 PRESENTATION TEACHER’S ACTIVITY PUPIL’S ACTIVITY STEP 1MENTAL MATHS The teacher begins the lesson with some mental calculationsCalculateIf I count in 50s, give me the number before1 400  2 50  3 150  4 250  5 550  6 2507 1008 4509 500 10 200 Pupils respond and participate STEP 2CONCEPTDEVELOPMENT The teacher• Draws the patterns given in the table below on your board before the lesson starts. Youwill need to refer to these drawings when you explain the different kinds of patterns.You don’t have to write the explanations – you will talk about these.• Uses the table below, which provides three different types of patterns, to teach learners how to- Identify- Describe- Extend and- Develop their own patterns.CLASS ACTIVITYThe teacher Instructs the learners:Make your own pattern with a different shape and your own colours.Describe the pattern. What will the next three shapes look like? Draw them.For example:Describe the pattern. (A square with a circle inside. The circle is at the top left, topright, bottom right.)What will the next three shapes look like? (The circle will be at the bottom left, thentop left, then top right.)Draw them. Pupils pay attention and participate STEP 3CLASS-WORK 2 Use any of these shapes to make two different patterns. Describe your patterns.You don’t have to use all the shapes in your two patterns. Pupils attempt their class work STEP 4HOME-WORK 1 Design and draw your own pattern using circles, squares and triangles.2 Describe the pattern. Pupils attempt their class work STEP 5SUMMARY The teacher summarizes by reminding the pupils how to extend and develop patterns. She marks their class works, makes corrections where necessary and commends them positively

PERIOD 4: Assessments

 PRESENTATION TEACHER’S ACTIVITY PUPIL’S ACTIVITY STEP 1ORALASSESSMENTS The teacher asks questions on geometric patterns Pupils respond and participate STEP 2DISCUSSION The teacher discusses all the methods used by some learners in the oral assessments(some of the questions are solved on the board by the learners) and addresses any misconceptions that may have risen Pupils pay attention and participate STEP 3WRITTEN ASSESSMENTS 1. Draw the next shape in this pattern: 2 Draw and extend a pattern in which the sizes of the shapes increase.Learners’ answers will vary. 3 Make your own pattern using circles and squares. 4 Use three squares to draw a pattern. The size of the squares need to change in a regular way. Pupils attempt their class work STEP 4SUMMARY The teacher marks the written assessments, corrects were necessary and commends the pupils

PERIOD 5: Weekly Test/consolidations

TEACHER’S ACTIVITY: The teacher revises all the concepts treated from period 1-4 and gives the pupils follow through exercises, quiz and tests. She marks the exercises, makes corrections and commends the pupils positively.

PUPIL’S ACTIVITY: The pupils work on the worksheets and exercises given by the teacher individually

CONSOLIDATION

1 Extend the following pattern:

1. Describe this pattern.

1. Create a pattern using circles that increase in size

4 Create a pattern with 3 squares. The squares should decrease in size.
