Monday 
Meaning of circle and  parts of a circle

Resources 
a cardboard with circle drawn on it  

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)

Sector: is a region between two radii and the circumference.

Begin the lesson by drawing a circle on the board and asking them what shape it is.


Pupils should be able to mention at least 4 parts of a circle then give explanation on them. 


Tuesday
Finding the Area of circle 
 
The area of a circle is found by using the formula πr² ,  where π is pi with value as 22/ 7  or 3.142 and where r is the radius of the circle. 

Example: 
1. Find the area of the circle with radius 7cm. Take π a 22/7
Solution 
Area = πr² = π  X r X r
                   = ( 22/7 X 7 X 7 ) cm²
                                 = 154cm²
2. Find the area of a circle of diameter 7cm. Take pi as 22/7 
solution 
radius is half of a diameter 7/2cm = 3  cm 
                area = πr² = π X r X r
            = (   22/7 X  3.5  X  3. 5) cm²
                 = 38.5 cm²

Start the lesson by stating the formula for finding the area of the circle

Pupils should be able  to calculate the area of the shaded portion of the shape given



Wednesday
Finding the radius of a circle. 

If you are required to find the radius of a circle when the area and pi are given, the rule is ; change the formula for finding the area.
Area = πr²  ( divide both sides by  π )
     A = πr²          
      
   Radius  =   (A/π)¹/² (square root both sides) 

Example : find the radius of a circle whose area is 154 cm2 . takes π as 22/7
Radius =   (A/π)¹/²
 Radius =  (154/3.142)¹/²
             
             = 7cm²

Begin the lesson by doing the first example for them.

Pupils should be able to calculate the area of the given shape correctly.


Thursday 
Finding the area of semi- circle

Example :  find the area of the semi - circle with radius 7cm.Take π as 22/7.

Solution :
Area of semi- circle =  πr²/2   
= (   22/7 X 7  X 7  )/2 cm²
                        =19.25 cm²

Begin the lesson by doing the first example for them.

Pupils should be able to calculate the area of the given shape correctly.

PEOPLE AND LOVE OF MONEY (LESSON NOTE AND LESSON PLAN)

SUBJECT: RELIGIOUS EDUCATION
TOPIC: PEOPLE AND LOVE OF MONEY
SUBTOPIC: UNDERSTAND THE USE OF MONEY AND WEALTH
.
Money is the currency that is used to pay for services and goods. We also use money to buy things that we need.
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, …
