...approach in Physics and Math in the studies of Fourth Year students of EHSD INTRODUCTION Dynamic Learning Program was conceptualized by Dr. Christopher Bernido and Dr. Maria Victoria Carpio-Bernido. Both of them are Ramon Magsaysay awardees, they made this learning program in order to provide better education in Filipino students who have their own potentials. This school year 2012-2013 was the very first year that EHSD adapt this program. It includes tons of writings and less discussing, this helps students to study on their own. On the other hand, Physics and Math are the hardest subject areas in Fourth year, these subject areas requires a lot of skills, explanations and patience in order to understand what the concept is. Unlike other subjects like TLE and History, Physics and Math needs a lot of mathematical abilities. This research paper will soon answer what are the bad effects of having Dynamic Learning Program in Physics and Math instead of the normal approach that was given years before. This research will specify the bad effects and how can we avoid those things while studying. This will let us see if the Dynamic Learning Program is applicable and efficient for subjects which require a lot of explanations. In this research we will conduct a deeper definition of Dynamic Learning Program from where it was originated, to the people behind it up to the people who benefit from it. After knowing these all, we will conduct a research about how students learn Math and......

...E – International Scientific Research Journal, VOLUME – V, ISSUE – 2, 2013, ISSN 2094 - 1749 FACTORS INFLUENCING THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE IN PHYSICS OF DMMMSU- MLUC LABORATORY HIGH SCHOOL FOURTH YEAR STUDENTS S.Y. 2011-2012 Noemi Mangaoang-Boado noemi2569@yahoo.com Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University Mid La Union Campus San Fernando City, 2500 La Union, Philippines ABSTRACT This study focused on the investigation on the predictors of the academic performance in Physics of Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University Mid La Union Campus (DMMMSU-MLUC) Laboratory High School Fourth Year Students for the School Year 2011-2012. Factors such as family, student, school and teacher factors were correlated to academic performance. Significant relationships to academic performance in Physics occurred for the four factors namely, Grade Point Average (GPA) in Math, GPA in English, attitude towards Physics, and study habits. The results imply that students’ performance in Physics will be higher if they perform better in English and Mathematics; if they show positive attitude towards Physics; and if they possess good study habits. Among the factors, GPA in Math had the best influence to academic performance in Physics. KEYWORDS: performance, factor, predictor INTRODUCTION Learning (represented by academic performance in this study) of students is not confined in a closed space. Different factors bombard this learning which can either enhance or undermine it. These include......

Math

...Math was always the class that could never quite keep my attention in school. I was a daydreamer and a poor student and applying myself to it was pretty much out of the question. When I would pay some attention I would still forget the steps it had taken me to find the solution. So, when the next time came around I was lost. This probably came about because as a kid I wasn’t real fond of structure. I was more into abstract thought and didn’t think that life required much more than that at the time. I was not interested in things I had to write down and figure out step by step on a piece of paper. I figured I could be Tom Sawyer until about the age of seventy two. My thoughts didn’t need a rhyme or reason and didn’t need laws to keep them within any certain limits. The furthest I ever made it in school was Algebra II and I barely passed that. The reason wasn’t that I couldn’t understand math. It was more that I didn’t apply myself to the concepts of it, or the practice and study it took to get there. I was always more interested in other concepts. Concepts that were gathered by free thinkers, philosophers, idealists. Now I knew that a lot of those figures I read about tried their hand in the sciences, physics, and mathematics in their day, but I was more interested in their philosophical views on everyday life. It was not until I started reading on the subject of quantum physics and standard physics that I became interested in math. The fact that the laws of standard......

...School Physics Effectively Christopher C. Bernido and l\faria Victoria Carpio-.Rernido Research Center for Theoretical Physics Central Visayan Institute Foundation Jagna, Bohol 6308, Philippines The Ascending Levels of Learning and Pedagogical ~1axims that could guide effective teaching of physics are presented. As an example of how these may be applied, the Dynamic Learning Prof:,lfam (DLP) of the Central Visayan Institute Foundation is briefly discussed. The DLP, together with 21st century technology, provides a scenario where the perennial lack of high school physics teachers in the Philippines can be bypassed. Introduction The breadth of topics that may be covered in teaching physics can be extremely wide. After all, physics probes the smallest things in the universe (the quarks and leptons), aiJ the way up to the "biggest" subject one can think of-the birth, death, and fate of the universe itself. One definition for physics states that it is the study of matter and energy. Most everything in the universe is either matter or energy, and this can make physics quite interdisciplinary. No wonder, therefore, that sub-areas in physics may be referred to as Biophysics, Geophysics~ Chemical Physics, Mathematical Physics, Astrophysics, Nuclear Physics, Econophysics, etc., and one also has the physics of sports, the physics of art, and so on. Because of its breadth, there is always the danger to learn physics by rote. How then do we approach the teaching of physics?......

...spark my interest in science. Later as a middle school student, I became much more aware that I enjoyed and excelled in science and math more than any other subjects. Entering into my middle school's math and science accelerated program allowed me to further develop my interest in science as I took Honors Biology and spent my summer between 8th and 9th grade volunteering for Cornell’s Cooperative Extension conducting water sampling for effluent matter at local bays. It was also at this point that I started to give thought to what careers I may want to pursue, specifically in a scientific field. In my past three years of high school, I've taken great initiative to enrich my scientific experience and identify which fields directly interest me. I became a member and now president of my school's selective science research program, attended lectures at Stony Brook University and started ready Scientific News. Reading about Physics made me inquisitive about the unknown. In math I started a trail-blazing path by self-teaching Math B (does it have another name) during the summer between 9th and 10th grade which allowed me to go onto Pre-Calculus sophomore year. To prepare myself for my Intel Research project in Astrophysics I decided it would be beneficial to learn Applied Linear Algebra at Stony Brook University. To-date I have completed all possible math...
