“MathDali,” Knowledge Channel’s educational TV show that makes learning math fun and easy, has introduced 12 new short-form episodes to complement the show’s first season.
The first four episodes are hosted by actor-comedian Igi Boy Flores.
The new episodes follow a successful first season led by Kapamilya host and self-confessed math-geek Robi Domingo and feature relevant math lessons and strategies that adhere to the K to 12 Curriculum of the Department of Education (DepEd). Kids can expect to find fun and interesting ways to solve simple to complex math challenges like measuring perimeter, identifying the area of irregular plane figures, and other topics that could often intimidate learners.
Each episode of “MathDali” illustrates a math concept through real-life situations. According to Knowledge Channel Foundation president and founder Rina Lopez-Bautista, the show aims to help students learn math by making the learning experience enjoyable and exciting, and by maximizing multimedia technology.
“The show is produced to help students develop conceptual understanding, critical thinking, and problem solving, allowing them to learn in new ways, making their viewing experience both fun and educational,” added Bautista.
The topics, which were recommended by DepEd as cornerstones for higher-grade math topics, cover various concepts that were found to be of the most interest for both educators and students.
The new episodes were chosen after a series of MathDali previews which involved DepEd math supervisors and elementary math teachers, MathTed (Philippine Council on Mathematics Teacher Educators), and focus group discussions with actual fourth grade teachers and learners.
Other MathDali hosts will also lead the band in succeeding episodes, including new additions such as Goin’ Bulilit stars JB Agustin, Sofia Millares, and Lance Lucido.
MathDali airs every day at 10:20 am, 3:00 pm and 5:00 pm on Knowledge Channel, which can be watched on ABS-CBN TV Plus, SKY Direct, and SKY Cable. It also implements professional development programs for teachers and education leaders.
