Most of the time, students need to do selfstudy in order to understand the physics material completely. Knowledge about physical quantities and measurement is a pre-requisite for experiment-based physics class. Thus, students need to master it well. In this project, we develop supporting multimedia in the form of android app to assist students in doing selfstudy on topics regarding the physical quantities and measurement. Android app platform is chosen because it can provide interactive text, illustration and video. It is also popular among students, and it can be used easily by students everywhere and every time. The android app contains explanations, discussions, video demonstrations, exercises and quizzes. Field testing has been conducted to evaluate the effectivity of the android app to improve the students’ conceptual understanding. According to field testing, the use of the android app in self-study is potential to enhance students’ conceptual understanding of physical quantities and measurement principles.


Keywords –android app, learning media, self-study, high school physics, physical quantities, measurement.
