I teach mathematics at school level. Lesson plans are soul of any lesson that a teacher takes in a class. I want to create lesson plan on different mathematics topic as per the level of the syllabus (topic example: trigonometry, geometry concepts and others).

As they will be the backbone of any class that i take. I'm working to see that preparation of lesson plan are given due care and pitfalls are avoided.

Please suggest me any resource (net/books/software) that can be help me create excellent lesson plans, that i can use to greatly improve my class.

Thanks, Arif

Please see this article:maa.org/devlin/LockhartsLament.pdf I hope it is relevant and I think it talks a bit about mathematics teaching. –  Eisen Nov 7 '11 at 10:30
You need to give a lot more specific information about yourself and your situation because even in the U.S. there is a great variety in what is required and what is desired in lesson plans, even within the same state (and sometimes even within the same school district). In case it could be of use, in the late 1980s I had to use something called the "multiple-strategies model" (developed by Steven K. Million, Winthrop University), which is described in detail in the following document: eric.ed.gov/PDFS/ED309142.pdf –  Dave L. Renfro Nov 7 '11 at 12:36
thanks for the references to be more specific. I did my Bachelor in Education and we use to have Lesson plan in the below mention format * Previous knowledge of student * Content Analysis. * teaching objectives(knowledge, understanding, application), specification (pupil develops,explains). * Set Induction. * Two columns, one describe teaching points and other how a teacher will explain those points. * Review * Evaluation * Homework * Board work (how you board at the end of class should look) @DaveL.Renfro –  Arif Nov 7 '11 at 14:12
