**CONTENT OF THE LESSON**

**LESSON 1 – INTRODUCTION**

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

TYPES OF NETWORK TOPOLOGY1. Bus topology

2. Ring topology

3. Star topology

4. Mash topology

5. Tree topology

6. Point to point topology

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

MESH TOPOLOGYMesh 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 TOPOLOGYPoint to point topology is a network where two or more computer are connected to one another direct in a line.

### LESSON 2 – SKETCHING OF STAR, MESH, TREE AND POINT TO POINT TOPOLOGY

**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.

- Next Lesson –
