THEME: MEASUREMENT AND GEOMETRY
PREVIOUS LESSON – SECOND TERM EXAMINATION MATHEMATICS BASIC 4
TOPIC: Estimating Lengths and Comparing Measurements
Lesson One – Introduction to Measurement – Estimate and Measure the Length of Objects
Lesson Two – Conversion of Metres and Kilometres
Lesson Three – Addition and Substation in Metres and Kilometres
Lesson Four – Revision/Test/Quantitative Reasoning
TIME – 40 Minutes each.
By the end of the lesson, pupils should be able to:
1. estimate distances in kilometers and length in meters or centimeters and compare with measurements.
2. convert metres to kilometres.
3. convert kilometres to metres.
4. add and subtract length.
Estimation is the decision made based on the available information or data. That’s, give an approximate or find something close to the correct answer. The object of measurement determines the object’s length (its comparison) and standard to the ruler or measuring tape.
The concept of Estimating Lengths and Comparing Measurements is to help students begin to see that using the same unit of measurement allows us to estimate, and estimation helps us give information to another person.
The teacher will teach the lesson with the aid of:
Meter rule, etc.
Measurement and Estimation are part of our everyday routine. In the class (measuring and drawing of length), at home (measuring cups of rice, etc.), construction site (measuring length, width and height), in the market (yards of cloth materials), etc.
