Grade 7_Mathematics_Highlights of the week (27th March to 31st March 2017)

Grade 7_Mathematics_Highlights of the week (27th March to 31st March 2017)

Dear Parents,

Here’s what we did this week:

  1. We started with a new topic ‘Triangles’. Students learnt about classification of Triangles.
  2. Further students made two different triangles and measured each angle of a triangle and did sum of all the angles of a triangle. Through this experiment, they understood that angles in a triangle always add up to 180 degrees. 
  3. Then students learnt ‘Exterior angle of a triangle’. It was explained through hypothetical values. They understood that exterior angle of a triangle equals to the sum of the opposite two interior angles of a triangle.
  4. This week they got two days to prepare for their annual performance.
  5. Weekend H.W. has been given.

Thanks and Regards,

Grade 7_Mathematics_Highlights of the week (20th to 24th March 2017)

Dear Parents,

Here’s what we did this week:

  1. Students learned about different angles formed in parallel lines when cut by a transversal (Corresponding angles, alternate angles, co-interior angles, supplementary angles, Vertically opposite angles). They could also build a relationship between these angles. For this they did an activity, where they drew a pair of parallel lines and a transversal cutting these lines. They measured each angle and then it became easier for them to relate different pair of angles.
  2. They learnt about different mathematical terminologies used in the lines and angles.
  3. Students did sums from worksheet.
  4. This week they also got some slots to prepare for their coming annual performance.

Thanks and Regards,
