Abstract




The metaliteracy ability is a very important in today's life, especially to live in the disruptive technology era. Metaliteracy is an ability that goes beyond metacognition and technological literacy. However, the students' metalliteracy ability is still relatively low. One of the causes of the low ability is due to the learning model that has been applied so far has not been able to bring out this ability. Therefore, in this study, an RBL learning model that is integrated with the STEM approach will be applied in solving the r-Dynamic coloring problem. By r-dynamic coloring, we mean a proper k-coloring c of G if for every vertex v ∈V (G) satisfies |c(N(v))| ≥ min{r,d(v)}. The minimum k such that G has an r-dynamic coloring with k colors is called an r-dynamic chromatic number, denoted by r(G). By using the r-dynamic coloring technique, we will improve students' metaliteracy in solving the tessellation decoration problem. Therefore, in this research, the syntax of learning activities of the Research-Based Learning and STEM approach will be developed including the assesment indicator of the metaliteracy ability.
