METRIC LENGTH
Length is a measurement that tells how long or wide something is. 
In the olden days people measure length of objects by using various parts of the body such as arm, foot, palms etc. But all these does not give accurate measurements. 
Today people use instruments like ruler, tape rule, meter tape to accurately measure the length of objects. The standard unit of length measurements s metre (m) 

CONVERSION OF METRIC LENGTH 
10 millimetres (mm) = 1 centimeter (cm) 
10 centimeters = 1 decimetre (dm) 
10dm = 1 meter (m) 
1000mm = 1m
100cm = 1m
1000m = 1 kilometer (km) 

Examples


Solutions 
a. The length of line a is 6cm
b. The length of line b is 2.5cm

 Pupils should be Able to ;
Define length, find the various units of measuring length and also use a ruler to measure length of certain objects.

 Begin the lesson by  showing pupils a video about how length is being measured. 
 
STARTER
The pupils are given a Worksheet which contains different lines, object and animals. Then with the aid of ruler they are to measure their lengths.

ADDITION OF METRIC LENGTH
Addition of metric length is similar to basic addition arithmetic. But note:
10mm = 1cm, 100cm = 1m, 1000m = 1km
EXAMPLES
1. Add 10cm 5mm to 15cm 7mm and  12cm 5mm
  
Solution      
               

2. 5m 15cm 7mm + 4m 48cm 9mm + 6m 65cm 8mm
Solution
              

PLENARY 
Pupils should be able to add various units of lengths together.

STARTER
Start the lesson by asking them questions on units of length and perform basic addition operation.

SUBTRACTION OF METRIC LENGTH
Subtraction of metric length is similar to basic subtraction operation. But note:
10mm = 1cm, 100cm = 1m, 1000m = 1km
EXAMPLES
1. Subtract 5cm 9mm from 9cm 6mm
    Solution
              


PLENARY 
Pupils should be able  to subtract various units of lengths.

STARTER
Begin the lesson by asking them questions on simple subtractions problems.

Solution
     

DIVISION OF METRIC LENGTH
EXAMPLE

2. 26m 75cm 2mm ÷ 8
          


PLENARY 
Pupils should be able to multiply and divide various units of length. 

STARTER
Begin the lesson by doing the first example for them.

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

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
