The purpose of the study is to describe the management of communicative child- friendly mathematics learning for collaborating skills in problem solving which has three aspects namely 1) interpretation of problems, 2) discussion to solve problems and 3) communicating ideas. The type of study utilised is qualitative ethnography and incorporated data collection techniques of participatory observation, in-depth interviews, and document analysis. Data validation is carried out by triangulation of sources and time. The data analysis technique was done inductively. As for the results of the study, communicative child-friendly mathematics learning management for collaboration skills in problem solving can be categorized into three aspects: 1) Aspects of collaborating skills in problem solving related to aspects of problem interpretation are carried out by measuring students’ abilities to analyse, understand, and give meaning to data or information that exists in problems or questions; 2) Aspects of collaborating skills in solving problems related to discussing aspects are carried out by thinking mathematically to learn to solve problems together; 3) Aspects of collaboration skills in solving problems related to aspects of communicating ideas are carried out by students being able to present the results of discussions both orally and in writing in the form of pictures, diagrams, or real objects into language, symbols, ideas, or mathematical models.
