Observing Math Instruction

The observation lesson gives students an opportunity to incorporate different modes of learning such as tactile, visual and audio. This lesson plan breaks the monotony of the classroom instruction by incorporating other instructional devices like the computer and projector. It also allows students to learn both individually and in groups. This lesson will allow the impaired students to use their own senses. Their senses become highly developed, and they work on the ones they have shown deficiencies in. The lesson plan will also appeal to those with ADHD because of its stimulating and interactive nature. EEI (ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS OF INSTRUCTION) - LESSON PLAN ELEMENTS REQUIRED: Objective Primary: For students to understand that one whole turn is 3600, three quarters turn is 2700, half a turn is 1800 and a quarter turn is 900 this knowledge then gets applied while measuring angles using a protractor. Anticipatory Set Explain to students what the process for observation and learning will be for the measuring of angles. Lesson will commence with finding out what the students know about the angles. This gets followed by individual observation of how the teacher and the instructor on the projector turn. This will get done step by step until all angles are covered. Teacher then guides the students to measure the angles on photographs provided with a protractor. The lesson will sum up through questions that will test the understanding of the students and make clarifications. Introduction Introduce the lesson through an interactive session between the students and teacher. Explain to the students that one complete turn is four right angles. Ask the students to stand up and face North. Instruct them on the direction to face and face that way. Tell them to follow your instruction and to copy. Projector Observation Students watch on the projector and observe how the instructor turns making different turns to indicate different angles. This gets done step by step to allow students to emulate what the instructor is doing and understand which angle the turn indicates. Independent Practice And group discussion Students will answer various questions assigned by the teacher to be answered during the observation. For example, how many degrees are; the first turn, second turn, third turn, fourth turn and fifth turn? After this, in small groups the students will pool knowledge gathered from the observation to determine what the measurement of angles in every turn was. Measuring angles using protractor Show a protractor on the projector and explain to the students what it is and what it gets used for which is for measuring and drawing angles. Expound on the two measuring scales. Explain to the students that it has an inner scale and an outer one and both scales begin at 0° and end at 180°, and gets labeled in intervals of 10°. Point out the zero line. This joins the centre of the protractor to 0° on both sides. Show the students how to measure one angle, explaining to them what to do. Let the student proceed to measure angles. Evaluation *Assessment/Rubrics Authentic assessment will be in the form of question and answer where the teacher will clarify misconceptions of the students. Formative assessment gets done during the learning process as the teacher provides information to be used as feedback. A Summative Assessment gets used at the conclusion of the
