This makes gedhek known only as objects that are dividing the house (wall). Even though the process of making up to installing gedhek contains various learning concepts, especially mathematics. These mathematical concepts need to be identified through a qualitative research framework. Research data obtained by the method of participatory observation, in-depth interviews, and cultural documentation, then analyzed according to the steps of the ethnographic approach. The results showed that gedhek included mathematical activities, such as: counting, measuring, designing, locating, and explaining.
