To measure weight of various objects.
Convert units of weights

Resources

Weighing balance, scale balance, stones, and bottles.

INTRODUCTION TO METRIC WEIGHT
The heaviness of an object tells us what weight is. There are various objects for measuring weight such as the scale balance, the weighing and the spring balance. The basic unit of measuring weight is gram (g). The weight of heavy objects like bags of cement are measured in kilograms while light objects like pen, pencil are weighed in grams.

CONVERSION OF METRIC METRIC WEIGHT
10 milligrams (mg) = 1 centimeter (cg) 
10 centigrams = 1 decigrams (dg) 
10dg = 1 gram (g) 
100cg = 1g
1000g = 1 kilogram (g)
1000kg = 1 ton (t) 
 Pupils should be Able to ;
Define weight, find the various units of measuring weight and with the aid of weight instruments like scale balance measure weights of an object.

STARTER
 Begin the lesson by showing pupils a scale balance then ask to stand on it and measure their weights.

PLENARY
The pupils are given a Worksheet which contains different objects and they are to tick which one they think should be heavier as a result of size and nature of the object.

EXERCISE 
Convert the following weights to gram:
i. 1kg
ii. 5kg
iii. 5mg
iv. 2200cg
Convert the following weights to kg:
i. 2500g
ii. 200g
iii. 1600mg
iv. 200cg


Tuesday

ADDITION OF METRIC WEIGHT
Addition of metric weight is similar to basic addition arithmetic. But note:
10mg = 1cg, 100cg = 1g, 1000g = 1kg, 1000kg = 1 t

EXAMPLES
1. Add 24cg 9mg to 33cg 8mg
  
Solution      
               

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

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

Wednesday
Subtract metric weight

SUBTRACTION OF METRIC WEIGHT
Subtraction of metric weight is similar to basic subtraction operation. But note:
10mg = 1cg, 100cg = 1g, 1000g = 1kg, 1000kg = 1 t
EXAMPLES
1. Subtract 11cg 7mg from 24cg 6mg
    Solution
              

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

STARTER
Begin the lesson by asking them solutions on subtraction problems.

DIVISION OF METRIC WEIGHT
EXAMPLE
2. 9g 84cg 9mg ÷ 7


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

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

CAPACITY MEASURE LESSON PLAN AND LESSON NOTE FOR BOTH PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS

Subject: MATHEMATICS                        Topic: CAPACITY  MEASUREMENT                      Monday   Define capacity measure Convert units of capacity measures Resources  Inside out  Learn   mathematics Book 6, pages   47 containers, buckets, Gallon, bottles.     INTRODUCTION TO CAPACITY MEASURES  The quantity of liquid a container can hold is known as capacity of the container. For example the amount of water a keg or gallon can hold is the capacity of the keg.  CONVERSION OF UNITS OF CAPACITY There are various units for measuring the capacity or volume of liquid. The basic ones are the liters (l) and the Milliliter (ml).  Great capacities are measured in liters while small capacities are measure in cubic centimeter (cm³) or milliliters TABLE OF CAPACITY MEASURES 10 milliliters (ml) = 1 centiliter (cl)  10 cl = 1 deciliter (dl)  10 dl = 1 liter (l)  1000 ml = 1 liter 100 cl = 1 liter 1000 l = 1 kiloliter (kl)  STARTER Beg

AREA AND PERIMETER OF PLANE SHAPES LESSON NOTE AND LESSON PLAN FOR PRIMARY, SECONDARY AND HIGH INSTITUTIONS

W.A.L.A: AREA AND PERIMETER OF PLANE SHAPES  Monday    Area  of rectangles and squares Resources  Content  The area of any given shape is the measure of the extent of a surface. Area is measured in square units. The perimeter of any given shape is the sum of the distance of all the lengths of the sides of that shape. Examples:  Find the area of a rectangle whose length is 6cm and width 4cm. A rectangle is 10m long and 7m wide. What is the area? Solution  Area = L X B         = 6cm X 4cm          = 24 cm² Area = L X B          = 10 m X 7 m          = 70 m² Area of Square  Area of square = L²  or S². where L= length and S = sides Examples: Calculate the area of these squares with the following sides.  7 cm   9 m Solution  Area = L²           = 7cm X 7cm           = 49cm² Area = S²              = 9m  X 9m                      = 81m² Pupils should be Able to ; Find the area rectangles and squares
