This paper presents the collaborative efforts of a university, an international non-government agency and the government’s Department of Education in an on-going five year teacher development project designed to enhance mathematics teachers’ pedagogical content knowledge for teaching Statistics and Probability across the K to 12 Mathematics curriculum in the Philippines. The project comprised three phases: (1) capacity building of workshop facilitators and course development, (2) implementation of workshop-based courses for elementary, junior and senior high school math teachers; and (3) development of a support structure with online system for participating teachers. Using pre and post-workshop assessments, we analyzed and document teachers’ knowledge and pedagogical skills for teaching various topics in Statistics and Probability within their levels.
