Teacher starts the lesson by giving clues on what they are going to learn. (E.g. Things that occur when we divide something)
Pupils are expected to guess the lesson’s topic.
Later, teacher shows the lesson’s topic to the pupils.
Teacher explains that they are going to learn about fractions by using everyday objects around them.
Teacher starts to teach about fractions. (Proper, Equivalent)
Teacher appoints pupils to complete the activities in the lesson.
Rationale This activity is important to pupils as fractions are the first place in pupils' experiences where number represents something other than counting. Therefore, in order to make the pupils engage in the learning process, all the slides used colourful colour and images to arouse the pupils' interest in Fraction. It indirectly help pupils in constructing ideas of fractional parts of the whole and its equal size portions. In addition, the activities that have various styles and approaches to be answered are strategies to show that fraction parts should be explored using creative ways compared the conservative ways. By giving pupils the opportunities to apply the content taught on their own, it helps them to learn better through mistakes that might occur. Besides it is a hands on activity rather just a terminology.
Furthermore, pupils are given ideas that Proper Fraction is a fraction where the numerator is less than the denominator and therefore the value is less than one. It is portrayed by the questions given. Finally by letting the pupils write the answer, they will be exposed to correct way of writing fraction numbers. Finally by using these activities, it is hopeful to strengthen the pupils' abilities in solving problems involving Fractions as they are engage in both Proper and Equivalent Fractions. From the basic knowledge about Fractions; Proper Fractions, pupils will be exposed to Fractions with the same value but expressed in different numerators and denominators; Equivalent Fractions. Moreover this activity can help teacher to determine whether pupils have grasped the previous knowledge (Proper Fractions)
