K TO 12 MATHEMATICS

CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK

Mathematics is one subject that pervades life at any age, in any circumstance. Thus, its value goes beyond the classroom and
the school. Mathematics as a school subject, therefore, must be learned comprehensively and with much depth.

The twin goals of mathematics in the basic education levels, K-10 are Critical Thinking and Problem Solving. We adopt the definition of
critical thinking by Scriven and Paul (1987):

Critical thinking is the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or
evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief
and action.

On the other hand, we define Problem Solving in mathematics using Polya’s (1945 & 1962) definition:

Mathematical problem solving is finding a way around a difficulty, around an obstacle, and finding a solution to a problem that is unknown.

These two goals are to be achieved with an organized and rigorous curriculum content, a well-defined set of high-level skills and
processes, desirable values and attitudes, and appropriate tools, recognizing as well the different contexts of Filipino learners.

There are five content areas in the curriculum, as adopted from the framework prepared by MATHTED & SEI (2010): Numbers and
Number Sense, Measurement, Geometry, Patterns and Algebra, and Probability and Statistics.

The specific skills and processes to be developed are: knowing and understanding; estimating, computing and solving; visualizing and
modeling; representing and communicating; conjecturing, reasoning, proving and decision-making, and: applying and connecting.

The following values and attitudes are to be honed as well: accuracy, creativity, objectivity, perseverance, and productivity.

We recognize that the use of appropriate tools is needed in teaching mathematics. These include: manipulative objects,
measuring devices, calculators and computers, Smartphones and tablet PCs, and the Internet.

K TO 12 MATHEMATICS

We define context as a locale, situation or set of conditions of Filipino learners that may influence their study and use of mathematics to
develop critical thinking and problem solving skills. Contexts refer to beliefs, environment, language and culture that include traditions and
practices, and learner’s prior knowledge and experiences.

The framework is supported by the following underlying learning principles and theories: Experiential and Situated Learning,
Reflective Learning, Constructivism, Cooperative Learning and Discovery and Inquiry-based Learning. The mathematics curriculum is
grounded in these theories.

Experiential learning as advocated by David Kolb is learning that occurs by making sense of direct everyday experiences. Experiential
learning theory defines learning as "the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience. Knowledge results from
the combination of grasping and transforming experience" (Kolb, 1984, p. 41). Situated learning, theorized by Lave and Wenger, is learning in
the same context on which concepts and theories are applied.

Reflective learning refers to learning that is facilitated by reflective thinking. It is not enough that learners encounter real-life situations.
Deeper learning occurs when learners are able to think about their experiences and process these allowing them the opportunity to make
sense and meaning of their experiences.

Constructivism is the theory that argues that knowledge is constructed when the learner is able to draw ideas from his own experiences
and connects them to new ideas that are encountered.

Cooperative Learning puts premium on active learning achieved by working with fellow learners as they all engage in a shared task.
The mathematics curriculum allows for students to learn by asking relevant questions and discovering new ideas. Discovery and Inquiry-
based learning (Bruner, 1961) support the idea that students learn when they make use of personal experiences to discover facts, relationships
and concepts.

BRIEF COURSE DESCRIPTION

Mathematics from K-10 is a skills subject. By itself, it is all about quantities, shapes and figures, functions, logic and reasoning.
Mathematics is also a tool of science and a language complete with its own notations and symbols and “grammar” rules, with which concepts
and ideas are effectively expressed.

The contents of mathematics include Numbers and Number Sense, Measurement, Geometry, Patterns & Algebra and Statistics and
Probability. Numbers and Number Sense as a strand includes concepts of numbers, properties, operations, estimation and their applications.

Measurement as a strand includes the use of numbers and measures to describe, understand and compare mathematical and concrete
objects. It focuses on attributes such as length, mass and weight, capacity, time, money and temperature among others, as well as applications
involving perimeter, area, surface area, volume and angle measure.

Geometry as a strand includes properties of two- and three-dimensional figures and their relationships, spatial visualization, reasoning
and geometric modeling and proofs.

Patterns and Algebra as a strand studies patterns, relationships and changes among shapes and quantities and includes the use of
algebraic notations and symbols, equations and most importantly, functions, to represent and analyze relationships.

Statistics and Probability as a strand is all about developing skills in collecting and organizing data using charts, tables and graphs,
understanding, analyzing and interpreting data, dealing with uncertainty and making predictions and outcomes.

The K to 10 Mathematics Curriculum provides a solid foundation for Mathematics at Grades 11 to 12. More importantly, it p rovides
necessary concepts and life skills needed by Filipino learners as they proceed to the next stage in their life as learners and as citizens of
our beloved country, the Philippines.
