Keywords:Document Analysis, RME, Studies Carried Out In Turkey
The goal of this research is to analyze the Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) studies conducted in Turkey through document analysis and to reveal what a trend is. In the research, 89 studies, including 18 articles, 71 theses, selected with a purposeful sampling method, published between 2002 and 2020, were analyzed. In the selection of the studies, Google Academic search engine, TÜBİTAK ULAKBİM DergiPark, YÖK National Thesis Center databases were used. All of the studies were examined through type, year, purpose, method, sample, data collection tools, subject areas, results via content analysis. The data are presented in tables using frequency and codes. Most of the studies consist of master theses, examining the effect on success, using experimental method is preferred. When the results are examined it is seen that applications for RME generally increase the success and permanence of the information and have a positive effect on skills such as attitude, motivation, prediction. The teacher candidates were suggested to have activities based on RME, teachers are to be given in-service training.
