Use of Filipino Language as Medium of Instruction in Teaching Advanced Algebra Class
This study aimed at testing the effectiveness of using Filipino language in teaching Advanced Algebra compared to the use of English Language. It described the performance of two groups of students in solving problems in Advanced Algebra before and after a series of instruction using pre-test and post-test design and testing whether there is a significant difference between the post-test scores of the two groups of subjects. This study was conducted in Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology – Sumacab Campus and selected 3rd year bachelor students of secondary major in Mathematics (14) as subjects. The subjects were statistically divided into the control group and the experimental group based on their problem-solving skills in Advanced Algebra. The study used the experimental design of research. T-test was used for dependent and independent samples to test whether there is a significant difference between the pre-test and post-test scores of the groups and between the post-tests of the two groups. Results revealed that there is enough statistical evidence to accept the null hypothesis that there is no significant difference in the problem-solving skills of subjects under the control group in the pre-test and post-test. Also, after applying statistical treatments, it made enough statistical evidence to reject the null hypothesis that there is no significant difference in the problem-solving skills of subjects under the experimental group in the pre-test and post-test. Also, it reveals the rejection of the hypothesis that there is a significant difference in the problem-solving skills of the students between the two groups after instruction.
