Dear Students,

Thanks for being patient participants in the interaction today. Here’s the video and photo as promised. Please go to this Fountainhead School Google Plus Page and you will find both here.

Further, here’s the Google Doc that we used to gather all the questions. I haven’t edited it – so you can see it as it was earlier.

Also, some of you wanted to share your thoughts / verses on the unit – please do so as comments to this post (or else as comments to the post on the Google Plus page). I will be happy to read those.

If you have any other questions about this unit, you can ask them at either places.

Regards,

Vardan Kabra

Physics Homework (COS Students)

Physics Homework (COS Students)

Dear Students,

As mentioned these are two things that you are expected to finish by the class on Friday:

a. Finish the reflection sheet on the experimental chart given to you – you should ideally do this in your groups, so that all the members are aware of what you’ve learnt from the exercise (time required: about 20-30 min in school, no internet).

b. Read the Chapters 34 and 35 in your IGCSE Physics textbook and solve the questions given at the end of each of the two chapters. You can solve all the problems in your Physics notebook itself (time required: about an hour, no internet).

c. For those of you who can, this a youtube video playlist on the current unit that I would encourage you to watch to enhance your understanding: Current Flow (time required: 30 min for all the Module 2 videos – which are sufficient for now; internet is needed for this).

Next session, we will cover the theory behind the experiments done till now and we’ll also start with a new chapter.

Regards,

Vardan Kabra

Highlights of 18th and 19th February.

Math:
Showed the video related to tables. Tables of 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Different ways were shown in the video about how to count the tables. As for the table of 2; the answer is double the number, for the table of 3; the 1st 2 numbers you have to whisper and the third number you have to say loudly, for the table of 4; it is double the number twice as in 4*2 is 2 plus 2 i.e 4 and then 4 plus 4 is 8 so 4*2 is 8; and for the table of 5; you have to count till 5 i.e skip counting by 5. Learners then wrote all the tables till 5 in their math note book.

Lang:
Learners did story sequence based on their reader “Play Ball Amelia Bedelia”. They were given the scenes of story in the form of strips they have to read and arrange them all in correct order on chart paper.
