Our World of Math K to 10 is an all-new series aligned to the K to 12 curriculum being implemented by the Department of Education.
It organizes in a spiral progression the key math concepts into five domains: number sense, measurement, algebra, geometry, probability, and statistics. Particularly noteworthy is its use of the inquiry approach, as well as its progressive development of higher-order thinking skills.
Supports Understanding by Design (UbD) framework and cooperative learning
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.
Each manual lists authentic tasks that are specified for learners, complete with strategies for developing higher-order skills.
