    The purpose of this study was to determine the role of context in vegetative reproduction in animals in encouraging students to understand the concept of exponential. Exponential material is one of the most important lessons in mathematics. However, various studies suggest that there are some problems or difficulties encountered or even errors experienced by students when studying this material. Errors that occur can be either conceptual or procedural errors. Based on the observations of the author of the textbook for the exponential material, presentation material directly by giving the definition, nature or form of promotion rules. It is surely to be one of the factors that lead to low levels of student mastery of the concept of exponential because students will only memorize concepts / formulas and are less able to use these concepts when they have problems in real life. Therefore, the author wants to design learning materials situation exponentially through vegetative reproduction of the animals. Results of this study suggest that context vegetative propagation can reduce conceptual errors are found earlier. Sehingga it can be concluded that the context of vegetative propagation can exponentially increase the understanding of the concept.
