Abstract

One of the most important things you can do to improve your mathematical application is to learn how to find numerical solutions. However, it was discovered that classrooms teaching methods that use numerical solutions are largely unable to provide students with the successful experience they should have in finding numerical solutions. Since conceptual and procedural knowledge, as well as the ability to perform computational mathematics, must be understood, simultaneously mastering all three can be difficult for most students. This study investigates combining GPT and Colab as learning tools for students to explore numerical solutions in the context of difference equations. The developed learning process works in tandem with the power of GPT and Colab to provide students with a successful experience in finding numerical solutions to difference equations. The survey results show that students have a high level of self-efficacy in finding numerical solutions to difference equations. This reflects today’s power of innovation, which can be applied in classroom to improve student skills so that they can use the tools to solve problems.
