Background/Objectives: Cooperative learning is a potential strategy for Mathematics instruction. The study aimed to determine the effectiveness of cooperative learning on academic performance in mathematics for junior high school students. Methods/Statistical analysis: The study used a quasi-experimental research design. The study respondents were grade 9 and grade 10 students of Bamban National High School, Masinloc, Zambales, Philippines. The research instrument is in the form of pre-test and post-test. The data gathered was tabulated for statistical treatment, analysis and interpretation using Frequency and Percentage Distribution, Weighted Mean, Pearson r Correlation Analysis, and T-test. Findings: The findings reveal that the academic Performance in Mathematics of the respondents from grade 9 and grade 10 are both satisfactory. The respondents' level of Performance during the pre-test did not meet expectations for both grade 9 and grade 10. In contrast, the respondents' level of Performance after using cooperative learning is both satisfactory for grade 9 and grade 10. The computed significance value for grade 9 and grade 10 indicates a significant relationship between the respondents' academic Performance in Mathematics and pre-test level of Performance. Also, there was a significant relationship between the respondents' academic performance in Mathematics and post-test level of Performance. Both grade 9 and grade 10 students were found to have a significant difference in performance level on pre-test and post-test after using cooperative learning as intervention. Improvements/Applications: The study's findings will provide insights into how to improve their classroom teaching practices.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
