From Trends International Mathematics and Sciences Study (TIMSS) shows the Philippines scored significantly lower than other countries that participated in the Math and Science assessment. The Philippines only scored 297 in Mathematics. That is, 19% of Filipino students were on the low benchmark, which means that they had some basic mathematical knowledge, while 81% did not even reach this level. The knowledge of probabilistic concepts is difficult, given the diversity of representations associated with this concept. Probability is hard to understand for various reasons, including the disparity between intuition and conceptual development(Mullis et al., 2020). Moreover, the percentage distribution in Region 2, Grade 6 test-takers on proficiency level in Mathematics. Reveals that 0.17% of the total number of examinees are highly proficient in Mathematics while 2.29% are proficient. And 97% of the examinees fall under the proficiency level in Mathematics(Department of Education, 2019). The previous yearâ€™s result also reveals that Canocotan National High School scored only 71.21% of the proficiency level in Mathematics for school year 2018-2019. That is too low for the proficiency level target of about 75%. It is on that premise mentioned above that the researcher is inspired to conduct a study math-tulungan para math-tuto: a technology-based tutorial as intervention in solving problems involving probability. The completion of this study could be of great help to the administration and management system as a basis of policy review and implementation.
Keywords: Technology-Based, Tutorial as Intervention in Solving Problems Involving Probability.
