Abstract

The purposes of this research are (1) to develop geometrical learning activities with real-life situations for grade eight students with the aim of achieving a 60/60 criteria; (2) to study the outcomes of the implementation of geometrical learning activities with real-life situations for grade eight students by examining their abilities to associate geometry concepts to real-life situations and their appreciation of geometry concepts in real-life situations. The eighth grade students were selected from Pramochwittaya
ramintra School with a specific criteria and four of them were chosen for in-depth analyses. The findings showed that (1) the implementation of the geometrical learning activities with real-life situations helped the grade eight students to surpass the 60/60 criteria with the average score of 69.07/69.35; (2) more than sixty percent of the students demonstrated the ability to associate geometry concepts with real-life situations and at least sixty percent of the full score, with a statistically significant level of .05
