### LEARNING VECTOR ANALYSIS WITH COMPUTER ALGEBRAIC SYSTEM (CAS) USING SCILAB AT THE MUHAMMADIYAH UNIVERSITY OF JEMBER

#### Abstract

The ability to solve problems is the heart of mathematics, visualization is the core of mathematical

problem solving. Visualization is the ability to see and understand the situation of the problem.

Basically, students in need of interesting and innovative learning, therefore this research tries to

makes learning interesting and innovative with the linking of learning with learning model analysis

Vector Computer Algebraic System (CAS) using Scilab programming. Learning aims to maximize

learning student. This course is given to Mathematics Education at the University of Muhammadiyah

Jember sixth semester. This research is a development research, because in this study developed a

learning tool Vector Analysis learning model Co mputer Algebraic System (CAS) using scilab. The

results of us researches show that VIA semester students of the University of Muhammadiyah

Jember able to receive learning vector analysis to go through three stages, namely CAS surprises,

clarifications, and investigation by a computerized scilab program. While the results of the

validation of SAP including both categories, validation modules included both categories, results of

the validation test is good category, which means that learning is said to be effective, it shows that

learning device Analysis Vectors learning model CAS using the program scilab can be categorized

as a good device.

Keywords: CAS (Computer Algebraic System), Scilab, Vector Analysis
