Abstract:
This action research sought to determine the effectiveness of self-guiding worksheet as a strategy in presenting the topic Trigonometric Identities in Trigonometry among the freshman Bachelor in Secondary Education students of the University of Antique, Sibalom, Antique, Philippines, during the second semester, school year 2013 – 2014. Forty-three (43) students were taught using 10 self-guiding worksheets. After the 5-week intervention, only 40 students took the post-intervention performance test. In the post-intervention performance test, the students got a higher mean score than the pre-intervention performance test, that is, from below average to average. The improvement in the performance of the students was found to be significant. The finding shows that the use of self-guiding worksheet has improved the performance of the students in proving and operating expressions or simplifying identities involving trigonometric functions. The self-guiding worksheet is also their avenue of practicing their mathematical skills in solving trigonometric identities
