Lesson Plan

Day: M T W T F Date: 02-03-2017 Time:9:30 Year: 9 Modified

Learning Area: Processing and analysing data and information

Topic: Variables (Controlled, Independent, Dependent)

Curriculum content description: (from ACARA)

Collaboratively and individually plan and conduct a range of investigation types, including
fieldwork and experiments, ensuring safety and ethical guidelines are followed (ACSIS140)

Measure and control variables, select equipment appropriate to the task and collect data with
accuracy (ACSIS141)

Students prior knowledge and experience:

Understanding of the basic concepts of experiments and why they are conducted. Measurement differences
between width and heightt
Learning purpose: (May refer to the Elaborations of the curriculum content description here)

using specialised equipment to increase the accuracy of measurement within an investigation

identifying and explaining the differences between controlled, dependent and independent

Learning objectives: Evaluation:

On completion of this lesson, students will be able to: (Explain how you will know that lesson objective has
(What will students know and be able to do at the been achieved / monitor student learning).
completion of the lesson specific, concise and Questioning students through variable case
attainable objectives). studies on power point
Understand the terms Dependent, Checking worksheets
Independent, and controlled variables.
Identify these variables in an experiment
Successfully interpret and record
measurements in experiment
Preparation and Resources:
(Detail what resources will be used and what other preparation of the learning environment will be required)

Power point and projector

Apparatus: various sized beakers, water, rulers, colouring dye

Catering for diversity (detail any adjustments considerations for educational/resource adjustments)

some students need to be taught at a slower pace to suit their learning pace
reiterate core material to ensure students understanding on the topic
some students get bored with worksheets- visual and relate variables to life settings to help
engage these students

Timing: Learning Experiences:

15min 1. Introduction: (How will I engage the learners?)

Mention of a practical experiment
What the three variables are
Examples of variables in example experiments

25min 2. Sequence of learning experiences: (What will you do to help the students achieve the
learning objectives? What tasks and activities will the students be involved in to help
achieve the learning objectives?)

Practice experiment where students will apply and reinforce learning on the three types of
variables discussed
The work sheet will run alongside the experiment where students can see the experiment
plan and where the students can record their measurements
Class discussion about the variables in the experiment and results
Optional: Graphing results to show tends (Maybe too advanced at this point in time)

10min Lesson conclusion: (How will you summarise the learning and relate it to the lesson objectives?)
Students are confident in answering questions throughout the lesson. Students work is correct.

Video summarising lesson and the use of variables in science experiments. Also, a video to lead onto
the next lesson (if time allows/students grip with current lesson)
5-10min Filler: game relating science variables and or other game
