This research is designed to examine the implementation of the spiral curriculum structure introduced in the Philippines as part of the K to 12 curriculum reform. The curriculum emphasises the understanding and application of scientific knowledge, the learning of scientific inquiry skills, and the development and demonstration of scientific attitudes and beliefs. The spiral curriculum was initiated with Grade 7 implementation in School Year (SY) 2012/13. By the end of SY 2015/16, this cohort of students will be the first to have completed the full 7–10 new curriculum.
