Armis ., Suhermi ., Syofni .


This study aims to develop the Higher Order Linear Differential Equations materials. These developed materials consist of (1) General theory of nth Order Linear Differential Equations, (2) Homogeneous Differential Equations with constant coefficients, (3) Homogeneous Differential Equations with functions coefficients, (4) Nonhomogeneous Differential Equations (The Method of Undetermined Coefficients, The Method of Variation of Parameters). This research is the development of model 4-D. The four stages of the research model development include define, design, develop, and disseminate. The define stage is to establish and define the terms of learning. The design stage is to prepare a prototype of Higher Order Linear Differential Equations Materials. The develop phase is to produce the Higher Order Linear Differential Equations materials that have been revised based on input from experts. The disseminate phase is the stage of materials usage on a broader scale. On this study, it has been implemented until stage 3. The stage 4 will be implemented on the next study. The materials are validated by three experts. The materials have been revised in accordance to suggestions of validator and the materials is ready to be tested to students of Department of Mathematics Education, University of Riau.
