Abstract

This paper presents the implementation of cooperative learning at Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment (FKAB), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM); which aims at introducing an innovative teaching and learning methodology. It is emphasized the use of cooperative learning (CL) as an alternative technique in order to enhance learning in Engineering Mathematics courses. In implementing CL in the teaching and learning of Engineering Mathematics courses, it is important to have a better understanding on students' reflection on CL; which is a key component in the development of learning and teaching process and also students' generics skills. This paper emphasized on the individual students' respond toward CL activities. Data from two groups of students from two difference courses; Engineering Mathematics I: Vector Calculus (year one students) and Engineering Mathematics III: Differential Equation (year two students); were analyzed and compared. Data shows that students' respond positively toward CL, in which this learning method do helped them to understand better in their learning process and enhance their generic skills.
