SubjectBlog Content
MathWe first learnt about number patterns and deriving rules to find unknown values from the number pattern, for which we later attempted a peer FA .After number patterns we learned about the algebraic terms. We learnt about like and unlike terms and how to simplify equations by clubbing them together. To strengthen our knowledge about algebra we attempted word problem which helped us learn about substitution of variables. We also learnt how to apply number properties in case of variable. This wonderful week came to an end with an invigorating session on how to solve equations by using inverse operation rules and our previous knowledge of Algebra.

Individuals & SocietiesIn the past week we learnt the meaning of various types of diversities and other unit related terminologies through activities like making comic strips and role plays. We saw a video on stereotyping and wrote our reflection of the same. We watched a presentation where we saw how people are breaking stereotypes and achieving great heights in life. We are presently working on our FA which is about creating a poster on diversity and its impacts. We are enjoying learning the unit a lot as it is relatable to our everyday lives.

ScienceBiology/Chemistry: We were introduced with the concept of neutralization through a video discussing how acids and bases when mixed together neutralize each other. We learnt many applications of neutralization in real life. We reinforced our understanding of acids, bases and neutralization through a self- reflection activity. Then we inquired how do buildings corrode and how ocean waters get acidified. Linking it further, we learnt about the concept of acid rain and discussed its causes.

Physics: Last week during physics class we learned about various types of forces: contact and non-contact force. We did an activity named Tug of War through which we learned about balanced and unbalanced forces; we saw that when the string was not moving on either side balanced force was acting on it. We attempted some questions on calculating the net force of an object when various forces are acting on it. We also learned that force is a vector quantity through the activity. We watched videos that discussed the deformation caused in objects due to the application of force through which we designed an investigation cycle. By- Rishabh Iyer Kochhar

Product DesignOver the last two weeks, we were introduced to our new unit Wooden Manipulatives and presented with a real-life design problem. We followed criterion A of the design cycle to inquire and analyse the problem. We were asked to make a mind-map to organize our inquiry questions. We also interviewed our clients as a part of the primary research and wrote some guiding questions to conduct secondary research.

Visual ArtWe were introduced to our second unit ‘Nature Morte’ through a group discussion on still life and its elements. We inquired into some famous still life artists and observed their artwork to critically analyse them. We also sketched some simple objects kept on our tables to understand the proportions and symmetry better. We are now working on our formative assessment in which we have chosen three objects to arrange them into a composition and to study them with pencils and a medium of our choice, following the given checklist.
