Understanding the s & t program

  2. 2. Responsible and morally upright graduates from schools offering relevant and innovative Science and Mathematics education VISION
  3. 3. Centers of excellence in Science, Mathematics and Research education in the schools divisions that shall develop the full potential of students along the areas of Science, Mathematics and Research MISSION
  4. 4. OBJECTIVES OF THE SCIENCE PROGRAM To widen access to quality secondary education in Science and Mathematics To develop a science culture among students with the view to prepare them for careers in or for higher learning in Science, Mathematics and Research
  5. 5. COMPONENTS OF THE SCIENCE PROGRAM Curriculum and Instruction  Curriculum Development  Instructional Materials Development Learning Environment  Physical Facilities Development  Equipment Developoment Management and Governance  Administration  Finance
  6. 6. FEATURES OF THE K TO 12 CURRICULUM Follows the Spiral Progression Approach Promotes enduring understanding of the different topics and concepts across disciplines and across subject areas Is defined in terms of standards – expressed in terms of what students should know and the quality and proficiency of the skill that they are expected to demonstrate as evidence of learning SPA SPS S&T Tech-Voc SPED Core Curriculum SPJ
  7. 7. LEARNING AREAS AND DESCRIPTION Core curriculum are as described in DepED Order No. 31, s. 2012 Eight (8) learning areas of the core curriculum namely Filipino, English, Science, Mathematics, Araling Panlipunan (AP), Technology and Livelihood Education, Music, Art, Physical Education and Health (MAPEH) and Edukasyon sa Pagpapakatao (EsP)
  8. 8. SCIENCE – GRADE 7 The course deals with the basic concepts in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Earth & Space Science. Every quarter presents a different science discipline across grade levels in increasing level of complexity and sophistication. The course is focused on the development of awareness and understanding of practical everyday problems that affect the learners’ lives and those around them.
  9. 9. SPECIAL SCIENCE CURRICULUM Core curriculum based on the K to 12 Basic Program from Grade 7 to Grade 10 except for Technology and Livelihood Education (TLE) which shall be replaced by advanced Science subjects May be further enriched by offering other Science subjects on top of the additional subjects, provided that the requirements of the core curriculum and the Special Program are met

  11. 11. ADVANCED SCIENCE SUBJECTS Environmental Science The course is designed to introduce students to major environmental concepts and problems that affect the world in which we live in. It provides students the opportunity to enhance their awareness of the interactions of people and their environment and to focus on the application of concepts to real-life issues in order to promote understanding of practical everyday problems that affect their lives and their families. Further, this course deals with the evaluation of the relative risks associated with environmental problems and the examination of alternative solutions for resolving or preventing them based on the principle of conservation for sustainable development.
  12. 12. ADVANCED SCIENCE SUBJECTS Information and Communication Technology (ICT) The course is designed to equip students with adequate knowledge necessary to the understanding and appreciation of computers as data processing tools and of the fundamental concepts of electronic data processing. It covers concepts of computer-based information and data processing including introduction to computer concepts, operating systems, file storage and management, office application, internet and webpage design.
  13. 13. TIME ALLOTMENT Core subjects as stipulated in DepED Order No. 31, s. 2012 shall be strictly implemented Advanced subjects for Grade 7 namely: Environmental Science and ICT shall each be allocated 4 hours per week
  14. 14. TIME ALLOTMENT/MEDIUM OF INSTRUCTION FOR THE SPECIAL SCIENCE PROGRAM Subject Medium Hours Per Week Filipino Filipino 4 hours English English 4 hours Science English 4 hours Mathematics English 4 hours Araling Panlipunan Filipino 3 hours Edukasyon sa Pagpapakatao Filipino 2 hours Music, Art, Physical Education, Health English 4 hours Environmental Science Information & Communication Technology English English 4 hours 4 hours Hours Per Day: 7
