To address the Philippines’ students’ low numeracy levels, this study aims to determine and assess the interventions employed by teachers to enhance numeracy skills of grade 7 students at Baguio City National High School (BCNHS) with difficulty in mathematics and the effectiveness of these strategies. The study paper focuses on a quantitative method. It includes the use of a checklist anchored by a frequency distribution table for the multiple interventions utilized by grade 7 Math teachers. The effectiveness of the teachers’ interventions will also be assessed using a Likert scale.
The result showed that the interventions applied by the teachers are as follows: Conference with parents and students, One – on – One Tutorial, Redo Activities with Low scores, Home Visitation, Provide Supplementary Materials and Activities, Lessen Items of Activities and Remedial Class. As a result, the effectiveness of these interventions range from moderately effective to highly effective, depending on the number of teachers who implement them. The interventions for enhancing students’ numeracy skills are reported to be effective. It closes the gap between learners who are likely to fail Mathematics and those who are not. These interventions are the teacher’s weapon in combating BCNHS’s low numeracy rate among grade 7 students.
