STAR TOPOLOGY

Star topology is a network where all computer are connected at a central point. MESH TOPOLOGY

Mesh topology is a network where all the computer are interconnected with one another. TREE TOPOLOGY

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

Point to point topology is a network where two or more computer are connected to one another direct in a line. ### PRESENTATION

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

1. Revises the previous lesson based on the pupil’s related knowledge or experience.

Pupil’s Activities – Participate actively in the lesson review.

2. Displays charts showing types of network topology.

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

Pupil’s Activities – Identify the setup of each network topology.

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

Pupil’s Activities – Listen to the teacher’s explanation.

5. Gets two or more functional computers to illustration each topology. If available

Pupil’s Activities – Support the teacher in setup each network topology.

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

Pupil’s Activities – Sketch all the network topology.

7. Summarizes the lesson on the board.

Pupil’s Activities – Copy as instructed.

### CONCLUSION

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