The said innovation was initiated by the Department of Science and Technology-Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI) with support from the Advanced Science and Technology Institute (DOST-ASTI), Department of Education (DepEd), Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) and with the mathematics content modules developed by the Elementary School and High School Mathematics Groups of NISMED. The project aims to contribute to the improvement of mathematics education especially at the elementary level and of the Philippine educational system in general.
The said courseware consists of ten (10) lessons in Grade 1 mathematics namely: Classifying Objects, Comparing Sets of Objects and Numbers, Ordering Sets of Objects and Numbers, Searching for Number Patterns, Adding Whole Numbers, Subtracting Whole Numbers, Partitioning Regions into Halves, Partitioning Regions into Fourths, Finding the Whole Region or Set, and Measuring Length. These lessons were collaboratively developed within a Philippine context to make it familiar to the pupils.
