Mathematics_Grade 9 Fortuity_Highlights of the week

Dear Parents,

This week we continued with the same unit “Direct and Inverse Variation”, wherein they were given all sorts of questions from different aspects of real life.

A blendspace was shared with the students which had all kinds of questions. They could find the real life applications and where the chapter could be used practically. The chapter was integrated with Science.

We plan to play a student led quiz wherein they have been divided into groups of 4 and each group will make questions and the other groups are supposed to answer them.  The quiz will include questions from all the chapters that we have covered in Grade 9 till date.

Thanks and Regards,

Jyoti Khandelwal.
