Abstract

This study aims to determine the level of practicality and effectiveness of digital mathematics teaching materials to improve blended learning problem-solving abilities of polytechnic students. Teaching materials are formatted in the form of textbooks and student activity sheets (SAS). Research using the 4D model development method includes: Define, Design, Develop, and Disseminate, carried out at the Bali State Polytechnic (BSP). Practicality is seen from the ease of use, the attractiveness of presentation, and benefits. Effectiveness is seen from the achievement of problem-solving abilities in students. Data were collected through practicality questionnaires, and math problem-solving ability tests. Data were analyzed descriptively, t-test, paired t-test, and N-Gain Score test. The results show that the practicality of digital mathematics textbooks and SAS in terms of lecturers reaches 82.1% and 81.6% both are categorized as practical by students reached 81.4% in the practical category and 92.8% in the very practical category. The digital mathematics textbooks and SAS are quite effective in improving the ability to solve mathematical problems in blended learning. The implication is that digital mathematics textbooks and SAS can be used as teaching materials to accompany mathematics learning using blended learning.
