The 1st Quarter Correct Responses shows that the least-learned skill is solving multi-step routine and non-routine problems involving division and any of the other operations of whole numbers.

After talking with my pupils about the results, I have discovered that they found the said skill hard because they have not mastered their skills in the 4 basic operations yet, specifically their skills in multiplication and division.

So then, I decided to provide them with the printed multiplication table and gave them a drill on multiplication and division everyday before I formally start with the day’s lesson.

I would say that it helps them improve their skill on multiplication and division specially to those who took effort to memorize the multiplication facts from 2 to 9. But the problem for some pupils was that their copy of the multiplication table got ripped and some got lost.


Since multiplication is the inverse of division and division becomes a bit easier if one has mastered multiplication, and since giving the learners with the copy of the multiplication table would help them to memorize the multiplication facts fast, next school year, I will give them the laminated ones so it would last long, and they would be more motivated to study it because it is durable and presentable.

And I’m also planning to use the student-centered philosophies that I have learned from our first LAC session especially the philosophy of constructivism in teaching them about the topic on solving multi-step routine and non-routine problems involving division and any of the other operations of whole numbers to be  able to maximize my pupils’ active participation, empower them to construct their understanding collaboratively and spark their curiosity and help them foster a deeper comprehension of the concept.

I want my pupils to meaningfully grasp the concept, leading to a sense of ownership in their learning and see how they find the relevance of the concept that they learned in their real life.

I believe that the philosophy of constructivism nurtures their critical thinking as they encounter diverse problem-solving scenarios and are given the chance to figure out solutions to solve the given problems by themselves.

As an educator, I want to marvel at their growth and the joy of guiding them on a journey of self-discovery and knowledge acquisition. I love to witness how my pupils find their learning meaningful, long lasting, and relevant if they will be given the chance to explore things and create the concepts/knowledge for themselves. 

                And I am looking forward to seeing the positive results of my positive plans for my learners!
