To help the students become independent, autonomous learners, confident and capable of learning on their own.
To develop the studentâ€™s interest in mathematics to increase their critical thinking ability and pursue careers in mathematics/engineering to help develop the economy around 21 st century technology.
The students will be able to Build and manipulate representations of a two dimensional figure into a three-dimensional one and perceive an object from different perspectives.
The teacher will apply the Think-Pair-Share strategy in the classroom, to ensure that students will be able to retain or comprehend the discussions. By allowing students to partner with another classmates after the discussion to solve problems that will be provided to them and share it to one another.
After satisfying all the requirements for classroom lecture, the teacher will engage the students in laboratory tasks (this doesnâ€™t mean theyâ€™ll have to go to a laboratory), to draw the figures that the teacher has discussed like squares, triangles, trapezoids etc. based on the specifications that the teacher will provide.
The students must satisfy the specifications because their output will be used for the succeeding activity.
After all the required figures are drawn and have satisfied the teacher, the students will form a group to start constructing a 3Dimensional figure. The figures that they have drawn which forms a 2 Dimensional figure will be used to construct the 3D figures. This can be achieved through cooperation and collaboration of all the members in the group.
Engaged learners are responsible for their own learning.
These students are self-regulated and able to define their own learning goals and evaluate their own achievement.
Students teach others interactively and interact generatively with their teacher and peers. This allows for co-construction of knowledge, which promotes engaged learning that is problem-, project-, and goal-based.
Engage students in cooperative learning. In this type of environment students help students in small group settings but still have some teacher assistance. This can serve as a step in the process of decreasing the scaffolds provided by the educator and needed by students.
The teacher will act as an expert that will provide models for the activity, gives the learner advices and examples, guides the student in practice and then tapers off support until the student can do the task alone.
The teacher will demonstrate to the class, on how to correctly form the 3 Dimensional Figure out of the 2-Dimensional ones i.e forming a pyramid out of Isosceles triangles and a square.
Prior to the start of the studentâ€™s task, the teacher will conduct a brief recap on the mathematical formula and computations in connection to the activity.
The following websites listed below, served as the teacherâ€™s internet resources which will reinforce the classroom lesson in Plane and Solid Geometry.
