The research subject is mathematics teachers and students in SMP Muhammadiyah in Boyolali Regency and also expertise in education. At this stage, the data are collected by observation and documentation. This study uses investigator triangulation. The result shows that mathematics material in junior high school can be developed as PISA-like problems as it includes quantity; space and shape; change and relationship; and uncertainty and data suitable with content in PISA. Moreover, this research produces for PISA-like tasks in each content and the context is related to Indonesia culture, namely technology trends in Indonesian teenagers, Cakra Menggilingan Ferris Wheel in Yogyakarta, Polygon Bicycle as a popular brand of Indonesia that known overseas, and Leather Craft as Indonesian local wisdom.
