Mathematics education, Interactive multimedia, Virtual learning


Mathematics is the subject that has the least frequency of using technology in the school. It is preferred chalk and talk method rather than the use of technology or presentation. Due to pandemic Covid19, the suitable method for the teaching and learning process is virtual learning. The same goes for teachers who need to change the method and think about how to implement it through online learning. Interactive multimedia is one of the best media that can attract students to learn in distance education, especially for Mathematics subjects that are most suitable to be conducted on the traditional method. It is more challenging as this new era has happened suddenly and it creates emergency online learning where most teachers do not experts in enhancing the interactivity learning at first. The purpose of this study is (1) to identify students’ perception of interactive multimedia in learning Mathematics during online distance learning and (2) to understand students’ motivation towards interactive multimedia in learning Mathematics during online distance learning. The sample selected for the questionnaire survey is 100 Mathematics students. Based on the finding, showed there are positive perceptions and high motivation toward interactive multimedia in learning Mathematics during online distance learning.
