**Introduction:**

The history of mathematics can be used to introduce and contextualize a lesson. It can also help motivate students to want to learn more about a particular mathematical topic.

For this task, you will create a lesson plan that incorporates the historical development of mathematics to help motivate and engage students. The strategies of your lesson plan should be supported by two current research articles about using history to teach mathematics.

**Task:**

Â

A.Â Provide a mathematics lesson plan using the attached â€œWGU Lesson Plan Format.â€

Â

*Note: You may use a lesson plan you have previously created, or you may use a lesson plan from another source. If you use a lesson plan from another source, you must cite it in APA format. Use the attached â€œWGU Lesson Plan Formatâ€ as a template to adapt your lesson plan.*

Â

Â

1.Â Incorporate the history of mathematics as a pedagogical tool to engage students.

Â

Â

*Note: Examples of effective use of history to engage students include interesting stories about a mathematician involved in developing that mathematical topic, comparing historical and contemporary approaches to solving a problem, and discussing the historical impacts (cultural or technological) of applying the mathematics.*

Â

Â

Â

2.Â Justify how your lesson plan strategies could improve student learning, based on two current research articles about using history to teach mathematics.

Â

Â

*Note: The articles you selected should come from peer-reviewed journals published within the last seven years.*

Â

Â

B.Â When you use sources, include all in-text citations and references in APA format.

Â

*Note: When bulleted points are present in the task prompt, the level of detail or support called for in the rubric refers to those bulleted points. *
