To study the level of Mathematical literacy of grade 5 students after learning implementation based on Realistic Mathematics Education Approach in the topic of percentage. The target group of this research were 33 grade 5 students of medium sized schools in Srisamrong District, Sukhothai. This study conducted in the second semester of the academic year 2019. The research instruments were 3 lesson plans, worksheets and mathematical literacy test. Data were analyzed by analytic scoring in three aspects of mathematical literacy which are: 1) formulating situations mathematically, 2) employing mathematical concepts, facts, procedures, and reasoning and applying, 3) interpreting and evaluating mathematical results.

The results showed that 75.76 percent of students were in good level of mathematical literacy, that mean, 93.93 percent of students could identify mathematical issues correctly, complete and present the situation using variables, symbols, diagrams to be easily formed partially correct, 72.72 percent of students can choose a method and solve the problem correctly, but they showed the sequence of problem-solving steps and summarizing partly correct. Moreover, 48.48 percent of students can explain, interpret mathematical results related to the context of the problem and can explain the reasonableness of the results partly correct and they can explain the reasoning of the solution.
