The aims of this study is to find out the extent to which students understand the basic concepts of calculus I by analyzing test results after learning. This study belongs to a qualitative descriptive study that seeks to describe the analysis of student errors in solving problems in calculus I. Subjects in this study are students who take courses in calculus I in the Informatics Engineering Study Program, Faculty of Computer Science, Banten Jaya University. This study revealed some significant student errors in solving problems in calculus I. In this study, researchers collected information through diagnostic tests and interviews with students. The analysis shows that the majority of students’ mistakes do not master the basic concepts of derivative functions, trigonometric derivatives, and integral functions. There are some mistakes, including mistakes due to carelessness, mistakes in process skills, errors in understanding questions, and errors in using notation. The results of the analysis, it is necessary for lecturers of calculus I courses to be able to develop strategies in learning so that students can be thorough and correct in completing questions, also can be done by increasing the practice of questions, so students are accustomed to various forms of questions, especially questions related to basic skills in calculus I.
