Lesson plan 1

1. Lesson Plan Information

Subject/Course: Mathematics

Name:

Grade Level: Sixth

Date: Time:

Topic: Fractions

Length of Period: 1hr 30 minutes

Standard: Pennsylvania’s Common Core State Standard CC.2.3.2.A.2 for Mathematics

2. Lesson objective(s)

Expectation(s) (Directly from The State Curriculum):

i. Understanding of fractions (parts of a fraction)

ii. Understand basic operations with fractions

· Addition

· Subtractions

· Division

· Multiplication

iii. Ability to perform operations with fractions

Learning Skills (Where applicable):

· Creative thinking

· Critical analysis

3. Learning Context

A. The Learners

Sixth grade learners have basic knowledge on fractions, how to perform basic operations on fractions.

To accommodate diversity (learning), different methods of instructions will be used. The primary method of instructions will be guidance notes to ensure challenged learners are carried along.

B. Learning Environment

A learner-centered classroom environment is to be used. Classroom practices will be aimed at discovering what the students think, their misconceptions, and help students readjust their ideas and to create robust ideas on mathematical concepts.

C. Resources/Materials

· Guidance notes

· Chalkboard and chalk

· Writing materials for students

4. Teaching/Learning Strategies

INTRODUCTION

Lesson will be introduced by reflecting on students understanding of fraction, through oral questions. The knowledge students have will inform the background information to be covered on fractions. The oral questions will be asked by the teacher on random students. The questions will be based on prior knowledge from lower grade curriculum requirements.

MIDDLE:

The lesson will then progress to cover the course requirements for sixth grade students. New concepts will be taught through the guided notes, with students expected to make notes on the spaces provided.

Other methods that will be used in learning include;

· Integration of technology. In addition to calculations, calculators and computers will be used by students.

· The learning process will be done through a problem-based approach. The teacher will use problem to help students understand how to perform the various operations with fractions. The mathematical problem will be written on the board, and then solved by engaging the students in the process to solve it.

· After, a significant number of problems are solved; the class will be divided into groups and given problems to tackle them as a group.

CONCLUSION: How will I conclude the lesson?

Lastly, the lesson will be completed with an individual problem. A problem will be given for each student to complete individually. The problem will then be marked by the teacher instantly. The problem will be assessed not just on the correctness of the problem, but also the time taken to complete the problem.

5. Diversity integration

First, the class setting and the sitting arrangement will be done to ensure every student is comfortable based on their physical capabilities. Second, sitting arrangement will be done to promote integration of ethnicity and racial diversity and learning capabilities, this will also be promoted in the groups. Lastly, various learning and teaching methods will be used as discussed earlier so as to ensure inclusivity and learning of every student.

Lesson plan 2

Subject/Course: Mathematics

Name:

Grade Level: twelfth

Date: Time:

Topic: Fractions

Length of Period: 1hr 30 minutes

Standard: Pennsylvania’s Common Core State Standard CC.2.3.2.A.2 for Mathematics

2. Lesson objective(s)

Expectation(s) (Directly from The State Curriculum):

By the end of the course, students are expected to;

· Learn to connect to ideas of ratio and rate and division and multiplication.

· Complete their understanding of the division of fractions, the system of rational numbers, and negative numbers.

· Learn to write equations and expressions. Students will be able to write equations to represent a given situation. As such, students will understand the solutions of an equation and the variables that make an equation true.

· Develop understanding of statistics. Students will understand that the distribution of data might not have a definite center thus the methods of measurements can provide varying values. Students will also be able to measure variability of a given piece of data to describe it.

Learning Skills

· Creative thinking

· Critical analysis

· Listening and observation

· Knowledge presentation

3. Learning Context

A. The Learners

At the 12th grade, students have adequate understanding of fractions as to understand the various components of a fraction, how to solve expressions, and such concepts as BODMAS (Bracket of Division Multiplication Addition and Subtraction). At this level, the students are able to work with fractions to find unknown values (algebra). 12th grade students are developed critical and creative thinking skills.

To ensure inclusion of all the learners, different methods of instruction and teaching strategies will be used. These include;

a. Strategies

· Guided notes

· Implementation of universal design for learning

· Adoption of a strong behavior management plan

b. Instruction methods

· Direct instruction

· Questions and answer

· Practice

· Discussion

· Inquiry

B. Learning Environment

The teacher will use proactive strategies to create and maintain a positive learning environment that accommodates all students through;

· Establishment and utilization of ground rules

· Prioritize questions than answers

· Provide and promote opportunities for students to practice

· Learning will be incorporated with real every day activities

· The sitting arrangement within the classroom will be done to promote integration

C. Resources/Materials

· Students writing materials

· Guided notes

· Chalkboard and chalk

· Curriculum prescribed text.

Students will present their findings to the class. 2. In groups, students will graph population growth and predict future trends using exponential functions (Ormond 2010). A data set is available at: http://serc.carleton.edu/files/quantskills/events/NAGT02/quantskillsworldpop.pdf. Students will discuss the political and environmental implications of their findings. 3.

Product and How Children Learn The product reflects the way that only certain children can learn mathematics. Some children truly can understand mathematical concepts by having them presented on a page and through repetition. Other children can readily learn and master mathematical concepts through

Learning style preferences are the method in which, and the circumstances under which, learners most competently and successfully recognize, process, store, and recall what they are trying to learn. Knowing the students' learning style preferences can aide in the development of the most effective teaching approaches. The gender-related differences in math achievement have been attributed to a number of variables, most notably, differential course taking patterns and exposure to math,

new California Mathematics Framework. Specifically it will discuss how these changes affect teaching math in grades 6-12. The new California Mathematics Framework (CMF) provides teachers with techniques to teach mathematics in the classroom, and it has been changed significantly from previous frameworks. The framework's changes will certainly alter how many teachers teach in the classroom, and some of the changes may be difficult to implement. To begin with, the framework

Students should be able to reflect on the process of problem solving. Reasoning and Proof Students should recognize that proofs are a fundamental aspect of mathematics. Within that understanding, they should develop the ability to select and use various types of mathematical reasoning. Communication The standard calls for students to communicate their mathematical thinking in a coherent and clear way to teachers, peers, and others. Students should be able to express their ideas
