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.

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 the c…

NUMERATION AND NUMBER NOTATION LESSON PLAN AND LESSON NOTE FOR PRIMARY, SECONDARY AND HIGH SCHOOLS

Guide Days Content  Starter  Plenary Class Activities Homework 

Monday Counting and writing whole numbers up to 1000. 
Counting and writing numbers in units of thousands. 
Writing Numbers in Units of thousands in words. 

Resources Beads, Beans, Number chart, match box  Introduction to numeration and notation  Numeration is defined as the act of counting numbers in words or numerals. Example 1 is one, 2 is two, 10 is ten, 100 is one hundred and 1000 is one thousand while notation is the act or system of using symbols to represent numbers. Example 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and 10
Counting and writing whole numbers up to 1000 Counting and writing whole numbers up to 1000 will be a lot easier if we classify the numbers into three groups: a. 0 - 9 (these are numbers in units)  b. 10 - 99 (these are numbers in tens)  c. 100 - 999 (these are numbers in hundreds)  Example 1 1. Write 5 consecutive numbers after each of these numbers a. 489 b. 334 Solution  a. 489, 490, 491, 492, 493, 494 b. 334, 335, 336, 337, 338, 339
