Flipped Learning, Handout, Complex Number


Flipped Learning is one of the alternatives of teaching and learning approach in mathematics classroom. The objective of this study is exploring students’ conceptual understanding about complex number using flipped learning with handout. The subject of the study are the students in 5th semester students of mathematics education department in 2019/2020. The study used qualitative approach to describe the implementation of flipped learning.

There are 31,6% of 19 respondents give score very satisfied. This result then observed by using the test with all the students understand with the definition of complex numbers. Besides they can adapt their learning activity using flipped learning with complex analysis handout. As legibility aspect of the handout, there are 52,6% of the respondents gives score satisfied and 26,3% of the respondents are very satisfied. The score indicates that the flipped learning with handout helps students to understand about the complex number concepts.
