Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether students of civil engineering realized the importance of calculus in their courses. The first stage is determining the correlation among variables and second stage is factor extraction. In factor extraction, eigenvalue from total variance explained was used on identified and determine the number factor should be used in the analysis. The number of factor extract was ensure by using the graph from the output in the analysis, namely as scree plot graph. From the factor extraction, there were three factors identified. Finished on the factor extract, the analysis proceeds to the final stage that is factor rotation. The purpose of factor rotation is to identify the belonging of variables in which factor. The method used in the factor rotation is Varimax with Kaiser Approximation. There are five topics in Calculus under factor 1, five topics of calculus in factor 2 and there are only three topics of calculus in factor 3. All the factors were namely appropriately by find out the related between calculus and one of civil subject. There was a subject which applied the several topics of calculus. From the subject, the factors were given name as Torsion Factor, Moment Factor and Rigid Factor.
