Abstract: The aim of this research was to look at student’s perspectives in mathematics learning who had been applied mathematical learning assisted by mobile technology based on cognitive styles and academic ability. The type of research is Mixed Method, which was a combination of qualitative and quantitative. The sample in this study was students in the even semester of the academic year 2017/2018 in the calculus II course who received mathematics learning with using mobile technology. The instruments were questionnaires of interest in using
mobile technology and interviews. The data analysis technique carried out was the analysis of qualitative data for data from interviews and quantitative data analysis for data from the questionnaire of interest in learning mathematics after using mobile technology. The results showed that the perspective of interest in mathematics
learning by mobile technology was in the moderate category, meaning that almost all students were interested in mathematics learning by this mobile learning application. The interest in mathematics learning with mobile technology in terms of academic ability was high, medium and low ability, while the interest in mathematics learning with mobile learning applications in terms of cognitive styles learning, that is field dependent and field independent, had a view of interests that almost the same, this is indicated because in general, the average
questionnaire score is in the ”medium” category. This is also supported by the results of interviews in which students were very interested if this application is used in mathematics learning, and they also hoped that it will also be developed in different subjects.(More)
