Two years ago, our institute, the University of the Philippines National Institute for Science and Mathematics Education Development (UP NISMED) published Lesson Study Book 1 which details our involvement in Lesson Study in the Philippines. Last year, when I was in Japan, we also published the sequel of this book titled “Lesson Study Book 2: Learning More Together, Growing in Practice.” The chapters in this book document the actual study experiences of teachers and students that highlight teaching and learning of science and mathematics through inquiry based problem-solving approaches from elementary and high school levels. It also discusses some research results.
Below are the titles of the chapters in this book. » Read more

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. » Read more
