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. They also understood that angles in a triangle always add up to 180 degrees based on various examples. Later they did few exercise sums in the class.
  2. Students further learnt ‘Exterior angle of a triangle’. It was explained through hypothetical values where they understood that exterior angle of a triangle equals to the sum of the opposite two interior angles of a triangle and did few exercise sums in the class.
  3. The rest of the week was spent in Annual Performance preparations. It is worth mentioning that student displayed teamwork, respect and enthusiasm during the preparations.
  4. Weekend H.W. has been given.

Thanks and Regards,

Grade 7 Math team
