Abstract

Based on the results of the preliminary research, it was figured out that the learning process of Calculus was not yet run optimally. This research, then, was designed for developing Calculus Learning Model based on the Theory of APOS, and to reveal the validity, the practicality and the effectiveness of the model developed. This was a developmental research which applied Plomp design that consisted of three phases covering 1) preliminary research, 2) prototyping phase and 3) assessment phase. In prototyping phase, an informative evaluation that consisted of experts’ review, individual try-out, small group try-out and big group try-out was done. The validity of the data was seen from the validation activities done by the experts on Calculus Learning Model based on the theory of APOS, the syllabus, the Lesson Plan, the Worksheet and the Maple Introduction. The practicality of the data was measured through filling the fit and proper questionnaire done by the experts, observation on the implementation of the model done by the observer and filling the worksheet done by the lecturers and the students. The effectiveness of the model was seen through observing the students’ activities, observing the lecturer’s ability to manage the Calculus Learning Model based on the theory of APOS, distributing motivation questionnaire and responsive questionnaire to the students and administering a posttest. The data gathered then was analyzed by using descriptive statistics and inferential statistics. The results of data analysis indicated that the development of Calculus learning Model based on the Theory of APOS significantly could increase the students’ learning outcomes. Therefore, Calculus II Learning Model based on the Theory of APOS developed was valid, practical and effective. Based on the finding above, it was concluded that MPKAPOS model was in line to the development of educational paradigm which moved from teacher-centered learning to student-centered learning. The implication of this research is that the theory of APOS should be widely introduced to Mathematics lecturers to improve the quality of learning process. For the upcoming researchers, it was suggested to develop the model to the other similar lectures in order to find out the effect of the theory of APOS on Calculus subject.
