Contextual Feature of Worked Examples in Selected Textbooks from Indonesia and Singapore in Pythagorean Theorem Unit
Worked examples are important component of mathematics textbook. In this article, the contextual feature of the worked examples in Pythagorean Theorem unit contained in the selected textbooks from Indonesia and Singapore was compared. The result shows that 50% worked examples in Singaporean textbook are application worked example meanwhile only 16.7% those of Indonesian textbook. However, Indonesian textbook covers more topics of Pythagorean Theorem compared to Singapore’s, implying that more learning opportunities are given to Indonesian students, even when the competence to be achieved stated in both countries’ syllabus are similar.
