Dear ____________________:

Greetings of peace!

The Mathematics Teachers Association of the Philippines-Iloilo Chapter (MTAP-IC), Inc. will hold its Third Regional Mathematics Investigation and Modeling Seminar-Workshop on

April 20, 21 and 27, 2013 at the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) Building of the West Visayas State University, Luna Street, La Paz, Iloilo City.

This sought-after seminar-workshop has invited experts trained in University of the Philippines-Diliman and Department of Science and Technology (DOST). It is designed for high school in-service teachers in the region with the theme: “Enriching classroom instruction through Mathematical Investigation and Modeling in the K-12 Curriculum.” This is in recognition of the importance of mathematical investigation and modeling as an effective and efficient teaching tool in the delivery of more in-depth, relevant, and lasting math awareness and literacy to our young mathematicians.

Specifically, this activity has the following objectives:

1.equip math teachers the necessary knowledge, mindset, experience, and skills to mentor students in doing math investigations, modeling, and problem solving initiatives; a mathematics culture among teachers (that will eventually cascade to their students) that is critical, progressive, developmental, collaborative, and analytical through math investigations;

3.create a lasting and more personal venue for sharing effective mathematics teaching practices, materials, and methods; and

4.update mathematics teachers with the MTAP-IC activities.
