INTRODUCTION TO CAPACITY MEASURES 
The quantity of liquid a container can hold is known as capacity of the container. For example the amount of water a keg or gallon can hold is the capacity of the keg. 

CONVERSION OF UNITS OF CAPACITY
There are various units for measuring the capacity or volume of liquid. The basic ones are the liters (l) and the Milliliter (ml). 
Great capacities are measured in liters while small capacities are measure in cubic centimeter (cm³) or milliliters
TABLE OF CAPACITY MEASURES
10 milliliters (ml) = 1 centiliter (cl) 
10 cl = 1 deciliter (dl) 
10 dl = 1 liter (l) 
1000 ml = 1 liter
100 cl = 1 liter
1000 l = 1 kiloliter (kl) 

STARTER
Begin the lesson by showing the pupils various containers and asking them which one will hold more liquid.

PLENARY 
Pupils should be able to define capacity and know various units of measuring capacity. 

EXERCISE 
Group work : share them into two groups and give each a 50cl bottle and ask them number of 50cl bottles that will fill one and half litre bottle. 

Seat work: convert 1000l, 2500l, 350l to cl, ml and kl repectively. 
Convert the following to litre
i. 950ml
ii. 100cl
iii.10ml
iv. 2000ml
v. 500cl


Tuesday
Perform Arithmetic operation of adding capacity unit.

ADDITION OF CAPACITY MEASURE
Addition of capacity is similar to the basic addition problems, but when carrying the extra you should remember that:
10ml = 1cl
100cl = 1l
1000ml = 1l
Examples
1. 2cl 6ml + 4cl 15ml
Solution
         cl          ml
          2          6
   +    4          15
          7            1

2. Add 2l 35cl 3ml to 3l 75cl 8ml
Solution 
          l           cl             ml
          2          35            3
     +   3           75           8
          6            11          1

STARTER
Start the lesson by asking them questions on units of capacity and perform basic addition operation.

PLENARY 
Pupils should be able  to add various units of capacity together.

SUBTRACTION OF CAPACITY MEASURES
 Subtraction of capacity is similar to the basic subtraction problems, but when borrowing you should remember that:
10ml = 1cl
100cl = 1l
1000ml = 1l
EXAMPLES
1. 4cl 2ml - 2cl 7ml
Solution
          cl           ml
          4            2
   -      2             7
          1            5    

2. Subtract 7ml 58cl 9ml from 9l 48cl 5ml
Solution 
           l            cl            ml
           9            48           5
   -       7            58          9
           1            89          6   

STARTER
Begin the lesson by doing the first example for them. 

PLENARY 
Pupils should be able  to subtract various units of capacity.

MULTIPLICATION OF CAPACITY MEASURES

EXAMPLE 
1. 6l 27cl 4ml × 6
Solution
         l              cl               ml
         6             27               4
         ×                                 6
       37            64                 4

DIVISION OF CAPACITY MEASURE
EXAMPLE

2. 9l 70cl 4ml ÷ 4



Solution
             l               cl              ml
       4 | 9              70              4
             2              42             6


STARTER
Begin the lesson by doing the first example for them.

PLENARY
Pupils should be able to multiply and divide various units of capacity.

Wealth means riches. And when we have plenty money, we are said to be rich. When we are rich, we are able to acquire wealth in the form of properties such as houses, cars, and expensive clothes.
From the story of Abraham and Job in the Holy Book, we learnt that money or wealth is one of God's gift to man. It is God who is the real owner of wealth and He makes rich those who trust Him and are faithful to Him.. Since God is the real owner of our money and wealth, rich people should see themselves as caretakers of God's property. In other words, money and wealth should not be used for our needs only, but some of it should be used to cater for the needs of the poor and needy, some of it should be used for the upkeep of church and other religious institutions, …

A circle is a perfect round plane. 
Examples of circle are; coins, wheels, rings, tin tops and bottom of buckets.
Parts of a Circle. Centre: the point at the middle of the circle.
Circumference: is the curved outer edge of the circle. (the distance round the circle ). It is the longest part of a circle.
Diameter: the line from a side through the centre to another side. It divides the circle to equal halves. Half of a diameter is a radius.
Radius: is any straight line drawn from the centre to the circumference.
Semi-circle: half of a circle.
Quadrant : is a quarter part of a circle.
Chord: a straight line joining two points on the circumference. ( a chord does not divide a circle into equal halves like the diameter)
