Lesson Study Open House Elementary School Attached to Tsukuba University, Tokyo, Japan

The main problem is to find the masses of chocolate of different shapes (all have the same thickness). The square piece weighs 400g.

The first two shapes given (1) and (2) were triangle (obviously half) and square (less obvious that it is half).

The last problems were (3) and (4). Do you see how the two are related?

I was fortunate to participate in the open house. This research lesson is for grade five and was attended by thousands of teachers from all over Japan.

  1. Elementary school teachers are responsible for the educational and emotional development of children in the beginning of their academic years. Most elementary school teachers instruct one class of children in several subjects; although some of them teach one special subject (usually music, art, reading, science, or physical education) to a number of different classes at different times.
