ASSESSMENT ON THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE ALGORITHM APPROACH IN TEACHING PHYSICS
Keywords:Algorithm Approach, Effectiveness of Instruction, Teaching Physics
The need to implement more vigorously new approaches in teaching and learning has become a necessity for education. It is essential to use new teaching approaches and strategies such that creating knowledge and developing skills will not only be easier but also more meaningful to students. One of the new approaches nowadays in the field of science is the algorithm approach. Thus, this study assesses the effectiveness of the algorithm approach in teaching Physics. The descriptive type of research was used with the questionnaire as the main instrument in gathering data. Respondents of the study were 42 science teachers from Batangas National High School for the school year 2017-2018. The statistical tool used in the study was weighted mean. The study revealed that algorithm approach was effective in teaching physics particularly in encouraging independent learning in problem solving, making students solve physics problems more easily, and arousing students’ curiosity.
