# 2-dimensional Shapes and 3-Dimensional Shapes

MATHEMATICS

THEME: Mensuration and Geometry

TOPIC: Shapes

PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVES

By the end of the lesson, the pupils should have attained the following objectives (cognitive, affective and psychomotor):

1. name two and three dimensional shapes;

1. they should be able to draw line of symmetry;

1. identify and appreciate 3 – dimensional shapes;

1. solve quantitative aptitude problems relating to polygon.

ENTRY BEHAVIOR

The pupils are required to already have taught and learned types of triangles and quadrilateral.

INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS

The teacher will teach the lesson with the aid of charts of two and three dimensional figures.

METHOD OF TEACHING

MAIN REFERENCE MATERIALS

1. Prime Mathematics book 6 (PMB 296);

1. New Method Mathematics book 6 (NMM 213).

CONTENT OF THE LESSON/LESSON NOTE

LESSON 1

PERIOD:

DATE:

TIME:

• INTRODUCTION 2 – DIMENSIONAL SHAPES NOT EXCEEDING OCTAGON

2 – Dimensional shapes have length and width (breadth). Polygons are 2-dimensional shapes. Polygons have a straight sides. They are made of straight lines, and the shape is “closed” (all the lines connect up).

The name of each shape tells you the number of sides it has.

• TYPES OF POLYGONS

A regular polygon has all angles equal and all sides equal, otherwise it is irregular.

LESSON 2

PERIOD:

DATE:

TIME:

• CONTENT – TRIANGLE AND QUADRILATERAL

Triangle

Triangle is a three sided figure (shape). It is classified by number of sides and size of angles or both.

Quadrilateral is four – sided figure (shape). There are special types of quadrilateral.

LESSON EVALUATION
1. ___________ is a three sided figure. a. Circle b. Pentagon c. Rectangle d. Triangle
2. ___________ is a four sided figure. a. Circle b. Pentagon c. Rectangle d. Triangle
3. ___________ has an equal sides and angles. a. Square b. Rectangle c. Kite d. triangle
4. Draw the lines of symmetry on triangles and rectangles.
5. Mention the number of lines of symmetry of triangles and rectangles.

LESSON 3

PERIOD:

DATE:

TIME:

• CONTENT – Pentagon means 5 sides, hexagon means 6, heptagon means 7 and octagon means 8. The shape below is pentagon. It has five sides.

Pentagon                       Hexagon

Heptagon                    Octagon

LESSON EVALUATION
1. Draw the lines of symmetry each of the above figures.

2. Mention the number of lines of symmetry of each figures above.

3. Complete the table below:

LESSON 4

PERIOD:

DATE:

TIME:

• CONTENT –  3 – DIMENSIONAL SHAPES

3 – Dimensional shapes have height, width and depth.

Examples are cube, cuboid, cylinder, sphere, cone, triangular prism, square – base pyramid, and regular tetrahedron.

Further exercise will be taken from the listed reference materials.

PRESENTATION

To deliver the lesson, the teacher adopts the following steps:

• To introduce the lesson, the teacher revises the previous lesson- time. Based on this, he/she asks the pupils some questions;

• Guides the pupils to recall the names and features of given shapes;

• Pupils Activities – Identify a given plane shapes in terms of its name and essential features e.g. square, rectangle, triangle, rhombus, parallelograms etc.

• Guides pupils to identify lines of symmetry, number of sides, number of angles, etc.

• Pupils Activities – Using paper cut outs to determine the number of lines of symmetry, number of angles and number of sides.

• Guides pupils relate 3 – Dimensional to the world as around them;

• Pupils Activities – Identify and appreciate 3 – dimensional shapes e.g. Cube, cone, triangular, prison i.e. Closed or solid object. Examples of cube – sugar, maggi, cone – ice cream, cuboid – boxes, etc.

• Evaluation

CONCLUSION

• To conclude the lesson for the week, the teacher revises the entire lesson and links it to the following week’s lesson (scale drawing).
