Grade 8_Verve,Zest_Mathematics_Highlights of the week

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

We continued with the unit of Mensuration and understood the concept of Arc, Arc length, Sector and Sector area of a circle.
To understand these further we did the questions from Ex 6.3, 6.4, 6.5 and 6.6 in the class.
Unit test was conducted this week on Statistics Unit.
Have a nice weekend.

Grade 8_verve_Mathematics_Highlights of the week_24th Feb, 2017

Dear Parent,

This week students started with the activity related to our new unit Mensuration where they were divided in the groups and each group had to find the area and number of blocks required to cover the given diagram and also the perimeter of the diagram. This gave a general warm up opening exercise for our new unit. we then proceeded with the unit by exploring areas of different 2D shapes as well as difference between 2D and 3D shapes.

Exercise 6.7 and 6.8 was completed to give students a general idea about how to calculate area of the given figure excluding area of circle. we then shifted our focus to area and circumference of circle and completed exercise 6.1 and exercise 6.2

Here are the few glimpses of the activity conducted in the class.

Regards,

Ankita

Dear Parents,
Lets glance through the work done by students in this week:
1. Students explored further about how to analyse the data by finding out the averages that include mean, median, mode, range and inter-quartile range of the given discrete data.
2. They have also learnt how to calculate missing sum of the observation or data if the mean and number of observation is given to them.
3. They have completed exercise 11.8 based on the understanding of mean median,, mode, range and inter-quartile range.
4. Worksheet was given to the students to solve some other questions based on mean related to missing figure in google classroom for their further practice on word problems.

Grade 8_Exuberance, Vivacity_Mathematics_Highlights of the week_27th January,2017

Dear Parents,
Here are the glimpses of the work done by students in this week:
1. Students have completed exercise 11.3 related to Grouped discrete data and learned to make Grouped continuous data using inequalities.
2. One example was given in class to practice grouped continuous data as sums related to it was not given in the textbook they refer in class.
3. They learned new way of representing data through Pie Charts, compound bar Chart and line graph and applied their learning in exercise 11.4.
4. To recover the original data from the diagram itself, Students learned Stem-and-leaf Plots and back to back diagram to represent and compare data without losing the importance of original data.
