Using Student Activity Sheets (SAS) in learning is one of the teacher's efforts to provide scaffolding to students. This paper is a limited trial in using student activity sheets based on Mean-Ends Analysis (MEA) learning models in the context of Malay culture.The purpose of this study is to analyze the communication and mathematical abstractions ability students' which using SAS in mathematics learning. The study was conducted at a junior high school in Perbaungan, North Sumatra. Subjects in

The results showed mathematical communication ability were in good category, while the ability of students' mathematical abstraction still needed improvement. Thus the student activity sheet based on the MEA learning model can be used as an alternative to improve students' mathematical communication skills
