Students' Perceptions towards Mathematical Softwares Based Learning / Persepsi Pelajar terhadap Pembelajaran Berasaskan Perisian Matematik
In tandem with the advancement of technology in the education field, the usage of software in Mathematics teaching and learning is prevalent among teachers to improve students' achievement. The research was carried out to identify students' perception towards Mathematical software based learning features and aspects of the software which help and hinder students' learning process. This quantitative research used survey design. The questionnaire instrument used consisted of 46 items with Five
... items with Five Points Likert Scale of Agreement Level. This research involved 36 Form Four students who were randomly selected from seven classses in a secondary school in Selangor. Data were analysed descriptively. It was found that the students' perception towards learning features based on Mathematical software was at moderate level. Th learning features which recorded the highest mean score are students' autonomy with the score of 3.89 followed by interaction in software based learning with mean score of 3.62, learning structure with mean score of 3.21 and the lowest was 3.20 for delivery system feature. Students' perception towards the aspects in Mathematical software which help the teaching and learning process namely participation in class, students' mindset change, and test achievement shows moderate level with mean score of 3.39 whereas the aspects which hinder the Mathematical software based teaching and learning process such as the factors of time, understanding, learning practice, and computer sharing were also at moderate level with mean score of 3.40. Mathematical software based learning serves as the best and most effective teaching and learning approach as well as utilising information and communication technology (ICT) facility in line with Malaysian Education Blueprint 2013-2025.
