The series places heavy emphasis on learner’s participation as it adopts the activity-oriented approach. Each book presents lessons with real-life themes, pictures, and illustrations to develop the learners’ sense of meaning making in the realm of mathematics. It teaches math concepts, which are intensively integrated with various subject areas, to enable learners in making connections. Through the authentic approach, the series hastens not only the learners’ computational skills but also the problem-solving skills. It addresses different types of learners through the following math exercises:

  • Let’s Work Together – facilitates group work and collaborative learning
  • On Your Own – enables independence and mastery of skills and concepts taught
  • Take the Challenge – deepens learners’ mathematical concepts, mathematical reasoning, and higher-order-thinking skills
  • Fun with Math – leads learners in applying mathematical skills in actual experiences

Dr. Ernesto Y. Sibal was one of the few Filipinos in academic publishing who can irrefutably lay claim to these three titles—Patriot, Pioneer and Innovator. A staunch patriot, Dr. Sibal fiercely advocated the vision of designating Filipino-authored books for young Filipino learners. This vision was enabled by the establishment of Alemar’s Bookstore in 1958, and through the foresight and drive of Alegria Rodriguez, who shared in the vision of her husband, she helped galvanize then fledgling Alemar's Bookstore as the place to go for textbooks and school needs, propelling it to become the first established bookstore chain in the country.
