The Center for Human Research and Development Foundation, Inc. will be conducting a one-day national seminar-workshop on "Making High School Mathematics Real and Relevant" at the Institute of Social Order (ISO), Ateneo de Manila University, Loyola Heights, Quezon City come October 24, 2009.
The seminar would run for the whole day (from 7:00 AM to 4:30 PM) with Mr. Ricardo M. Crisostomo, a renowned author of different books and articles in Science and Mathematics and has been in the academe for 25 years, as resource speaker. As I glanced at the seminar's program, the topics include the following:
1. Mathematics: Reality and Relevance
2. How Students Learn Mathematics
3. The Joy and Art of Teaching Mathematics
4. Developing Real Relevant Teaching Frameworks
For this, I am planning to rebook my return ticket to Bangkok from October 23 to October 24 so I could join this seminar which is geared towards equipping high school Mathematics teachers with progressive knowledge on the teaching and learning of Mathematics. Aside from the reunion with my loved ones, my attendance to this seminar would surely add meaning to my three-week vacation in the Philippines. At least, I will be back with my teaching track in Bangkok with renewed interest and enthusiasm in teaching Mathematics to my Second Year and Fifth Year high school students.
