Lesson Plan in Mathematics Using Glasson’s Learning Cycle

By Lerry

Year Level : First Year Secondary Students

Section : Heterogeneous Class

No. of Students : 40

Prior knowledge required : Fundamental operation of numbers, Fractions,

Decimals

Lesson 1: Topic Title: Percent

§ Teaching Strategy Applied: Glasson’s Learning Cycle
