The purpose of this study was to develop Android-based teaching materials, which have qualities (valid, practical and effective) that can help to improve the quality of student learning outcomes and to motivate students to learn. The process of developing this material used the Plomp development model, which consists of a preliminary investigation phase, a design phase, a realisation/construction phase, a test, evaluation and revision phase and an implementation phase. To assess the quality of the learning device, the validity of the validator of experts was, then, tested in order to ensure that the teaching material is valid, practical and effective. © WIETE 2017.

This study was a descriptive study using cross sectional design. The aims of this research were to examine the relationship between learning styles and learning outcomes by gender. The population in this study were all students in 1st year of SMAN 1 Galesong Selatan, Indonesia, in the 2014/2015 academic year. The instruments used in this research was the test of modalities learning styles (TMLS), to determine whether the students' learning styles are visual, auditory and kinaesthetic (VAK), and documentation. The relationship between learning styles and learning outcomes were analysed with the chi-square test and two-way ANOVA. The results of this study showed that 1) the learning styles of visual and auditory learning styles is dominated by women; and 2) there is no relationship between the variables of learning styles, genders and interaction of learning styles with genders to learning achievement. © 2017 WIETE.

In this paper, we study a system of differential equations that models the population dynamics of Susceptible, Infected, and Removed (SIR) vector transmission of dengue fever. The model studied re-breeding value based on the number of reported cases of dengue fever in South Sulawesi, Indonesia and Selangor, Malaysia. Using the SIR model and based on the rate of infection of humans, the spread of the dengue virus in both countries reached maximum levels in only a very short time. Theoretical and empirical calculations using the model were found to be suitable, and application of the SIR model showed similarities between the countries. However, the SIR model simulation indicated that dengue fever has not become endemic in either country.

This research examined the influence of modernized technology on the Takalar fishing community of South Sulawesi in Indonesia. The researcher focused on the socio-economic changes resulting from the use of improved technology in the area. A qualitative approach was employed to establish the changes that have occurred due to the use of technology. Both primary and secondary data were used. Data analysis was carried out using a qualitative-descriptive method. The findings revealed a tremendous improvement in the socio-economic status after the fishing communities adopted modernized technology, with such changes being evident among the capital owners (punggawa) and the employees (sawi). In was further established that the economic changes include increased family incomes, improved housing conditions, ownership of fully furnished homes, and accessibility to easy means of transport means. While, social changes include the changes in labor relations, from mutual cooperation to a wage based system, change in social mobility: symbolized by ownership of houses and transport facility, ownership of fishing boats and equipment, and the shift from employee status to ownership status, changes in family structures from nuclear family to extended family system, and also a significant increase in the education levels of most families in the region. © The authors.

This study aims to: examine the aspect of social capital in sports; examine the contribution of sport in strengthening social capital; examine the use of sport as a place for individual development and also to examine the process of internalization and socialization of social capital on the individual players. It is a descriptive study. The qualitative method is used since the paper describes the social interaction patterns in football. In collecting the data, the researcher has acted as the major research tool. The data collected include: (1) symptoms of social interaction in sports which consist of social contact, communication, and forms of social interaction, (2) the indication of social capital in football, and (3) implications of football to the individual development of the players. The data consists of both the primary and secondary data. Regarding the techniques used in collecting the data, this study uses the review of documents, interviews, and observations. The data obtained, has been analyzed qualitatively. The results show that sport contributes to the strengthening of social capital. It strengthens cooperation and working together, improves social networks, personal qualities as individuals and society. The functions of the football promote features of social capital. © The authors.

This paper studies the transmission process of Tuberculosis (TB) via mycobacterium virus. Tuberculosis epidemical ways attacks when the weather changes from dry to rainy season. In this study, mathematical modeling of tuberculosis was constructed by using Susceptible-Infected-Recovered (SIR) model. Derived from a system of nonlinear differential equations, a mathematical modeling of the transmission process to the spread of tuberculosis involving vertical transmission process was formed. With some assumptions, the models generated by four-dimensional nonlinear dynamical system are reduced to three dimensions. In fact, when this model is plugin (or compared) to the theoretical model, it was more realistic and suitable for local situation. The results of simulation for SIR model successfully described and predicted the number of TB cases. © 2015 American Scientific Publishers, All rights Reserved.

The aim of this study was to determine the effect of environmental knowledge, conservation and motivation to maintain the environment, as well as to moderate the behaviour of the public in providing family latrines and drainage. Research areas were selected by purposive sampling: 150 respondents were selected by systematic random sampling. The data were analysed using multiple regression. The results showed that knowledge of the environment and conservation, and the motivation to preserve the environment provide a positive influence on the behaviour in the provision of toilet facilities and maintaining appropriate drainage around Lake Tempe in South Sulawesi, Indonesia. © 2015 WIETE.

This study aims to determine: (a) the behavior of the environmental maintenance, environmental knowledge, attitudes towards the environment, and motivation of community in maintain Walenae Watershed of South Sulawesi Province; (b) the effect of environmental knowledge, attitudes towards the environment, and motivation to maintain an environment both individually and simultaneously toward the public behavior to maintain the neighborhoods of the Walenae watershed. The independent variables are: (a) knowledge of the environment (X1), the attitude towards the environment (X2), and the motivation to maintain an environment (X3). The dependent variable is the behavior of the environmental maintenance (Y). The study location is in the Walenae watershed namely Soppeng, Wajo, and Bone District. The research areas selected by purposive sampling consist of one village of each district near the Walenae watershed. A total of 200 households as respondents which were selected by systematic random sampling of the three sample areas. Data were analized by descriptive and inferential statistical. Inferential analysis are a simple and multiple regression. The results showed that all of variables are in moderate category. Environmental knowledge (XI), the attitude towards the environment (X2), and the motivation to maintain an environment (X3) give the positive effect and significant contribution either individually or simultaneously on the people's behavior to maintain the environment (Y) in the Walenae watershed of South Sulawesi Province.
