<p style="text-align: justify;">Literacy ability is an individual's ability to reason, formulate, solve, and interpret mathematically to solve problems related to daily life. Executive function is a cognitive aspect that has a relation with mathematical literacy. One of some aspects that affects the low mathematical literacy ability is the aspect of executive function. This study aims to investigate the characteristics of mathematical literacy based on the executive function aspects of 15 years old students. A qualitative method with a descriptive approach is employed in this study. The present research applies interview guidelines, questionnaires, and students' mathematical literacy tests as the instruments. Research subjects are junior high school students in grade VIII from two different schools. The result shows that the students' executive function influences mathematical literacy ability. Students' mathematical literacy ability is not fully achieved by fulfilling all the indicators involved. Another aspect found in the research is the low critical thinking ability impacts the achievement of mathematical literacy ability indicators.</p>

Various studies on the development of mathematical literacy tests have not shown any research that focuses on developing mathematical literacy tests using the context of Bugis-Makassar local wisdom with Classical Test Theory (CTT). Thus, this study aimed to produce mathematical literacy tests using the context of Bugis-Makassar local wisdom based on CTT for junior high school students through development research using ADDIE design. The development of the test integrates mathematical literacy and local wisdom elements of Bugis-Makassar. There were 15 multiple-choice items developed and tested on 33 males and 68 females at seventh-grade junior high school students. The trial involved two schools in Makassar City using a convenience sampling technique. The test kit was validated by three mathematicians and produced an Aiken index score in the range of 0.67 to 0.89. The empirical data from the trial results were analyzed using CTT assisted by ITEMAN 4.3 software. The test analysis showed an average category for reliability test scores. As many as 47% of the items were in the medium category, and the rest were in the fair category. Meanwhile, 93% of the items have a good discriminatory ability, and 67% have distractors that were not functioning properly, then the tests items must be revised.

Teaching and learning activities are carried out online during the pandemic situation. This condition makes the teaching and learning process in the classroom requires teaching materials that can support the learning process. However, some teachers still use teaching materials commonly used during face-to-face learning, which is irrelevant for offline learning. Therefore, teachers need alternative interactive teaching materials that can facilitate online learning. This study aims to produce teaching materials in an interactive e-module based on the Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) approach with the content of number pattern that is valid, practical, and have potentially affected the eight-grade students' mathematical literacy skills. The research method used is design research with type of development studies which include two main stages, namely the preliminary design and the formative evaluation. The data collection instruments used were content and media expert validation sheets, student response questionnaires, and pretest and posttest questions to measure mathematical literacy skills. This research produces an RME-based e-module on number pattern material that is valid, practical, and potentially affects mathematical literacy skills. The results showed that the e-module was valid in content and media quality with very good criteria. Next, the e-module has also been practical from assessing student responses with good criteria. Finally, the e-module can potentially improve students' mathematical literacy skills, which is indicated by the increase in students' mathematical literacy skills after learning to use the e-module. In addition, the e-module developed in this study contributes as alternative teaching material for teachers in the online learning system.

Introduction. Mathematics teaching based on the development of complex knowledge generalized constructs (for example, modern achievements in science) becomes an effective direction for the formation of school student’s mathematical literacy with a significant applied and mathematical-informational potential of personal development. The purpose of the study: to develop a technology for student’s mathematical literacy formation during the development of complex mathematical knowledge and in the context of universal educational actions actualization by means of mathematical and computer modeling. Materials and methods. The research materials are based on the historiogenesis and actualization of mastering processes of complex mathematical knowledge by students as an effective mechanism for personal development. A synergetic approach, digitalization tools and visual modeling methods are being implemented to adapt the mastering processes of complex knowledge to school mathematics with the effect of student’s mathematical literacy forming. The choice and justification of methods for personal experience founding create the effect of core actualization of universal educational actions, manifest themselves in the processes of students ' activities individualization. The results of the study. For the first time, a technology for student’s mathematical literacy formation based on the symbiosis of mathematical and computer modeling in mathematics development of complex knowledge has been developed. The founding clusters and research and adaptation technology of hierarchies of complex multi-level knowledge (including modern achievements in science) to school mathematics are constructed. The stages and means of visual modeling and personal experience founding with the effect of student’s mathematical literacy forming in a rich information and educational environment are clarified. Conclusion. Educational practices have shown the high efficiency of this method to school student’s mathematical literacy forming in the process of modern achievements mastering in science. Such didactic solutions and practices are characterized by the ability to fully meet the needs of each school student in self-education and self-actualization when complex knowledge constructs mastering and set the value imperative of personal development, including mathematical literacy.

Literacy has been widely discussing nowadays and it has become a core competence of today's students. Primary students' literacy can be classified into three types, which are, reading literacy, scientific literacy and mathematical literacy. This article presents the definitions of each literacy, discusses the relationship between each literacy and its impact on students' academic achievements and gives different strategies to develop primary students' literacies. Moreover, suggestions are also put forward for the teachers and schools to better cultivate students' literacies.
