Conference and Enrichment Sessions on the New GEC

Last September 2-3, 2017, the Council of Deans and Department Chairpersons of Colleges of Arts and Sciences (CODDCCAS) Region V held a Conference and Enrichment Sessions on the New General Education Curriculum at the Ateneo de Naga University in Naga City. According to the Commission on Higher Education Regional Office V CHED Regional Memorandum number 82 series of 2017, the activity aims to “enrich approaches in teaching the new GE courses that the General Education teachers will be handling this SY 2018-2019.”

I and Marivic Fullante handled the sessions on “Mathematics in the Modern World.” (I lectured during the morning of September 3, 2017, and she lectured during the afternoon.) Here are the slides that I used: Introduction, Mathematics in Our World, Mathematical Language and Symbols, Problem Solving and Reasoning, and Geometric Designs.

I also talked about the teaching of mathematics using the Filipino language.

Understanding Physiological Complexities using a Mathematical Microscope

When the Bicol Science, Technology & Engineering Conference 2017 was cancelled, one of the plenary speakers, Aurelio Asug De Los Reyes V, agreed to still give his talk but to a smaller audience: the faculty, staff, and students of Ateneo de Naga University. The talk on mathematical modeling of physiological processes is being organized by ADNU’s Department of Mathematics, Department of Natural Sciences, and Graduate School on January 25, 2017 from 2 pm to 4 pm at the CCMF Amphitheater.
