Abstract

Some of the worlds physics communities have observed that student learning outcomes in introductory physics courses are weak and ineffective. To overcome this, one of the efforts to complete it is the development of effective teaching materials. Excellent teaching materials will help students in solving problems in learning including deep conceptual understanding. Many misconceptions occur for students who have completed introductory physics courses. Whereas in the introductory physics courses there are many major branches of physics. Conceptual understanding is a part that cannot be missed in the whole of physics learning. Weak understanding of the concept will affect the completion of mathematical physics questions. Sometimes students can solve a physics problem that is mathematical but does not understand the concepts contained in it. One method of solving physical misconceptions in students is to use peer learning methods whose activities are arranged in instructional materials developed based on Algodoo. This method is expected to reduce the misconceptions that occur for students who take Introductory Physics courses during their first year of college.
