**CONTENT OF THE LESSON**

**LESSON 1 â€“ INTRODUCTION**

**MEANING OF NETWORK TOPOLOGY**

Network topology is the arrangement and description of a computer network.

Â

TYPES OF NETWORK TOPOLOGYÂThe types of computer network are as follows:

Â

1. Bus topology

2. Ring topology

3. Star topology

Â

**1. BUS TOPOLOGYÂ **

Bus topology is a type of network where all the computers are connected to a single cable.

Â

Â

Â

2. RING TOPOLOGYÂRing topology is a type of network where Â all computer are connected to create a circular data path.

Â

Â

3. STAR TOPOLOGYÂStar topology is a network where all computer are connected at a central point.

Â

Â

3. MESH TOPOLOGYMesh topology is a network where all the computer are interconnected with one another.

Â

Â

5. TREE TOPOLOGYÂ

Tree topology is a network where all the computers are connected like a branches of a tree.

Â

Â

6. POINT TO POINT TOPOLOGYÂPoint to point topology is a network where two or more computer are connected to one another direct in a line.

Â

Â

Â

**LESSON 2 â€“ SKETCHING OF BUS AND RING TOPOLOGY**

Teacher organizes pupils in groups or pairs depending on the size of the class to sketch and describe the above computer network on cardboard.

Â

**LESSON 3 â€“ REVISION AND WEEKLY ASSESSMENT (TEST)**

Â

Â

**PRESENTATION**

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

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

2. Organizes the pupils in groups or pair depending on the size of the class.

3. Displays charts showing types of network topology.

Â

4. Lets pupils different each of the network based on the arrangement.

Pupilâ€™s Activities â€“ Identify the setup of each network topology.

5. Uses the chart to introduce and explain each type of topology.

Pupilâ€™s Activities â€“ Listen to the teacherâ€™s explanation.

6. Gets two or more functional computers to illustration each topology.

Pupilâ€™s Activities â€“ Support the teacher in setup each network topology.

7. Sketch and ask pupils to sketch each network topology.

Pupilâ€™s Activities â€“ Sketch all the network topology.

8. Summarizes the lessons on the board with appropriate lesson evaluation.

Pupilâ€™s Activities â€“ Participate act actively in the summary of the lesson by responding correctly to questions and write as instructed.

Â

Â

**CONCLUSION**

- To conclude the lesson for the week, the teacher revises the entire lesson and links it to the following weekâ€™s lesson.

- Next Lesson â€“Â
