This study delves into the exploration of the process of designing an instructional module, the integrated STEAM module, utilising the ASSURE Model. An instructional module, also known as a teaching and learning module, serves as a structured educational tool designed to enrich the teaching and learning experience. This study employs the ASSURE Model, a systematic instructional design framework for developing comprehensive educational materials and engaging learning activities. The ASSURE Model entails six key stages, namely: Analyze learners, State standards and objectives, Select strategies and resources, Utilise resources, Require learner participation, and Evaluate and revise. The overarching aspiration for this module is that it will serve as an effective tool in improving the proficiency of students in problem solving and creative thinking, ultimately contributing to their performance in geometry problem solving and overall achievement in the field of mathematics.
