Recent years have witnessed an increasing number of students suffering from a Maths ‘phobia’. Our school, in order to ensure that our students develop a love for this fascinating and crucial subject, has come out with a novel way of tackling this problem. Our Mathematics Laboratory enables students to learn and explore mathematical concepts and verify facts and theorems through a variety of practical activities using different materials and models.
These activities are carried out by the teacher and the students to explore, to learn, to stimulate interest and develop a positive attitude towards mathematics. Students participate in many different activities that promote hands-on learning. These activities allow students to practice new concepts and try their hand as novel problem-solving methods. Our school also encourages students to participate in various national-level competitions such as the Maths Olympiad and National Talent Search Examination (NTSE).
Language Lab is a network-based teaching software with 35 workstations designed to help students improve their pronunciation, reading and listening skills. Every student has a monitor and a head set with a recorder that allows them to train their skills individually. The teacher usually uses a controller PC that allows them to remote control and monitor the computer accessed by students. The process is not just beneficial for students but also brings fun and efficiency to the learning system. This allows every student to develop their language skills privately without distracting each other irrespective of the number of students.
A prototype of Harappa civilization, a solar and lunar model or even the map of Tasmania can all be found in this laboratory. Students are not left at their imagination or at the mercy of textbooks to understand the basics of history and geography. Teachers and students frequently spend their time on practical sessions in this laboratory.
School has recently introduced robotics session for students so as to train them to develop a scientific approach for problem solving. Once a week every student attends an hour long session of assembling and remote controlling a robot with the students from classes IV to VIII writing programmes for sensor-operated robots. The school has purchased 12 ThinkLab kits and has 11 professors from Science, Maths and Computer Science assisting students.
