Mathematics is the science that deals with the logic of shape, quantity
and arrangement. Math is all around us, in everything we do. With an aim to make mathematics real and meaningful, an activity on ‘Measurement’ was done in class. Using a pan balance, students of grade 1 explore how heavy something is. Erasers were kept on one side of a pan balance and some weights on the other side. Students in groups performed the activity enthusiastically to learn the skill of measurement. Two new terms heavy and light were introduced. This activity proved to be a great learning experience for the young Presidians.
