Integrating literacy instruction into content areas, such as mathematics, has been a standing focus in the field of education. The main purpose of this case study is to develop a mathematical literacy-oriented assessment named “A LOHAS Trip”, and investigate 60 sixth graders’ problem solving of this assessment. “A LOHAS Trip” is based on a two-day virtual trip to Yi-Lan city of the Yao family. There are four problems including accommodation, transportation, foods and shopping in this mathematical literacy-oriented assessment. From analyses of the data, it was noticed that 1) problem of accommodation is easy for the sixth graders, students’ scoring rate is 93%, 2) problem of shopping is most difficult for the sixth graders, students’ scoring rate is 29%, 3) students’ scoring rate of problem of transportation and problem of foods are both less than 50%, but are more than the scoring rate of shopping problem. There was evidence indicating that the situation and context of problem are more complicated, the problem is more difficult for students. There has room for improvement of students to solve problems of the mathematical literacy-oriented assessment.
