LESSON PLAN Date: 23 October 2012 (Tuesday) Time: 2. 30p. m until 3. 30 p. m. Class: 5 Science 1 Number of Pupils: 29 Subject: Mathematics Topic: Bearings Learning Area: Bearings Previous Knowledge: The students have learnt the four main compass directions in Geography Subject. Thinking Skills: Identifying, Calculating and Drawing. Teaching-learning Resources: Manila Card. Learning ObjectivesPupils will be taught to… | Teaching and Learning Activities| Learning OutcomesPupils will be able to … Remarks| 1 Understand the concept of bearing. | Introduce the eight main compass directions. | Draw and label the eight main compass directions: a) north, south, east, west, b) north-east, north-west, south-east, south west. | Vocabulary north-eastsouth-eastnorth-westsouth-westcompass anglebearing| 2 Use the concept of bearing. | 1 Show and calculate the compass angle of any direction. Examples :State the bearing of point P. Answer : 48? Answer : 180? + 60? 240? Answer : 180? – 40? = 140? Answer : 270? + 20? = 290? Answer : The bearing of A from B is 065?. The bearing of B from A is 245?. 2 Discuss the use of bearing in real life situations. For example, in map reading and navigation. Example : In Diagram 8, P, Q and R are three points on a horizontal plane. R lies to the east of P. The bearing of Q from P is 072?. The bearing of R from Q is A 162? B 198? C 288? D 342? | 1 State the compass angle of any compass direction. Draw a diagram which shows the direction of B to A given the bearing of B from A. 3 State the bearing of point A from point B based on the given information. 4 Solve problems involving bearings. | Point to noteCompass angle and bearing are written in three-digit form, from 000? to 360?. They are measured in a clockwise direction from north. Due north is considered as bearing 000?. For cases involvingdegrees and minutes, state in degrees up to one decimal place. |
