    The test results showed that among public high school students, misconceptions concerning some of the basic elementary level number skills are widespread and persistent. Most students either failed to understand the given information well enough to develop a strategy, or they set up a strategy which was inappropriate to answering the given question. The recommendations given are as follows: remedial teaching, formative teaching in the classroom, correct misconceptions in textbooks, and subject-specific pedagogy, meaning teaching approaches in the key concepts of subjects.

    This small book has been written to share the results of a research study on concept development with teachers, curriculum developers and researchers. The science concept involves the human circulatory system which teachers say is one of the most difficult topics to teach. The intervention activities were constructivist in nature, initiated by eliciting prior knowledge of students before engaging them in real-life experiences and the use of models and pictures.

    This is a secondary level textbook intended to deepen awareness and develop scientific knowledge and understanding of earth processes such as weather, ocean movements, erosion, and volcanic eruption. Its Philippine orientation, i.e., conditions and processes observable in the country and data about natural phenomena, sites and resources, not only concretizes theories and principles but also enables our students to identify with their own country. To ensure the development of concepts, activities containing specifications of materials, detailed procedures and well thought-out questions are woven into the text at points where they can be of most help to students.
