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.
