|Math||Algebra has been an interesting concept. Simplifying expressions, understanding like and unlike terms, and finally solving equations kept us on our toes. We watched interesting and engaging videos of the conc|
epts for better leaning. We had daily drills to revise prior learning of distributive property and integers to be able to take our understanding of the unit forward. We completed our first collaborative formative assessment on investigation of patterns and received feedback on the same. We are enjoying exploring the concept of algebra this term.

Physics: Last week, we learned about various types of forces: contact and non-contact force. We did a Tug of War activity through which we learned about balanced and unbalanced forces. We saw that when the string was not moving on either side, a 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. Videos were shown to demonstrate the deformation caused in objects due to the application of force, through which we designed an investigation cycle.
