Full lesson | Create for a teacher a set of content for giving a lesson, beginning with the lesson plan. Each new block of materials must begin with an H1 heading (other subheaders must be H2, H3, etc). When you describe required pictures, write those descriptions in curly brackets, for example: {A picture of a triangle} |

Step # | Step Title | Length | Details |
---|---|---|---|

1 | Introduction | 2 minutes | Teacher greets students and reads a fun math fact out loud. Teacher explains that the lesson will be about many other fun facts related to math |

2 | Hand out and fill in Cards | 10 minutes | Teacher hands out math fact cards to each student and instructs that each student should fill in the blank with an answer. Students are encouraged to complete these independently |

3 | Peer Discussion | 5 minutes | After filling out the math fact cards, students should find a partner and discuss their answers. The teacher calls on various partnerships to share their answers with the class |

4 | Fun fact presentation | 5 minutes | Ask students to share fun fact they gathered during their research on a specific mathematical principle. This would allow everyone to learn new fun facts from each other |

5 | Homework | 5 minutes | The teacher hands out worksheets to help students practice what they learnt in class today. The instructions should be clearly defined and also mention how the homework will be checked without asking any student to present it in front of the class |

Note: Step 6 is an optional activity that can be used to fill extra time if necessary.

| 6 | Optional Activity | 3 minutes | The teacher poses a math riddle or logic puzzle for the students to solve. Students work individually or in small groups to find the answer. The teacher then calls on various individuals or groups to share their solutions |

- The homework will be checked without any student presenting it in class
- The homework may include math problems related to the fun facts discussed in class

- The teacher concludes the lesson with a closing statement about the importance of math and how fun it can be to find interesting facts about mathematics.

- The teacher assesses students' understanding by observing their participation in class discussion and answering math-related questions and through their homework submissions.
