G9 – Literature – Highlights of the Week

G9 – Literature – Highlights of the Week

Dear Parents,

This week we completed an Unseen component in the Literature workbook. Students read an extract by James Joyce focusing on exploration of characters. They completed answers in the workbook. We then started with a new poem – Passion by Kathleen Raine. As part of the initiation activity, students were given prints of different stanzas of the poem. They were asked to arrange them according to their understanding. The objective was to understand their thought process and what points do they consider when they read a poem. One group arranged the eight stanzas focusing on the story being told through a poem; another group focused on rhyming words.

The activity was followed by information about the author and her philosophical leanings. We have started with the analysis of the first stanza.

Dear Parents,

Post winter trips, we completed Poisson Distribution and its parameters. Lot of real life word problems were solved in class. With this we covered the entire Discrete random variable.

We now started with a new unit ‘FUNCTIONS’. Students have already learnt functions in depth in grade 10. We had a quick revision in which the following topics were covered :

(i) Relations and functions
(ii) Mapping diagram
(iii) Domain and range
(iv) Inverse functions

Students were also introduced to new topics like

(v) Self-Inverse functions
(vi) Odd and even functions – Graphical and algebraic approach

A formative assessment was taken where MCQs were given on topic relations and functions. Students are also given marks.

Krishna Shethji
