Mathematics Learning, Mathematical Concept, Absolute Value, Hawgent Dynamic Software


Understanding the concept is one aspect that is needed and must be owned by students in learning mathematics. This research aims to make learning media assisted by hawgent dynamic mathematics software on understanding the absolute value in grade 10 Senior high school to help teachers explain the concepts and assist students in finding and understanding the basic concepts of absolute value topic. The development model used in this research is ADDIE development model. ADDIE is an abridgment of Analyze, Design, Develop and Evaluation. Researchers the learning media Hawgent can help students to understand and find the concept of absolute value. Based on several aspects, clearly and attractively with an average of 78.9% in the excellent category. It is concluded that the development of learning media Hawgent dynamic mathematics software can be used on the subject of understanding the concept of absolute value and with the help of this software it can help teachers explain the concept of absolute value and the students are also very interested in this ICT-based learning media. This conclusion is related to the validation results of media experts and material experts, where the validation results from media experts on the use of learning media are in good categories.
