The Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. (KCFI) acknowledges the crucial role of Mathematics and Science in developing the backbone of our economy. However, for many Filipino children, one of their most feared subjects is Math. National Achievement Test results over the years have shown that the performance of students in Math have been averaging below 75 percent for both elementary and high school levels.
On the international scene, the Philippines has even performed lower than its neighboring countries in the 2003 Trends in International in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). The Philippines ranked 34th out of 38 countries for high school and 23rd out of 25 countries in elementary and has not participated in the study again since then.
With the introduction of the new K to 12 Curriculum by the Department of Education, Math and Science were finally given the emphasis they needed. Alongside this, KCFI conceptualized a groundbreaking show that aimed to re-introduce Math in a fun and interactive way.
Launched last June 2016, MathDali is a 20-minute video production that challenges and encourages learners to solve equations and answer numerical problems. It is hosted by celebrity youth icon Robi Domingo, along with teen stars Joj and Jai Agpangan, Igiboy Flores, and Vic Robinson.
Your donations will help the Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. produce more MathDali episodes as it explores more strategies across different Math topics.
