This study was conducted using a quantitative approach through survey method. The instrument used in this study is a set of questionnaires the level of students’ satisfaction and perceived learning in online learning.

The data collected in this study were analyzed using SPSS software through descriptive analysis (mean and standard deviation) and Pearson correlation. The findings of this study showed that the mean score for both levels of students’ learning satisfaction and students’ perceived learning in mathematics courses online learning was at a moderate level. The results of the study also showed that there was a positive and significant relationship between the level of students’ learning satisfaction with the level of students’ perceived learning. In conclusion, there was a direct positive relationship between the level of students’ learning satisfaction with the level of students’ perceived learning of Mathematics Education undergraduate students in UPSI in mathematics courses online learning. As an implication, this study has been able to help in giving the opinion to educators, universities, and the other party involved to ensure that online learning can be implemented well and effectively during the pandemic Covid-19.
