UNDERSTANDING TEMPERATURE LESSON NOTE AND PLAN FOR BOTH PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS

Monday 
Understand the meaning of Temperature

Read temperature on thermometer

Book 5, page 308
Cup, water, containers, flashcards



Introduction to Temperature

The degree of hotness or coldness of a body or object is called its Temperature.

To measure temperature we use the thermometer.

There are two main units to measure temperature.
i. the degree Celsius (C)
ii. the degree Fahrenheit (f)

Read temperature on thermometer
To read the temperature, look at the number or mark beside the top of the shaded column.
Note:
When the temperature falls below zero degree Celsius, we use negative number and that means it is getting colder. If the temperature rises and the Celsius is increasing in number from zero, then it is getting warmer. 

STARTER 
Begin the lesson by showing them a video on temperature.
Pupils should be able to understand temperature and its meaning.

Finding temperature of the water 

Get three containers, label the three X,Y and Z
i. pour some cold water from the refrigerator in cup X
ii. pour water from the tap in bowl Y
iii. pour some hot water in bowl Z
iv. note the temperature of each water in terms of hotness, coldness and medium.
v. record your results

STARTER 
Start the lesson by asking them questions on which is colder an ice block or cold water? And also a beans stew and hot water which is hotter?

Pupils should be able to:
Guess the temperature of substances whether hot or cold.

 Changing units of temperature

There are 100 divisions on the Celsius scale and (212 – 32) = 180 divisions on the Fahrenheit
 
The boiling point of water is 100 C or 32F.
This shows that 100C corresponds to 18 divisions. Therefore the ratio of the division in Celsius scale to Fahrenheit is 100 to 180

This is written as:
100:180 or 100/180 reducing to lowest term, we have 5:9 or 5/9

This shows that 1C is 9/5 of F and 1F is 5/9C. it also means that one division of the Celsius scale corresponds to 9/5 division of the Fahrenheit scale; one division of the Fahrenheit scale is 5/9 of the Celsius scale. From this, a formula is obtained for changing from Celsius to Fahrenheit scale as follows.

Example
1. change 20C to F
Solution
Using the formula
F = 9/5 C + 32
F = 9/5 x 20 + 32
F = 36 + 32
F = 68
Therefore, 20C is 68F

STARTER 
Start the lesson by asking them questions on which is colder an ice – block or cold water? And also a beans stew and hot water which is hotter?

Pupils should be able to 
Change or convert units of temperature.

Thursday 
Changing units of temperature. 

Resources

Book 5, page 314

Changing units of temperature. 

To change from Celsius to Fahrenheit we use the formula:
F = 9/5 C + 32

To change from Fahrenheit to Celsius we use the formula:
C = 5/9 (F – 32)

Examples
1. Change 86F to C
Solution
Using the formula
C = 5/9 (C – 32)
C = 5/9 (86 - 32)
C = 5/9 x 54 = 30
 = 30C 
Therefore 86F is 30C

STARTER 
Begin the lesson by doing the first example for them.
Pupils should be able to 
Calculate and convert C to F and vice versa

CAPACITY MEASURE LESSON PLAN AND LESSON NOTE FOR BOTH PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS

Subject: MATHEMATICS                        Topic: CAPACITY  MEASUREMENT                      Monday   Define capacity measure Convert units of capacity measures Resources  Inside out  Learn   mathematics Book 6, pages   47 containers, buckets, Gallon, bottles.     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 Beg

15 CULTIST SLANG YOU SHOULD BE AWARE OF IN OTHER TO SAVE YOUR LIFE

These days cultism is gradually becoming a normal thing in the society. And sometimes its is difficult to tell if someone is a cultist or not.

AREA AND PERIMETER OF PLANE SHAPES LESSON NOTE AND LESSON PLAN FOR PRIMARY, SECONDARY AND HIGH INSTITUTIONS

W.A.L.A: AREA AND PERIMETER OF PLANE SHAPES  Monday    Area  of rectangles and squares Resources  Content  The area of any given shape is the measure of the extent of a surface. Area is measured in square units. The perimeter of any given shape is the sum of the distance of all the lengths of the sides of that shape. Examples:  Find the area of a rectangle whose length is 6cm and width 4cm. A rectangle is 10m long and 7m wide. What is the area? Solution  Area = L X B         = 6cm X 4cm          = 24 cm² Area = L X B          = 10 m X 7 m          = 70 m² Area of Square  Area of square = L²  or S². where L= length and S = sides Examples: Calculate the area of these squares with the following sides.  7 cm   9 m Solution  Area = L²           = 7cm X 7cm           = 49cm² Area = S²              = 9m  X 9m                      = 81m² Pupils should be Able to ; Find the area rectangles and squares
