GUI of Matlab, Teaching, Learning, Calculus.



This research aims to develop the project application in teaching and learning Calculus using Grapichal User Interface (GUI) of Matlab. The scope of the development result includes (1) PreCalculus, (2) Function Limit, (3) Derivative and its application, and (4) Integral and its application. Every aspect of development is presented according to the standards of material competence, learning achievement indicators, and solutions or settlement steps on each issue presented. This project application can be used by lecturers and students in universities to improve motivation, mastery of material and student learning outcomes in the Calculus course. Development of this project application is done through 4 stages called 4-D namely: Define, Design, Development, and Dissemination. Based on the data analysis, the results obtained at the validation stage of expert validity level average of 3.575, which means "quite valid". Then on a limited trial the average student gave a response of 92.00% which means "very good". While in the first field trial the average student gave a response of 89.30% which means "very good", and in the second field trial the average student gave a responded of 90.15% which means "very good". Besides that, we also solve computational calculus problems in Edwin J. Purcell Dale Varberg's Book of Volume 1 of Edition 5 of 48 questions that are divided into 64 cases.
