STAGE
TEACHER'S ACTIVITY
LEARNER'S ACTIVITY
LEARNING POINTS
INTRODUCTION
full class session (5mins)
Multiply 1/4 by 3
Pupils respond to the teacher's question.
1/4 x 3 = 3/4
Revision of the previous knowledge of multiplication of a fraction by the whole number.
STEP 1
2mins.
The teacher gives the pupils instructions by asking them to arrange themselves into two groups. Pupils respond to teachers instructions by grouping themselves and choose their leaders and secretary. Developing leadership skills.
STEP 2
5mins.
The teacher shares the materials into the two groups (paper and eraser) and gives them instructions.

  1. Fold the paper horizontally into two equal parts and shade one part using a red marker.

  2. Folding the paper vertically into three equal parts and shade one part using a blue marker.
Pupils identify the materials like paper and carry out the teacher's instructions:
  1. They fold the paper horizontally into 2 equal parts and shade one part.
  2. They fold the other paper vertically into 3 equal parts and shade one part.
Identifying the learning materials for teaching.


Identifying fractions (i.e 1/2)


Identifying fractions (i.e 1/3)
STEP 3
10mins
The teacher asked the pupils to join the two papers together and ask them to state their findings. The pupils joined the two papers together to demonstrate the multiplication of a fraction by fractions.
Achievement of the result by multiplication.
1/2 X 1/3 = 1/6
EVALUATION
7mins
The teacher asked the pupils questions.
  1. 2/3 X 1/3
  2. 1/3 X 1/3
Pupils respond to teachers questions.
Asking the learners questions to assess the achievement of the set objectives.
CONCLUSION
3mins
The teacher asks the pupils to draw simple diagrams to illustrate the multiplication of fractions by fractions.
  1. 1/2 X 1/3

    The teacher asks the pupils to copy it into their exercise book.
The pupils respond to the teacher's question.
Acquiring/ improving writing skills.
ASSIGNMENT Give them other problems to solve. Pupils solve other problems. Improving their level of understanding.
