### MEASURING STUDENTS’ MATHEMATICAL LITERACY IN CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE MATHEMATICS CLASSROOM

#### Abstract

**the domain of PISA 2015 questions on every level of mathematical proficiency skills. The research finds that (1) culturally responsive mathematics teaching gives positive effect to students’ mathematical literacy; (2) the level of mathematical literacy of MAN 1 Takengon**

**students**

**lie**

**s**from level 1 to level 5. There was no student who able to achieve 6

^{th}level of mathematical literacy; and (3) After culturally responsive mathematics teaching was implemented, from 24 students, there were 4 students at 1

^{st}level, 7 students at 2

^{nd}level, 10 students at 3

^{rd}level, and 2 students at 4

^{th}level, and 1 student at 5

^{th}level of mathematical literacy.
