Important points for physics field trip on 25th Januray_Grade 9

Dear learners,

Kindly note the following points about the field trip to Science City, Ahmedabad. 

Visit to Science city, Ahmedabad will enhance student’s physics  knowledge. This visit is intended to explore the applications of various concepts of physics like energy, work & power. It is explicitly planned for students to learn and have fun. They will be watching a 3D movie “Walking on the moon”.

Alignment of CoS syllabus with different attractions of Science city is as follow.

No. Unit name Learning outcomes to be achieved Science city attractions
1. Energy Give and identify examples of energy in different forms, including kinetic, gravitational, chemical, strain, nuclear, thermal (heat), electrical, light and sound. Energy Park
2. Give and identify examples of the conversion of energy from one form to another, and of its transfer from one place to another.
3. Describe how electricity or other useful
forms of energy may be obtained from:
•Chemical energy stored in fuel
• Water, including the energy stored in waves, in tides, and in water behind
hydroelectric dams
•Geothermal resources
•Nuclear fission
•Heat and light from the Sun (solar cells and panels)
•Wind.
3. Magnetism Distinguish between the design and use of permanent magnets and electromagnets. Hall of Science
4. Motion Describe and use the concept of weight as the effect of a gravitational field on a mass.
5. Light Describe the dispersion of light by a glass prism.
6. Sound Describe how the reflection of sound may produce an echo

“grade 12 chemistry highlights Option B, Biochemistry”

Dear all

This week HL students completed their HL syllabus by completing the chapter, “stereochemistry in biomolecules”. They studied the D, L- system of naming amino acids and carbohydrates, the stereochemistry of vitamin A and visual cycle, TOK connections of use of hydrogenation and saturated fats in food industry were also discussed. The teaching was supplemented with videos and classroom discussions.

As the syllabus is completed for HL students also, from next week thorough revision of areas of concern, practicing past papers, and doubt solving sessions will be conducted.

Grade 7_Mathematics_Highlights of the week (16th January to 20th January 2017)

Dear Parents,

Here’s what we did:

  1. To frame and understand expressions, students played a game, known as “I have”, which checked their presence of mind, their communication skills as well as their thinking skills.  They really enjoyed playing this game.
  2. To help students understand like and unlike terms better, they were explained by drawing pictures of examples on board. To get more clarity about the same, students were explained the concept using montero cubes and square flat plates kit. They did some exercise sums in the class.
  3. Weekend H.W. has been given.

Thanks and Regards,
