Mathematical performance of the college freshmen students in discovery method


Eddie L Besto

This study aimed to assess Students Mathematical Performance using Discovery Method with the lesson exemplar of Bruner. There were thirty-nine (39) who are the respondents in this endeavor, and treated the said method. A forty (40) item- researcher- made test which is subjected for validation from the experts. Before the formal conduct of the class, students were given a test, results reveals that the mean was 24.50. Topics included are the following; Functions of Acute Angles, Logarithmic Solutions of Right Triangles, and Trigonometric Functions of any Angles. The researcher uses the descriptive method; purposive sampling, and were analyze through pre-post testing strategy. Results show that the mean of the students during the post-test is 29.44, and therefore, student’s mathematical performance has increased having the mean difference of 4.94 using the discovery method.
