Roles and Implications of Ilokano in Learning Mathematics among Intermediate Grades' Learners
Asian Journal of Language, Literature and Culture Studies,
The aim of this study was to find out what role Ilokano plays and its implications in the language of mathematics learners in the intermediate grades. It also wanted to argue that a learner's first language helps them learn a subject, in this case mathematics, that is taught in another language, in this particular study, English, as required by the Philippine Department of Education. Through interviews and thematic analysis of synchronous classes in intermediate grade, this study was able to identify the following roles of Ilokano in the language of mathematics learners in the intermediate grades: (1) establishes a teacher-learner relationship; (2) offers context; (3) clarifies meaning and organizes thoughts; and (4) sets a democratic learning environment. Furthermore, the study found that Ilokano activates intermediate grade learners' critical thinking and problem-solving skills when used in their mathematics classes.
