Students are taught how to express a given quantity in both fraction and decimal ways. The students investigate tenths using their fraction information from Module 5. In the exploration of tenths, the student could use other metric units such as miters, kilograms, and centimeters. Students can also learn how to model various digits into tenths using metric units. Student use decimal notations for fractions with denominator 10.

Link with Prior Knowledge: The previous knowledge on Fraction patterns from module 5 where the students were guided by the teacher to generate patterns will be used. The same knowledge will be used in generating ten patterns or strips that are essential in exploring tenths. The teacher will use this knowledge to guide the student now to create a ten striped pattern object or diagrams.

Key Vocabulary: Fraction: is a small part of the whole.

Decimal: a number system that uses digits o, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9

Tenths: One of ten equal patterns or parts of a whole.

Materials: Pencil, manila paper, plain papers, erasers, worksheet, scissors, ruler, orange and a knife or a scalpel.(The teacher to handle the knife or the scalpel)

Motivation: at the beginning of the lessons, the teacher guides the learner to mention some of the fraction dimensions learned in the previous module. The fractions to be reviewed in the song include a half, a third, a fourth, a fifth, a sixth, a seventh. The teacher then introduces the knowledge of tenths concerning the reviewed fractions. Students are grouped and given pieces of manila paper to come up with ten equal parts. The exercise is done in groups to make the action lively. The first group to finish the assignment presents it to the teacher then the teacher acknowledges this group by guiding the rest of the class to clap for the group.

Lesson Plan Procedures: Guide the learner to draw equal patterns on the strips of the manila paper. The learners are guided to shade the patterns in sequences while naming the resulting parts into 1/10, 2/10, 3/10. This is then converted to decimal such that 3tenths=3/10=0.3

Medial Summary: The teacher uses the board ruler to draw a big strip on the board. The teacher divides this strip into equal patterns and starts shading them as he names the resulting figure. The students are also guided to follow this procedure by the teacher. The teacher monitors and supervises this exercise around the classroom and assists the students who are stuck in the activity.

Differentiated Instruction: The teacher engages the learners into question and answer concerning the lesson learned. When the class is unable to respond to the question in the given time, the teacher gives the learner time to discuss amongst them to come up with the idea about the question. The teacher then corrects the students in concerning the answers that were not correct

Opportunities for Practice: The teacher guides the students in selecting a partner or group different from the previously used groups. The new groups are issued with plain papers to form ten equal patterns and start shading them as they write the resulting fraction and decimal after every shade. The teacher also gives the student homework related to the topic; exploring tenths.

Final Summary: The teacher calls volunteers to come and give a recap of the lesson and relate it to the learning objective. The teacher also engages the learner in the oral questions and answers in an interactive session.

Assessment: The teacher asks the students to submit their worksheet for making so that he can assess individual performance.

Classroom Management: The management of the class was maintained by the captain selected by the teacher. The captain is expected to guide the rest of the students in waste management to uphold a clean learning environment and to maintain environmental responsibility.

Attention to Multicultural Issues: The teacher in the grouping and pairing of students allowed the existence of heterogeneity to avoid marginalization. This is essential in making sure that each group is represented by students with diverse cultures.
