Abstract

This research was based on the current issues of mathematics classes in Indonesia, i.e. the utilization of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the learning processes, and the difficulties faced by Indonesian students in understanding basic concepts of mathematics, namely when it was taught in English. Regarding to the previous condition, this research was aimed at overcoming the students’ difficulties in studying mathematics through ICT-based instruction–web-based applications. This research was a classroom-based action research toward 8th grade students of a private junior high school in West Jakarta, Indonesia. It was conducted in two cycles. Each cycle consisted of four steps, namely planning, action, observation, and reflection. Findings of the study showed that the utilization of ICT-based instruction, in this case, web-based applications and resources could improve the mathematics achievement of the students. Furthermore, the result of the research done also indicated that the use of ICT in teaching mathematics could make the teaching process more effective as well as enhance the students’ capabilities in understanding basic concepts of mathematics in English.
