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)

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.

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.

Changing units of temperature.

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

### DO YOU SEE THESE STRANGE LINES ON YOUR NAILS? DON'T JOKE WITH IT, THIS IS WHAT IT SAYS OF YOUR HEALTH

As I’ve gotten older, those vertical ridges on my nails seem to be getting more and more prominent. That’s when I decided to do some research to see if those ridges meant anything about my health, and if there was anything I could do to get rid of them. What They Mean About Your Health After a lot of research, I did find that there is a small, rare possibility that those ridges can mean an underlying medical condition or possibly even nail trauma. But for most of us, it’s completely normal as we age to see them getting more noticeable, especially if you have dry skin or skin conditions such as eczema. I’m 36, and they’ve only recently started bothering me, but I’m relieved to find that they are most likely harmless. I’m just getting old. But Why Are They There? They’re basically like wrinkles of the nails! As we age, the nail matrix gradually starts to lose it’s effectiveness in some areas, causing your nails to grow out uneven, resulting in what we see as lines or ridges that run from

### DISCOUNT AND COMMISSION MATHEMATICS LESSON PLAN AND LESSON NOTE FOR PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS

Monday   Meaning of Discount  Finding cost and cash price on discounted goods Resources  Inside out  Learn   mathematics Book 6, page  125  items like; currency note Milo, biscuits, books, pencils, school bag   Meaning of Discount Discount is a reduction in the price of an article. It is often a certain percentage of the actual price of the article. Examples 1. A table clock cost \$200, and a 10% discount is given for paying cash. What is the cash price? Solution The discount = 10% of \$200 =   10     x 200= 20 100 So Cash price = original price – discount                                                             Amount   =    \$200 –  \$20 = \$180  2. The selling price of a shirt is \$900. The trader gives 5% discount for cash. How much is the buyer paying. Solution The discount = 5% of \$900 = \$45 So Cash price = original price – discount amount                         = \$900 – \$45 = \$855 Begin the lesson by showing them an image of a market where buying and selling is taking place, then

### METRIC WEIGHT LESSON PLAN AND LESSON NOTE FOR PRIMARY, SECONDARY AND HIGH SCHOOLS

SUBJECT: MATHEMATICS                W.A.L.A:  METRIC WEIGHT                                                                 Day s W.A..L.T:  Content  Plenary  Starter  Task  Homework  Monday   To measure weight of various objects. Convert units of weights Resources  Inside out  Learn   mathematics Book 6, page  42 Weighing balance, scale balance, stones, and bottles. INTRODUCTION TO METRIC WEIGHT The heaviness of an object tells us what weight is. There are various objects for measuring weight such as the scale balance, the weighing and the spring balance. The basic unit of measuring weight is gram (g). The weight of heavy objects like bags of cement are measured in kilograms while light objects like pen, pencil are weighed in grams. CONVERSION OF METRIC METRIC WEIGHT 10 milligrams (mg) = 1 centimeter (cg)  10 centigrams = 1 decigrams (dg)  10dg = 1 gram (g)  100cg = 1g 1000g = 1 kilogram (g) 1000kg = 1 ton (t)   Pupils should be Able to ; Define weight, find the various units of measu
