Math-Science Trivia 2016-17

Dear Students,
 
 
 
To testify your knowledge in Mathematics & Science, here comes an inter-house event on your way.
Kindly find the details for the event in the image given below.
 
 
 
 
 
All the students will take part in the Selection Round where in an MCQ based paper will be given in Science and short response paper (which will include MCQs and fill in the blanks) will be given in Math.
 
 
The top 2 scorers from each house across the grade will be selected for the Final Round.
 
 
 
Topics for the event are:
 
 
Mathematics: General Math and curriculum learnt till date across Grade- 7 and 8
 
Science: General Science and curriculum learnt till date.
 
 
 
 

So, gear up yourself for the upcoming trivia.

Grade 8 _ Zing _ Math _ Highlights of the week

Grade 8 _ Zing _ Math _ Highlights of the week

Dear Parents,

Below is the brief update of what was being done in Math slot over the past 2 weeks.

(From 02 nd January to 6th January, 2017 and 09th  January to 13th  January)

  1. We started with a new unit- Pythagoras Theorem which was initiated with how it was discovered and who discovered it. Students were shown 2 videos in the class which showcased the proof of the theorem. They were also taught the equation of the theorem using few worked examples.
  2. With this they solved the questions of the exercise 4.9 in the class which were based on using Pythagoras Theorem. With this, they were clear with how to find the missing length of the given right-angles triangle.
  3. In between, they also appeared in the unit test of Math which was conducted on  5th  January on the previously taught unit- Linear & Simultaneous Equations. The paper of the same has been handed over to each one in last week. 
  4. We also discussed the real life application of Pythagoras Theorem.
  5. To make their learning interesting, an activity was conducted wherein they were divided into group of 3-4 and were asked to measure the lengths as well as the breadths of few of the rectangular things located in the school premises. With this, they calculated the diagonals using calculators and verified the same using measuring tape.
  6. We also started with another unit last week which is Surds. It was initiated with its meaning and how it is different from other irrational numbers.
  7. They learnt simplifying as well as rationalising surds followed by practising the questions of the same from exercise 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and 1.4.
  8. One PPT has been shared and uploaded on Google classroom so that they can go through it for better understanding.

 

Below are few of the images of the activity conducted with them on the unit- Pythagoras Theorem.

Grade 9 _ Epiphany & Serendipity _ International Mathematics (Extended) _ Highlights

Dear Parents,

This is what we did in IM classes over the past 2 weeks.

(From 02 nd January to 6th January, 2017 and 09th  January to 13th  January)

  1. We started with a new unit- Trigonometry which was initiated with what trigonometry is and where this word came from. With this they also learnt the 3 basic trigonometric ratios (sine, cosine and tangent), what they are for and how they help in finding the missing angle/length of given triangles.
  2. Based on the learning, they practiced questions of trigonometry from exercise 8.1, 8.2, 8.3 and 8.4.
  3. We also discussed the real life applications of the concept- Trigonometry.
  4. They also learnt the concept- Bearing which was included in the questions of exercise 8.4. Therefore they have now well understood how to find the bearing of one point from the given another point.
  5. Then they were taught the rules of Trigonometry- mainly Sine and Cosine rule and how they are used in triangles. These two rules were basically taught through the derivation and then worked examples based on these two rules were discussed in the class.
  6. In between, students appeared in the unit test which was conducted on 11th   January on the previous unit- Properties of Circle.
  7. They also practiced questions from exercise 8.7 and 8.8 in IM slot.
  8. By now, they are well versed with how to solve questions related to using trigonometric ratios and rules on their GDC.
