Abstract

This study's goal was to: 1) validity of the comic 2) practicality of comic; 3) effectiveness of comic 4) how to improve students' representation ability and understanding of concepts with comic. The model used is the ADDIE development. With an average score of 96.51%, the results demonstrated how valid the comics that were created. Comics were also very practical with an teacher’s questionnaire score of 4.866 with a percentage of 97.30%, as well as a questionnaire score for filling out the practicality questionnaire sheet of 4.777 with a percentage of 95%. 3) The developed comics are effective with pretest of 59.306 and postest of 93.61 for representation ability, as well as pretest of 62.917 and postest of 94.861 for concept understanding ability; 4) With an n-gain score of 0.84 for representation ability and an n-gain score of 0.86 for concept understanding with a high improvement category
