## Abstract

A computer program is a series of commands to solve complex mathematical problems through mathematical modeling. Computer programs are made with certain programming language based on syntax, semantics, and logic. Thus, knowledge of logic is certainly related to computer field. This study aims to find out the influence of mathematical logic students’ abilities of making computer programs to solve mathematical problems, especially in numerical method course.The sample of this study arethe students ofmathematics education departement of Muhammadiyah University of Purworejo, who took numerical methods course. There are 30 students as sample of this study taken randomly. The instrumentsof data collectionare practical tasks of making programs to solve a system of non linear equation and interview about the process of making computer programs. The research data are processed by linear regression analysis. The significance level used in this study is 5%. Based on the research data, the linear regression equation is obtained y=30,48262+0,612498 x, tcount = 3.332 and ttable = t0.975 = 2.048. Thus, tcount > ttable. Therefore, the null hypothesis is rejected. It means that the mathematical logic students’ ability has influence on the ability of making computer programs.
