element
Intellectual Teacher will explain the concept of first principles percentage method to students, utilising
Quality the appropriate language to explain mathematical concepts. It is important to highlight key
terms and define them to students. Students have the ability to work cooperatively in pairs/
small groups and thus present their findings to their class.
Quality By allowing students to work in pairs/small groups, it promotes the idea of building positive
Learning relationships with other students. It teaches students how to work together for a common
Environment purpose. Through discussion and presentation, students enter unknown territory, allowing
them to widen their circle of comfort. Students are able to discuss and reconfirm ideas with
other students before speaking to the entire class. This allows for all students to engage into
classwork and public speaking as no student is put on the spot.

Significance Students are able to learn about other concepts outside of mathematics. They learn about
the origin and the concept of how percentages came about.

Introduce percentages
Ask students if they know what the true definition of
percentages is or whether they know where it comes from? Storytelling
Allow students time to think and discuss their conclusions.
Promote class discussion
Continue to explain that it comes from the Latin word
“percent”, meaning “by the hundred”. Tell students the “old Student:
tale” of how the word percent came about. Students will Answer verbal questions
actively listen in class.
Class discussion
Take the students back to the times when the church and
superstitions would rule the people’s everyday lives. Ask Actively listen in class
students what absurd superstitions they have heard of.
Explain that 800years ago, any associations with money and
maths meant that you will be “doomed in hell”. Bantering for
goods was the only way to obtain everyday necessities. To
fight back this superstition, merchants came together an
invented a new word and symbol to cancel out any
associations with the devil. This was the gateway to money,
today.

Reflection
What have I learned about the teaching and learning process when preparing this lesson?
I found that it is important to plan for the entire topic and not for this lesson alone. It was
difficult to figure out what content should be taught and when. This made it hard to plan
and prepare this lesson. Time management was also an issue as it is hard to predict student
outcomes, so I resolved the issue with over prepping. Promoting students to work
collaboratively was done easier than expected, since students are able to discuss their
findings with other students and the class. The learning and teaching process for both
students and teacher can be highly interactive and engaging when moving away from a
traditional approach.

How am I measuring the outcomes of this lesson?

Reflection
What have I learned about the teaching and learning process when preparing this lesson?
It was difficult to figure out skills based activities that were more engaging to students. This
required a lot of time, planning and preparation. Time management of the class was also an
issue because it is hard to monitor time duration. To overcome this, extra work has been
planned in case students finish work a lot earlier than expected. It was important that this
lesson plan was made flexible for the students.

Every group is given a budget of $3,000 “class dollars”. Paper
Laptops/computers
Explain the rules of the “shopping” game and how to play.

The aim of the game is to furnish a bedroom. Students


have all received equal amounts of class dollars in their
groups, and have the ability to control their spending.

Every student must be assigned a role, as follows:


1. Group Leader
2. Scribe
3. Presenter
4. Researcher

The teacher is holding a sale and will be selling a number


of miscellaneous objects that could be used to furnish a
bedroom. It is up to the student what they would like to
purchase and how they would furnish their own bedroom.
Remember, if students are purchasing big ticket items
they may not be able to purchase other items. At the end
of the class, each group with present and tell the class
what they have bought and why. And if they had any
difficulties furnishing the room with the given budget.

Note that students must check their calculations with the


teacher first before finalising a purchase. Students are
only allowed to select items from ikea.com/au/en/ and
jbhifi.com.au/. A discount sheet will be given to all groups
to clarify the discount for each category.

Reflection
What have I learned about the teaching and learning process when preparing this
lesson?
The teaching and learning process can be quite fun and interesting for both teacher
and students when planned properly. I enjoyed incorporating a team building
activity in this lesson as it is highly beneficial for students. I was, however, worried
that the shopping game would not work for the given time as group work and class
discussion take up a lot of the lesson time.
