INTRODUCTION
This Handbook aims to provide the general public – parents, students, researchers, and other
stakeholders – an overview of the Mathematics program at the secondary level. Those in education,
however, may use it as a reference for implementing the 2002 secondary education curriculum, or as a
source document to inform policy and guide practice.
For quick reference, the Handbook is outlined as follows:
* The description defines the focus and the emphasis of the learning area as well as the
language of instruction used.
* The unit credit indicates the number of units assigned to a learning area computed
on a 40-minute per unit credit basis and which shall be used to evaluate a student’s
promotion to the next year level.
* The time allotment specifies the number of minutes allocated to a learning area on a
daily (or weekly, as the case may be) basis.
* The expectancies refer to the general competencies that the learners are expected to
demonstrate at the end of each year level.
* The scope and sequence outlines the content, or the coverage of the learning area in
terms of concepts or themes, as the case may be.
* The suggested strategies are those that are typically employed to develop the content,
build skills, and integrate learning.
* The materials include those that have been approved for classroom use. The application
of information and communication technology is encouraged, where available.
* The grading system specifies how learning outcomes shall be evaluated and the
aspects of student performance which shall be rated.
* The learning competencies are the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that the
students are expected to develop or acquire during the teaching-learning situations.
* Lastly, sample lesson plans are provided to illustrate the mode of integration, where
appropriate, the application of life skills and higher order thinking skills, the valuing
process and the differentiated activities to address the learning needs of students.
3.
The Handbook is designed as a practical guide and is not intended to structure the operationalization of
the curriculum or impose restrictions on how the curriculum shall be implemented. Decisions on how
best to teach and how learning outcomes can be achieved most successfully rest with the school principals
and teachers. They know the direction they need to take and how best to get there.

SAMPLE LESSON PLANS
MATH I : LINEAR EQUATIONS IN TWO VARIABLES
Competency E1. Describe the Cartesian Coordinate Plane (x-axis, y-axis, quadrant, origin)
Time Frame. 2 Sessions
Objectives:
At the end of the sessions, the students must be able to:
1. Describe the Cartesian coordinate plane
2. Given a point, describe its distance from the x or y axis
3. Given a point on the coordinate plane, give its coordinates
4. Given a pair of coordinates, plot the points
5. Given the coordinates of a point, determine the quadrant where it is located
Development of the Lesson:
A. Introduce the Cartesian coordinate plane using the number line. State that the rectangular
coordinate plane are also called Cartesian plane can be constructed by drawing a pair of
perpendicular number lines to intersect at zero on each line.
B. Ask the students to describe the two lines and their point of intersection, to develop the following
ideas:
The two number lines, which are perpendicular lines, are called coordinate axes.
The horizontal line is called the x-axis.
The vertical line is called the y-axis
y-axis.
The point where the two lines intersect is called the origin and is labeled 0 on both axes.
The two axes divide the plane into four regions called quadrants: the first, second, third and
fourth quadrants in a counterclockwise direction.
30.
C. State that each point in the coordinate plane has corresponding distance from the y-axis and
from the x-axis, that a pair of numbers is needed to tell how many units to the right or left of
the y-axis and how many units above or below of the x-axis the point is located. The pairs of
numbers will be the name of the point. This pair of numbers is called ordered pair
pair.
D. Present the following examples and ask students to describe the distance of each point from the
y or x-axis
1. If x = -2 answer: the point is 2 units to the left of the y-axis
2. If x = 0 answer: the point is in the y-axis
3. If x = 2 answer: the point is 2 units to the right of y-axis
4. If y = -3 answer: the point is 3 units below the x-axis
5. If y = 3 answer: the point is 3 units above the x-axis
Hence, the ordered pair (-2, 3) is located 2 units to the left of the y-axis and 3 units above the
x-axis.
E. Let the student observe what the signs are of the coordinates of the points in the different
quadrants. (Both positive in quadrant 1, negative-positive in II, negative-negative in III, and
positive-negative in IV.)
F. State that in the ordered pair (x, y), x and y are called coordinates of the point. x is called the
x-coordinate or abscissa and y is called the y-coordinate or ordinate.

I. Present the following example
Locate the points P(-1,2), Q(2,3), R(-3,-4), S(3,-5) in the plane.

plane represents the graph of the set. Sometimes the points in the graph form a recognizable
pattern, just like the example that follows:
Plot the points on the graph provided. Connect each point with the next one by a line segment in
the order given.
1. (2,0) 6. (-3, -3) 11. (2, -7)
2. (2,6) 7. (-3. -7) 12. (3, -7)

4. (-2,6) 9. (-1, -6) 14. (2, -2)
5. (-2, -2) 10. (1, -6) 15. (2,0)

___________.
33.
Suggested Teaching Strategies:

point on a vertical line has the same x-coordinate and every point on the horizontal
line has the same y-coordinate.
- Cite instances where the use of the Cartesian plane is found. Assign student to
observe and find other applications of the plane.
2. Provision for Multiple Intelligences

graph paper using only lines. The students will then give the coordinates of the
points where the lines intersect.

hunting. Indicate in the treasure map the reference point and the locations or
position of buildings, places. The whole group will work for a common goal-to find
the treasure.

below so that they can come up with the derivation as outlined on the right side.
1. Write the general form of a quadratic equation 1. ax + bx + c = 0
2. Multiply both sides of the equation by 4a 2. 4a x + 4abx + 4ac = 0
3. Subtract 4ac from both sides of the equation 3. 4a x + 4abx = - 4ac
4. Add to both sides of the equation a term
which makes the left side a perfect square trinomial 4. 4a x + 4abx + b = b - 4ac
5. Express the left side as a square of a binomial 5. (2ax + b) = b - 4ac
6. Extract the left side as a square of a binomial 6 2ax + b =
7. Add -b to both sides of the equation 7. 2ax = - b =
8. Divide both sides by 2a 8. x =
2a
B. Ask the student to multiply both sides of the equation by a or 9a instead of 4a in the second
step and carry out the derivation process. Find out if they are getting the same results. Draw a
conclusion about the term which may be used to multiply the equation with, in the second step
to carry out the derivation of the quadratic formula.
45.
C. Ask the students to rewrite the quadratic formula as
x=
2a
and to memorize this. Tell the students that b - 4ac is called the “discriminant”. Show how
they may use the discriminant to determine whether a given quadratic equation has:
a. equal or unequal roots
