**WEEK
2 TOPIC: MONEY (RATES, TAXES, SHARES AND DIVIDENDS)**

**LESSON OBJECTIVE**:
Pupils should be able to:

- Solve
problems on taxes and Rates on population and economic

Consequences.

Rate – means what the government Provides for her people.

Example

Agege Local government charges N5.50 monthly for the user: Find

the total rent collected monthly From

(A). 50 stalls (B) 160 stalls

(A). Monthly rate collected for N50

**Taxes: **This is the money that Government uses to build schools,

Hospitals, roads etc. Example Tax deducted from the taxable Income of an
employee is 35K on Every N1. Find the tax paid if the Taxable income is N4,500
= (4,500×35)K = 1,575.00K = 1,575.00

- Solve problem on buying and selling of shares and dividends.

**Shares: **The amount
needed is divided into units and each unit is called a share. Example

A metal manufacturing company Sells some of its 40K share to the

Public who are ready to buy in Multiples of 200.

(i). what is the cost of 800 shares?

(ii). How many shares can I buy With N1, 250?

Cost of one share = 40K

Cost of 800 Share = 40×800

**Dividends **This is the
amount made from the goods sold at the

End of the year. The profit is called Dividend.

Measuring tapes for long Distances e.g. the distances of

(i). Boy to the teacher’s desk, Measured in kilometers (Km) is

4.326Km i.e. 4Km 326m - Measuring the distance angle: right angles, acute angles. Drawing of square on the sides of a Right angled.

**QUANTITATIVE

Related to Length.

**WEEK
4 TOPIC: PERIMETER (REGULAR & IRREGULAR SHAPES)**

**LESSON
OBJECTIVE**: Pupils should be able to:

- Find the find
the Perimeter of rectangles.

A rectangle has length (L) and Breadth (B) perimeter of a rectangle

= (L + B + L + B) = L + L + B + B

= 2 (L + B)

- Find the area of a rectangle
- Find the area and perimeter of two Rectangles

**QUANTITATIVE
REASONING**

**WEEK
5 TOPICS: AREA
(TRAPEZIUM)**

**LESSON
OBJECTIVE**: Pupils should be able to:

- Define a trapezium:
A trapezium is a Four sided figures with one pair of its

Opposite sides parallel. - Calculate the
land areas in Hectares Large areas of land

Are measured using hectares e.g. 1 hectares = 1000m2

**WEEK
6 TOPIC: VOLUME – VOLUME OF PRISMS, CYLINDERS AND
SPHERES**

**QUANTITATIVE
APTITUDE**

**LESSON
OBJECTIVE**: Pupils should be able to:

- Calculate the
volume of prisms this is a triangular Prism for any prism

with uniform cross section the volume.

V = Area of
cross section × Heigth

Example: Find the volume of the triangular prism Where the Area of Cross –
Section is 20cm2 and the length is 5cm.

- Volume of
cylinder and a Sphere. A cylinder is a prism With a circular Cross – Section

Volume of Cylinder = Area of Circle × height

e.g. Find the
volume of a cylinder whose base radius is 5cm and

the height is 24cm Radius = 5cm

Height = 14cm

Volume of a cylinder = piexrsquareh

(x = 22⁄7)

**QUANTITATIVE
APTITUDE: **They should be able to solve quantitative aptitude related to volume of prisms and
Sphere.

**WEEK
7 TOPIC: CAPACITY**

**LESSON
OBJECTIVE**: Pupils will be able to:

- Express capacity in 1 cm3 = iml

1000cm3 = 1
liter = 1000ml

1 liter of water weights 1 Kilogram (Kg)

10ml of water
weights = 1000g

1000cm3 of water weighs 1Kg

- Addition and subtraction of Capacity
- Multiplication and division of Capacity

e.g

A taxi driver
uses 69 liters of petrol a day. Find the amount of petrol he uses in 28 days
=69 × 28 = 1932 liters

How many times can a Bucket be filled
from a barrel of 936 liters if the bucket holds 24 Liters at a time?

936 ÷ 24 liters = 39 times

**QUANTITATIVE
APTITUDE**.

**WEEK
8 TOPICS: WEIGHT**

**LESSON
OBJECTIVE**: Pupils should be able to:

- Express
weight in grams, Kilograms and tones

1000 – 1Kg; 1000Kg – 1 tonne etc. - Obtain
measurement of Pupils weight, books, stones

Etc. Using weight scale. - Add and subtract weight e.g.

(A). 7.625Kg + 5.396 =
13.021Kg

(B). 8.4Kg – 5.625 = 8.400Kg

5.625Kg

- Multiply and divide Questions on weight

**QUANTITATIVE
REASONING: **Solve words problems on
weight

**WEEK
9 TOPIC: TIME**

**LESSON
OBJECTIVE**: Pupils should be able to:

- Tell time in
seconds, minutes and hours

i.e. conversion e.g.

60 seconds –
1 minute

60 minutes – 1 hour etc.

Convert 130 seconds to minute and seconds 130: 60 = 2 min 10 sec.

- Add and subtract time correctly.
- Multiply and divide time Correctly

(A). 2h 16
min × 7

= h min

2 16

× 7

15 52

2h × 60 = 120

16min × 1 = 16

136 × 16

= 952 ÷ 60

= 15h 52 min

**LESSON
OBJECTIVE**: Pupils should be able to:

- State the
meaning of speed as the distance travelled per

Time taken to cover the distance e.g. Speed = Distance: time

taken to cover it S = D/T Km/h, M/S, m/min etc. - Time while speed and Distance is known
- Find distance while time and speed are given.

Distance =
