This study aim is to learn how to apply mathematical values to mathematics learning. This study uses descriptive qualitative methods and objects that discuss one of the mathematics teachers who teach at one of the junior high schools in Bandung. In general, the problem of education in Indonesia is mathematical values that are difficult to understand, mathematics learning and character education are taught separately in the world of education. As character education was obtained from religious education and PKN (Citizenship Education), therefore, the development of student character was the responsibility of religious teachers and PKN teachers. This is contrary to the nature of mathematics. The results showed that, of the ten values highlighted in this study, only some were applied by the teacher. As rationalism that is not applied is the accent on mathematical proof, indicator of openness the teacher does not civilize the giving of opinions on student answers, not allowed to develop creative ideas such as making posters and uploading on social media. And the persisting indicator, learning does not emphasize problem-solving in a different way. The teacher focuses on the student's weaknesses and the teacher’s mastery of the core of values of mathematics has not been deep.
