### 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

Begin the lesson by asking the pupils to measure the length and breadth of the squares and rectangles

Tuesday
Area of triangle

The formula for finding area of triangle is 1/2 b x h. Where b is base and h is height of the triangle.

Examples : find the area of the following triangles.

Find the area of a triangle with base of 12m and height of 9 m.
Solution
Area = 1/2 bh
=   1/2 X b X h
=   1/2 X 8cm X 6 cm
= 24cm²

Area of Circle
Area = 1/2  bh
=   X b X h
=   X 12cm X 9 cm
= 54cm 2

Pupils should be Able to
Find the area of triangle

Begin the lesson by asking them to;
identify a triangle
Then tell them to measure the shapes in centimetres and meters.

Wednesday
Perimeter of squares and rectangles

Examples : find the perimeter of these shapes.
A rectangle with length of 8cm and breadth of 5cm.
A square of sides 9m each.
Solution
Perimeter= L+ B + L + B
= 8cm + 5cm + 8cm + 5cm
=26cm
OR Perimeter =  2 ( L+ B )
= 2 ( 8cm + 5cm)
= 2 X 13cm
= 26cm
Perimeter of square  = L + L + L + L
=  9m + 9m + 9m +9m
= 36m
OR       Perimeter of square= 4 L
= 4 X 9m
= 36m

Pupils should be Able to ;
State the formulae for finding perimeter of rectangle and square
Begin the lesson by measuring the length of the shapes to be used.

Thursday
Perimeter of triangles

EXAMPLES: find the perimeter of the following shapes with sides :6cm            9cm             5m

and        8cm             4m          7m
Solution
Perimeter = 6cm + 9cm + 8cm
= 23cm

Perimeter =  5m + 4m + 7m + 6 m
=22m

Pupils should be Able to ; calculate the perimeter of any given shapes

Begin the lesson by measuring the sides of the various shapes given.

1. You can try out the parcc grade 6 mathematics practice test to check yourself up. You can know your limits from different exams. They are providing standard question patterns.

### 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

### 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.

(Name of cult withheld for personal reasons) 4. Sticker You should be very attentive because most cultist use words that you'll think doesn'

### ESTIMATION AND APPROXIMATION MATHEMATICS LESSON NOTE AND PLAN FOR BOTH PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL

Monday   Understand estimation and approximation Round whole numbers to the nearest ten Resources  Inside out  mathematics Book 4, page  181 and 6 page 106 flashcards,  beads, jelly bean, glass jar,  currency note biscuits, books, pencils. Introduction to estimation and approximation Estimation is a way of saying a sum is nearly about a figure or find something close to the correct answer. If we write 99, we say that it is nearly or about 100. Another word for estimation is approximation.  this sign means “approximately equal to”. When rounding numbers, do notice the following: a. digits that are less than 5 are rounded down, I.e replaced by zero. b. digits that are 5 or greater than 5 are rounded up. i.e 1 added to the original digit. Rounding whole Numbers to the Nearest Ten  When rounding whole numbers to the nearest ten, simply round up or down the last whole number Note a. numbers like 20, 30,40,90, 100 200, 300, 800, 1000, 2000 b. numbers like 21, 22, 23, 24, are all rounded down
