MATHEMATICS LESSON PLAN
CLASS: 7 | DATE: 27/02/14 | TIME: PM | ROOM: MAT 1 |
LESSON OBJECTIVES: * Pupils will calculate the perimeter of a number of different shapes and express appropriate measurement units. * Pupils will calculate the area of a number of different shapes and express appropriate measurement units. * Pupils will carry out an investigation involving a real life situation. | RESOURCES: * PowerPoint * Projector * Paper * Pens * Worksheet * Tape measures |
LESSON OUTCOMES: * Pupils should be able to define and recognise the difference between area and perimeter. * Pupils should be able to calculate the area and perimeter of a number of different shapes. | HOMEWORK:No homework for this lesson. |
STARTER:(5-10 minutes) | Explain briefly and in simple terms what the area and perimeter of a shape is and get them to individually write down what they would guess the perimeter and the area of the classroom they are in would be. (This is to continue at the end of the lesson when then can actually measure it.) |
MAIN TASK:(30-40 minutes) | Use a PowerPoint presentation to explain further what the perimeter and area of a shape is. Giving examples that they can all join in to work though. Involve every child by using the ‘lolly stick’ method to pick out names to answer questions in the PowerPoint presentation.A worksheet will also be given out with an investigation problem that they can either work on in groups or individually. A discussion about the investigation will follow to address any difficulties they came across and to correct answers together. |
PLENARY:(5-10 minutes) | To end the lesson, as the now should fully understand the what the perimeter and area of a shape are, I would get them to actually measure and calculate the area and perimeter of the classroom that have already estimated using tape measures/metre sticks provided. This can be done in groups to start off with, all measuring a wall each and then the...
