Recent and current professional activities: I am a member of the High School Mathematics Group and Chair of the Elementary Mathematics Group (until October 2002) at UP NISMED. Researchwise my involvements are: developed the scoring system and was a researcher in the school accreditation research project  Incentive System for High Performing Public Elementary Schools in the Philippines conducted by UP NISMED under the Third Elementary Education Project of the Department of Education (October 2000 April 2002); I also serve as adviser and panel member of doctoral and master's mathematics education students of the UP College of Education and UP Open University; member of the research study on the 'Effectiveness of the PASMEP Teacher's Resource Materials'; and coordinator of the LPS in the Philippines. In relation to curriculum development, I have just developedtwo chapters on Sourcebook for Classroom Use of High School Mathematics Teachers, and five chapters on Sourcebook for Classroom Use of Elementary School Mathematics Teachers and was coauthor in mathematics of a book on assessment items in elementary school mathematics. For teacher training, I coordinated and served as trainer of a onemonth inservice training program which ended in May 2002. I also served as consultant in the development of lesson plans in High School Mathematics under a research project, Science Pathways of the Philippine Foundation on Science and Technology.

Recent and current professional activities: As Science Education Specialist, I am into research, curriculum development and teacher training. Since 2001, I have been coordinating the research on the Learners' Perspective Study in the Philippines. I also coordinate a study comparing the teaching of High School Mathematics III and IV by users and nonusers of teachers' resource materials developed through the PhilippinesAustralia Science and Mathematics Education Project (PASMEP). As a member of the High School Mathematics writing team, I am presently writing two chapters of a sourcebook for teachers which is due to come out in 2003. Recently, I taught a unit on problem solving in a onemonth inservice training course for mathematics teachers. I am now developing training materials for a threeday course on the use of technology in mathematics teaching.
