Development of teaching materials in numerical methods

Keywords: teaching material, instructional development model, numerical methods


This research is aimed to develop teaching material in numerical methods in the faculty of teaching and education, Batanghari University (Jambi, Indonesia). The Research and Development (R&D) approach was used in the study. The development model used in the research is the instructional development model. After being developed, validation is done by design experts, material experts, and media experts. Then one to one learning, learning in small groups, and field trial trials were conducted. The results of the study based on validation by experts were categorized as feasible with a feasibility percentage for design validation of 90%, media validation of 87.7% and material expertise of 90.1%. On the basis of validation results and tests it is concluded that the teaching materials for learning mathematics are efficient to use.
