USING A SEARCHING GAME APPLICATION TO LEARN ALGEBRA: APPLYING INDUCTIVE LEARNING STRATEGY

One way to attract students in learning mathematics is by using interactive learning materials. The Inductive learning strategy is one of many learning strategies that can be used by educators to teach mathematics. In this study, a searching game application was developed by applying the Inductive learning strategy to support the learning of the topic on algebraic fractions. This strategy allows students to critically examine a given set of data, organize the terms into groups and make predictions about the topic. Eighty semester one college students from the engineering programs in a Malaysian polytechnic were involved in the study. The effectiveness of the application in helping the students to understand the topic is measured by giving a set of pretest and posttest questions. Using t-test, the result shows that the learning gain score for the experimental group (using the inductive learning strategy) were higher than the control group. Thus, it can be concluded that, the searching game can be used to assist in understanding the topic of algebraic fraction.
