[Full Text]



Bryan Joseph E. Matillano, Teodora G.Asis, Jennie A. Collantes Rona A. Idlisan, Mariz Q. Sudario





Music and action integration had been used in a lot of pedagogical studies in the field of science education. This study sought to situatedemographic factors such as sex and educational background to use it as a tool in teaching mitosis. Using experimental- correlational design, the level of significance was identified using t-test for the performance based on the pre and posttests. Results showed that music-action integration was an effective tool in teaching mitosis compared to the traditional lecture discussion. Factors such as sex and educational background did not affect students’ performance.
