NISMED has a new website. Check it out at http://www.nismed.upd.edu.ph. You will find information about NISMED there: its mandate, functions, staff, publications, services, facilities, activities and programs. The sliding panels show the functions of NISMED—to conduct research, develop curriculum materials, train teachers, and perform extension activities along these areas.
Linked to this main site are other sites for specific public services:
- AgiMατ stands for Agham, Impormasyon, at Matematika. It contains Science and Mathematics Resources for Teaching (http://curriculum.nismed.upd.edu.ph/). You will find worksheets, lessons, presentations, videos and podcasts for classroom use and for teacher development in this site.
