Abstract—The goal of this study is to develop a
GeoGebra-assisted worksheet to enhance students'
understanding of calculus. Many studies report that students
have difficulty understanding calculus. GeoGebra provides an
alternative method to overcome the difficulties associated with
calculus. The Plomp development model consists of three phases:
specifically, preliminary analysis, prototype development and
an assessment was used in this study. The subjects of this study
were 37 students. The results of this study are valid in terms of
content, presentation, linguistics and graphics and practical in
terms of implementation, time, ease of use and effective in terms
of its potential impact on students' mathematical understanding.
The GeoGebra-assisted worksheet can help students rediscover
the given concept, while the use of visualization of the calculus
concept can significantly enhance students’ mathematical
understanding. Likewise, GeoGebra-assisted worksheets can be
used to enhance students’ understanding of calculus. Teachers
are suggested using GeoGebra in order to build students’
understanding on calculus subject.
Index Terms—Calculus, GeoGebra, Plomp model, worksheet.
