Vincent N. Miclat is Prestigious Sessions Speaker at IN4OBE Global Summit 2022
Mr. Vincent N. Miclat is a graduate of Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics from the University of the Philippines Visayas in 2018. He is currently finishing his Master of Education (Mathematics) at the same university. He is an Instructor at the Division of Physical Sciences and Mathematics of the College of Arts and Sciences, University of the Philippines Visayas. He is a previous Senior High School Mathematics teacher of the Schools Division of Iloilo, stationed at Palaca-Damilisan National High School. Mr. Miclat has been teaching college and high school Mathematics for more than three years. A novice in the profession, he found interest in teaching Mathematics to students, as the subject is perceived to be difficult and heavily content-based. His research interest is in Mathematics education and problem-solving, inspired by his research adviser, Dr. Divinagracia. He is currently writing a study about the effects of language on the problem-solving performance of students from a metacognitive viewpoint.
The study “Ano Ni Man? : Accuracy of the Encoded Mathematical Symbols in Elementary Algebra” is an unpublished research study that is a product of the curiosity brought about by a discussion in the class of Dr. Divinagracia. While most Mathematics educators focus on finding the most effective strategies and techniques to improve Mathematics teaching, the researchers saw the need to explore one of the foundations of Mathematics learning, which is the learning of Mathematical symbols. The study investigates the accuracy of the encoded information on basic Mathematics symbols, which is essential in the understanding of higher and more complex Mathematical concepts
