This study aims to get the modeling assignments in the form of student worksheets to study mathematics in high school using financial context. This study uses a development research method consisting of preliminary and formative evaluation. At the preliminary stage includes analysis, design, and development.
Whereas the formative evaluation stage includes self-evaluation, expert review, one to one, small group and field tests. And large group classes are also equipped with videos, field notes, and student interviews to support existing data in the field. The criterion for the success of this study is to produce student worksheets based on a valid and practical modeling approach as a source of student learning. The subjects of this study were high school students in the city of Palembang. Data were collected and analyzed using Tessmer, (2006). In addition, it is supported by data in one-to-one groups, small groups to gain practicaly. And the last of the field test group data also explains students commenting and giving interviews related to student worksheets to get the potential for mathematical modeling ability. Based on validation, practicality evaluations and field trials can be concluded that the modeling assignment in the form of student worksheets (LKPD) based on modeling designed using financial contexts in mathematics learning in schools is valid, practical and has potential effects.
