Inverse problem on X-ray tomography: Building a learning model based on inverse

Supurwoko Supurwoko, Dyah Fitriana Masithoh, Dwi Teguh Rahardjo, Yohanes Radiyono


The images of X-ray tomography can be obtained by back projections method. The process to obtain cross-sectional image of the object involved high order thinking process (HOT). This is consistent with the objectives of the curriculum that developed by Indonesian government. The new curriculum that Indonesian government developed needed the real support in order to reach HOT process. Inverse based learning model is a good choice for that. This research is a qualitative research. We analyzed various journals and reference books about inverse problem, X-ray tomography and higher order thinking. We also considered the indonesian government policy of learning and the characteristics of the material. The result of the research showed that the inverse model could be applied in high school learning, particularly in physics.
