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.

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

(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
