UP NISMED’s New Sites About Mathematics and Science Teaching

We at the University of the Philippines National Institute for Science and Mathematics Education Development (UP NISMED) are currently developing several websites on mathematics and science teaching. AgIMat is one of our newest sites,  a public service of UP NISMED’s staff for K-12 science and mathematics teaching. AgIMat stands for Agham (Science) Impormasyon (Information), at Matematika (Mathematics) is a resource dedicated to Filipino teachers.

Some of the materials posted on the site have been used in classes or in professional development for teachers. The materials are written in English,  but some are written in Filipino. We are also planning to have materials in other native languages in the future. Continue reading

It is an Honor to be a GeoGebra Ambassador

GeoGebra has recently awarded the title of GeoGebra Ambassador to individuals who have helped popularized the software. I am honored to be one of the chosen ambassadors.

I have been blogging about GeoGebra for quite a long time. I have created more than 50 tutorials in beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. I have created another blog titled GeoGebra Applet Central where I have collected applets since I started using the software.

Here in the Philippines, I am currently a teacher trainer in UP NISMED. UP NISMED is the host Institute of the GeoGebra Institute of Metro Manila, our local GeoGebra Institute. Since 2005, we have been integrating GeoGebra in teacher trainings and curriculum materials development.

Sanjay Gulati (India), and Steve Phelps (USA) of the GeoGebra Institute of Ohio were the other two GeoGebra Ambassadors. I’m sure more people will be awarded.

Thank you GeoGebra!

GeoGebra Institute of Metro Manila goes live

The GIMM Logo

GeoGebra Institute of Metro Manila (GIMM) is one of the International GeoGebra Institutes (IGI), a non-profit organization behind the free mathematics software GeoGebra. It is the first GeoGebra Institute in the Philippines.

The aim of GIMM is for teacher and researchers to work together to promote the learning and teaching of mathematics by supporting and coordinating the followingactivities:

  • conduct training on GeoGebra,
  • develop GeoGebra teaching materials,
  • offer workshops for future GeoGebra trainers,
  • implement new features of GeoGebra,
  • develop an online-support system for teachers,
  • design and do research projects, and
  • make presentations at national and international conferences.

The University of the Philippines National Institute for Science and Mathematics Education Development (UP NISMED) is the host of the GIMM.
