profile of the respondents in terms of age, sex, highest educational attainment, workload,
number of years in teaching and number of seminars and trainings attended, (2) What is
the level of performance of the faculty based from the IPR result, (3) What are the
difficulties encountered in teaching mathematics in high school as perceived by the
teachers in terms of students’ attitude and ability in mathematics and instructional
materials, facilities and equipment, (4) Is there a significant relationship between the
performance of the faculty and the difficulties encountered in teaching mathematics in
high school, and (5) Is there a significant relationship between the personal profile and
