Dear Parents,
Here are the highlights of the week:

  1. We started the week and new unit Mensuration with an opening activity. Here students suppose to find the perimeter and area of some given figures and establish relationship of area of a standard tile with the area of given figure.
  2. After this we did a revision of the formulas to find out perimeter and area of some 2 D shapes viz Triangle, Circle, Square, Rectangle, Parallelogram, Rhombus, Trapezium. Based on this we solved Ex 6.7 and Ex 6.8.
  3. Weekend HW of statistics was discussed in the class.
  4. Further we did Ex 6.1 and Ex 6.2 which were based on Circle questions.

PS: Students have their UT 8 on 3rd March based on Statistics. Practice worksheet for the same has been posted in google classroom.
