Tiered Lesson

Name & Student Number: Mikaela Sawyer 213 5819

Curriculum (Learning) Area of Lesson: Maths, Area and Volume

Specific Topic of Lesson: Area of Composite Shapes

Year Level: 9

Lesson Context

This lesson is the second lesson in a maths unit on area and volume. The unit will be conducted over 6 weeks

and will involve 3 lessons a week (including 1 double and 2 single lessons). This lesson will use prior knowledge

to explore the concept of calculating the area of composite shapes and will run for 100mins (double lesson).

The lesson will follow a pre-assessment lesson, where results from a work sheet showing students pre-existing

knowledge and understanding of area and volume will be used to group students. Concepts covered in the

pre-assessment test include; key terms used in area and volume, converting units of measurement and

converting units of volume and capacity, naming shapes (2 dimensional and 3 dimensional), common area and

volume formulas and calculating area, capacity and volume. These are all topics taught in the year 8

curriculum. The test will determine the readiness of students.

This lesson is primarily to ensure that students are ready to move further in this topic and learn the new

concepts that will be taught throughout the unit. The concepts in this lesson may have been introduced in the

previous year and therefore there will be a wide range of readiness levels within the class.

Learning Objectives

As a result of engaging with the lesson, students will.

Understand that:

Composite shapes can be broken down into complex shapes to determine area (ACMMG216)

How the area of composite shapes can be used in everyday life

Know:

Vocabulary associated with finding the area of a shape (for example; length, base, width and height)

Formulae associated with finding the area of specific shapes (for example; squares, rectangles,

triangles, circles, parallelograms, trapeziums, rhombuses and kites)

Appropriate units of area

Be able to (do):

Calculate area of composite shapes using formulae

Apply the concept of finding the area of a composite shape to a real life scenario

Essential Question/s:

How can composite shapes be used in everyday life?

Pre-assessment occurred in the lesson prior to allow the teacher to review the students answers and form

groups for this lesson. The pre-assessment included a worksheet that established students readiness for the

topic. This included establishing if they had a foundation knowledge and understanding based on what they

would have been taught in the previous year. The year 8 ACARA achievement standard states that by the end

of year 8 students can convert between units of measurement for area and volume. They can perform

calculations to determine perimeter and area of parallelograms, rhombuses and kites. They name the features

of circles and calculate the areas and circumferences of circles (ACARA, 2016).

Based on their responses, students will be placed in 3 groups. The responses will be primarily based on

whether students have an understanding of vocabulary associated with area, naming shapes, matching area

formulae with the corresponding shape and using those formulae to calculate area of certain shapes.

Questions 1,3,4 and 5 is the worksheet.

Group 1 will be students that struggle with these concepts, especially calculating area using formulae.

Group 2 will be students that struggled with these concepts, but still had some understanding of what they

needed to do. These students may have an understanding of the formulae, but have difficulty applying them.

Group 3 will be students that demonstrated a strong understanding of the concepts. They do not need to get

everything right in the worksheet, but have a grasp of what they need to do.

Size of each group will not matter. Students will primarily be placed where the teacher believes they will get

the greatest benefit and will result in higher quality learning. This may mean that students are placed in a

higher group if they are on the borderline of a group.

Refer to Appendix 1 for the Pre-assessment worksheet.

(William, 2011). This will also allow the teacher to

students needs.

Explanation:

This unit is based on a pre-assessment done in the previous lesson. The pre-assessment phase of planning a

unit or lesson is crucial because it facilitates the teachers ability to differentiate by creating a baseline about

student knowledge and understanding (Moon, 2005). The pre-assessment in this unit gives the teacher

appropriate feedback which allows the teacher to determine students readiness. Readiness refers to the

students grasp on learning goals at a certain point in time (Doubet & Hockett, 2015). The pre-assessment may

show that majority of the students struggled with the concepts assessed. If this is the case, this particular

lesson would be pushed back and a couple of revision lessons would be done to ensure that students

readiness is appropriate to begin the new content.

Understanding the students readiness levels allows the teacher to apply tiering to the lesson. This has been

done by creating 3 readiness groups. Separating students into groups based on their readiness to learn allows

them to be placed closer to their zone of proximal development (Vygotsky, 1987). Tiering also allows each

student to work towards the understanding of area of composite shapes whilst undertaking modified

challenges (Tomlinson, 2000). Tomlinson (2014) also explains that tiering is useful as it ensures that students

with different degree of learning proficiency work with the same essential ideas and same key knowledge and

skills. Therefore, it is not only catering for students who struggle, but students who need extension.

Once students were placed in readiness groups, the tasks were differentiated by complexity. Each group had a

different task, but overall were working towards the same learning objective (Doubet & Hockett, 2015). The

tasks have been designed to be respectful by engaging equally and remaining interesting for all students. The

lesson sequence has been designed to cover all the verbs from Blooms taxonomy - remember (warm up

activity), explore/create (activity 1), understand/analyse/evaluate (discussion) and apply (activity 3). This

process allows teachers to present ideas and concepts at many different levels to meet the needs of a variety

of learners (Krathwohl, 2002). For this lesson to be effective, it is essential that the teacher has an

understanding of where students are at throughout the lesson and that instruction and objectives for the

lesson are explicit. As fundamentally differentiation is an instructional model focused on how teachers teach

and how students learn (Tomlinson & McTighe, 2006).

Finally, this lesson has been designed to ensure all students have equal opportunity and support and also a

sense of belonging. This ensures that students are able to participate meaningfully and continue their

development in an inclusive environment for all (Sternberg & Zhang 2005).
