Indirect Learning Strategy with Sociodrama Learning Method in Mathematics Subject
Keywords:Learning Strategy, Socio-drama, Mathematics
A teacher must be able to adapt to changing conditions and keep up with developments in the field. Teachers are expected to help improve the learning environment and make learning activities more meaningful by using new strategies. Therefore, there is no sense of boredom, monotony, or saturation during the teaching and learning process. Teachers can choose innovative learning strategies based on the subject matter they teach from various models and types. The method used in this article is descriptive analytic, namely by describing the theories according to experts. Then the author analyses it to find the similarities between the two, in learning mathematics not many have used the sociodrama method. Besides learning mathematics requires high concentration, it tends to be difficult to combine arithmetic material with drama. The design this time the teacher formed a method of learning mathematics on the material of large integers with sosio-drama (playing markets) or buying and selling in the market. In its implementation, sociodrama learning can foster students' creativity by involving them in the preparation of scenarios and dialogues. In learning mathematics, not many have used the sociodrama method. In addition to learning to hone their large whole number calculations, they learn to be careful in looking at the price list. They learn to act out their roles well and even learn to bargain for goods.
