However, it poses difficulties for many students because of the complexity of the solution process. There are various factors that affect students’ ability to solve mathematical word problems. Hence, this study was conducted to investigate the factors affecting Bhutanese secondary school students' ability to solve mathematical word problems. This study employed a qualitative case study approach. Data was collected through semi-structured interviews, classroom observations, and document analysis. Four mathematics teachers and four students were selected as participants based on purposive sampling. The data were analyzed using thematic analysis. The findings revealed that factors such as language proficiency, reading skills, and contextual understanding affect students' ability in solving mathematical word problems. Moreover, the language proficiency of students, as well as teachers, was the most important factor for solving mathematical word problems. The study recommends the Ministry of Education places more importance on reading activities across schools in Bhutan to enhance language proficiency.</p> 2021-02-17T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## The Existence and Uniqueness of the Solution of a Diusive Predator-Prey Model with Omnivory and General Nonlinear Functional Response 2021-03-01T20:20:47+00:00 Wensheng Yang <p>In this work, we consider a three species modified Lesie-Gower food web model with general&nbsp; nonlinear functional response and omnivory which is defined as feeding on more than one trophic&nbsp;level. The carrying capacity of the model is proportional to the population size of the biotic&nbsp;resource plus a const. The main objective of this paper is to investigate the existence and&nbsp; uniqueness of the solution of this model. It is shown that the omnivory has important influence&nbsp;on the existence and uniqueness of the solution of the model.</p> 2021-02-18T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## On Frink's Type Metrization of Weighted Graphs 2021-03-02T20:20:49+00:00 Mara Florencia Acosta Hugo Aimar Ivana Gomez <p>Using the technique of the metrization theorem of uniformities with countable bases, in this note we provide, test and compare an explicit algorithm to produce a metric d(x, y) between the vertices x and y of an anity weighted undirected graph.</p> 2021-02-20T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tracer Study of Bs in Mathematics Graduates (2001 – 2015) of the College of Science, University of Eastern Philippines 2021-03-02T20:20:48+00:00 Mary Jane B. Calpa Ida E. Esquierdo Olga D. Unay <p>A descriptive research was conducted to trace the whereabouts of the graduates of Bachelor of Science in Mathematics of the College of Science, University of Eastern Philippines. The study determined the employability of the graduates from the first batch of 2001 up to 2015. It determined the graduates who are employed whether related or not to their course; what type of jobs they have; what kind of skills they learned; and how much they earned from their jobs. Majority of the respondents are gainfully employed. Most of them are on contractual basis and are working in the Philippines. From the 110 graduates, 91 are employed while no data were gathered for the 19 graduates. Majority are professionals working as teachers in the secondary and tertiary level. Problem solving skills is most useful in their personal and professional growth. The teacher-student relationship is most rated that contributes to the degree they finished at the College of Science.</p> 2021-02-23T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
