Title: The Effects Of Peer Teaching In The Performance Of Students In Mathematics
Name: Editha T. Vasay

The teaching of Mathematics is enjoyable. This is true when the performance of the students is satisfactory or better. Otherwise, it is frustrating. Inspite of the researcher’s long years of teaching experience, exposure to trainings and seminars, giving pieces of advice and motivations to students, using simple language and different techniques and strategies, still many students have poor performance. Based from quizzes and examinations, it is observed that students have poor performance which may be due to weak foundation. Students have no mastery on the operations of whole numbers , integers, decimals, and fractions. Techniques were conceived to improve the situation and peer teaching was used. Peer teaching is a technique in helping students perform better in understanding the different concepts, developing computational skills and their moral, social and emotional values most especially their ability to express their ideas.

Title: Personal-Social Adjustments In Relation To Coping Mechanisms Of SUC Presidents In Mindanao
Name: Rizza B. Bagalanon

The study aimed to determine the relationship between the personal-social adjustments and coping mechanisms of Presidents of State Universities and Colleges in Mindanao during the school year 2008-2009.

The descriptive-correlational method of research was used and the main assessment tool was the questionnaire which was prepared by the researcher. The responses were drawn from twenty nine Presidents and were analyzed using the mean computation, the t-test, f-test and the Pearson r Product Moment Coefficient of Correlation.

The study revealed that there was a significant relationship between the SUC Presidents’ personal-social adjustments and coping mechanisms. This signifies that their personal-social adjustments influence their abilities to cope with work stress. SUC Presidents’ security or well-being in the personal-social aspects is an important factor to be able to cope with things that come along relative to their positions or jobs. It was also revealed that their personal-social adjustments as well as their coping mechanisms were only “high”. Thus, for an improved adjustment and coping levels, SUC Presidents need to attend in the personality enhancement trainings, physical fitness programs and other forms of recreational and relaxation activities in order to unload work burdens and to gain new strength and vitality.

Title: Influence Of Media Strength And Sources Of Nitrogen On Micropropagation Of Ginger, Zingiber Officinale Rosc.
Name: Cecilia C. Villamor

Ginger, Zingiber officinales Rosc. of the family Zingiberaceae is an important plant, valued all over the world as a spice and medicine.

The Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University, in its quest to help the government in sustaining food security, has embarked on initial efforts on helping the development of the local ginger industry. Observations indicate that lack of healthy planting materials limit expansion of ginger production. One method of producing healthy planting stock is by tissue culture. This technique has been used as a tool for propagation of many crop plant species and is increasingly important for commercial propagation.

The experiment was conducted to determine the effects of media strength and sources of nitrogen on shoot and root growth of ginger, Native variety. The results indicated that nitrogen in the form of KNO3 significantly improved proliferation rate of ginger in vitro, in both full and half strength media. Leaf growth was better in media devoid of NH4NO3. Root formation was significantly better in media without NH4NO3

Title: Ecological Trends Of Under Canopy Species Of Eucalyptus Plantations In Bhabhar And Tarai Region Of Indian Central Himalaya
Name: Chandrapal Singh Bohra and L. S.Lodhiyal

The paper deals with species density, diversity, dry matter production and nutrients (i.e. soil and plant nutrients) in under canopy short-lived species under eucalyptus plantation cultivated in Bhabhar and Tarai belt (low-lying lands with high water table adjacent to foot hills) of Kumaun of Indian Central Himalaya. The density and basal area of eucalyptus trees were 400 trees ha-1 and 18.85-34.20 m2ha-1, respectively. Soil bulk density increased, whereas the soil pH decreased with increase in plantation age. The percentage concentration and content of soil nutrients (N, P, K) decreased with increase in age of plantations. The maximum density of under canopy was recorded for Ageratum conyzoides. The species richness was maximum in 5-yr old, whereas the diversity index (2.16-2.62) was found to be the maximum in different seasons recorded for 8-yr old plantation. Dry matter production of under canopy species was 1.7-2.4 t ha-1 and decreased with increase in plantation age. The percent concentration and content of nutrients (NPK) in under canopy species also decreased with increase in plantation age.
