The Lesson Guides in Elementary Mathematics were developed by the
Department of Education through the Bureau of Elementary Education in
coordination with the Ateneo de Manila University. These resource materials
have been purposely prepared to help improve the mathematics instruction in
the elementary grades. These provide integration of values and life skills using
different teaching strategies for an interactive teaching/learning process.
Multiple intelligences techniques like games, puzzles, songs, etc. are also
integrated in each lesson; hence, learning Mathematics becomes fun and
enjoyable. Furthermore, Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) activities are
incorporated in the lessons.
The skills are consistent with the Basic Education Curriculum
(BEC)/Philippine Elementary Learning Competencies (PELC). These should be
used by the teachers as a guide in their day-to-day teaching plans.
