This study is anchored on three learning theories: Thorndike’s Connectionism Theory, Bandura and Wallace’s Social Learning Theory and Bruner’s Theory of Learning. Theories and Concepts in Developing the Module Fig. 1. The model shows the theories and concepts in the development of the module in Basic Calculus. The central ring in the model is the developed module in Basic Calculus. The four outer rings are the theories and concepts that help support the development of module as indicated by the arrows. The circular lines connecting the four outer rings indicate the strong bond that exists between and among the theories and concepts. First, the connectionism or stimulus-response theory. This theory is based on the association between stimuli and responses. For every stimulus, there is a corresponding response and the connection between the stimulus and the response is called the S-R (Bond, 2012). The module to be developed by this study, a warm-up exercise on the introductory part on each lesson will serve as the stimulus and the corresponding work to be accomplished by the students in the later part of the lesson will serve as the responses. Students will work independently on the activities required by the module; hence, connectionism becomes evident as one activity is accomplished at a time. To make his connectionism theory more efficient, Thorndike developed his three principal laws of learning: the law of readiness, the law of exercise and
