Our World of Math, Second Edition is aligned to the 2016 version of the K to 12 curriculum being implemented by the Department of Education. It organizes the key math concepts into five domains: number sense, measurement, algebra, geometry, probability, and statistics in spiral progression. Particularly noteworthy is its use of the inquiry-based approach, as well as its progressive development of higher-order thinking skills.
- Follows logically sequenced stages of learning through a conceptual process of solving routine and non-routine problems
- Motivates learners to seek and learn new math concepts that are directly or indirectly applicable to real-life situations
- Develops higher-order thinking skills through sets of exercises that are arranged in increasing levels of difficulty
- Employs the block model approach to help learners solve situational problems using concrete and practical perspectives
- The accompanying Teacher’s Manuals are organized with the three stages of UbD design in mind, namely, identifying desired outcomes, products, and performances; assessment with rubrics that identify the criteria and performance indicators; and learner-centered and activity-laden instructional plans.
