TLRC, Math Cluster Conduct Supplemental Learning Program for Math

As the Teaching and Learning Resource Center continues to strive to strengthen the skills of students enrolled in the different courses of UP Visayas (UPV), the office deemed it fitting to collaborate with the Mathematics Cluster of the Division of Physical Sciences and Mathematics (DPSM) to organize a supplemental learning program for students enrolled in the different courses.

The inception of this initiative was brought forth to address the need for skills in problem-solving to prepare Math students for the heap of approaching exams as the semester ends.

The supplemental program for Mathematics was aptly named AlgeBreak: Breaking down Problems into Solutions and was held on November 26, 2022, via Zoom.

Initially, the program was only supposed to cater to students enrolled in different Math courses, but due to the needs of the students who will be taking entrance exams, licensure exams, and professional eligibility exams, the TLRC and the Math cluster opened the program to all, totaling to 174 participants.

Four faculty members from the Mathematics cluster of the DPSM also served as resource speakers and refreshed the knowledge and skills of students in foundation topics in Math with presentations and interactive quizzes. The resource speakers and their topics were the following:

* Prof. Jeoffrey Libo-on – Real Numbers System, Laws of Inequalities (Order Axioms), Laws of Exponents, and Special Products

* Prof. Marierose Chavez – Factoring of Polynomials, Solving Equations, and Solving Inequalities

* Prof. Maryene Sy Piecco – Least Common Denominators, Fractions, and Equations Involving Rational Functions

* Prof. Raquel Cajayon – Simplification of Radicals, Equations involving Radicals, and Radicals in Derivatives

The TLRC and DPSM see this program as the strengthening of collaborative programs between their officers. It can be noted that this collaboration is also the backbone of the Bridge Program in Mathematics for incoming first-year students held every start of the school year. (Mr. Czar Ian Angel Esquivel, TLRC)
