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

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. And most cultist will trade off their bad character and act like a very normal person. Well with the slangs below, you'll be able to tell if your son, daughter, friend or the people around you are cultist and if your life is in danger. The first slang on the list is: 1. Jew or 48 This means that someone is not a member of any confraternity. This is use to describe someone that's not a cultist. Example: My roommate is a Jew Or my roommate na 48. 2. In Jew This means that a person or someone is a member of another confraternity. 3. Bella Bella can mean many things to the ladies but most especially in campus, when they say a girl is a Bella it means she's a female member of a specific cult. (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
