This study aims to develop an Integration Self Learning Module (InSeL) for matriculation students. The development of this module is based on Cognitive Learning Theory, the development of Integration concepts, thinking skills and self-learning. The module is developed using Sidek Model which involves two stages, namely building a draft module and testing a module. This quantitative study used three sets of questionnaires to evaluate the validity, reliability and suitability of the module. Content validity for the InSeL Module was made by seven experts and its validity was determined through content validity index (CVI). The overall content validity index of the InSeL Module was high with the value of 0.99 or 99 percent for both CVI values ​​for items (I-CVI) and CVI for scale (S-CVI). A total of 73 matriculation students were involved in this study to test the reliability and suitability of the developed module. The results showed that the Alpha Cronbach's coefficient for InSeL Module reliability is 0.775. The results of the level of suitability showed that the InSeL Module reached a high level  of universal agreement which is more than 90% with the mean of all three constructs namely content (3.43), format (3.49) and references source (3.38). Overall, this showed that the InSeL Module has met the standards of a module in terms of the content and the quality of a module. In conclusion, the study has successfully produced a mathematical self-learning module for the Integration topic for matriculation students that meet and suitable to the standard of a module. The implication is that the InSeL Module can be used by the students to learn the topic of Integration on their own.
