communication and mathematics attitude can improve mathematics achievement. Interviews show that TGT cooperative learning increases interest, motivation and mathematics knowledge sharing among students as compared with conventional learning. This study contributes to knowledge about enhancing effective teaching, active group activities, competition which improves attitudes among students, and mutual help in the teaching of mathematics. TGT encourages students and teachers to be innovative and creative in improving the teaching and learning of mathematics in the classroom, and this can be advantageous to Madrasah Aliyah students when they compete with public schools’ students in mathematics.
