Dear Parents,
Here are the highlights of the work done in this week:

  1. Since there is still a month left for term exams we decided to continue with Mensuration. We covered Prism, difference between prism and pyramid, and Cone.
  2. We looked into how to calculate the surface area and volume of various prism. Based on it  we completed exercise 6.11 and 6.12.
  3. Later we looked into volume, curved surface area and total surface area of Cone and completed Ex 6.18, 6.19 and 6.21.

Have a nice weekend!!!
