Understanding quadrilateral and triangle material is still a problem for students. These problems occur because teachers did not design learning trajectories before they tough in the classroom, or they still did not apply innovative approaches and media in the learning process. Designing and developing a learning trajectory for the quadrilateral and triangle material as an activities series based on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) using rubber-powered car projects through lesson study is the aim of this study. This design is referred to as a hypothetical learning trajectory in teaching quadrilateral and triangle material. This study used design research as a research method, which consists of three stages: preliminary design, design experiment, and retrospective analysis. The subject of this research was seventh-grade students at a state junior high school in Semarang City. Data were collected from various sources: pre- and post-test, student worksheets, interviews, documentation of photos, and video recording of the learning process. Data analyses through qualitative research about validity and reliability refer to the quality of the observation. This study result described the learning trajectory consisting of three activities, namely creating a rubber-powered car project, identifying the property and relation among quadrilaterals, and solving a contextual problem in the area and perimeter of quadrilaterals. This research indicated that a series of activities STEM-based designed through lesson study can make students understand material actively, joyfully, and meaningfully.
