tapes, videos, multimedia, physical objects and 3D models. More

Mathematics Laboratory - Mathematics has been central to all learning system from time immemorial. Over the centuries, mathematics has developed as a discipline of study with a focus, a purpose and a scheme. The various inputs of learning of mathematics have aimed at developing certain basic and essential skills for its use in daily life as well as in furtherance of knowledge.
Over the years, an apparent complexity seems to have appeared in the content and the processes involved in the learning of mathematics especially at school level. Concepts of mathematics are seen as difficult to understand and appreciate, thanks to some myth associated in the transaction of the curriculum. Fear for the learning of the subject increases the resistance to the learning process. The situation needs to be attended to. The remedy lies in creating a right ambience for the learning of the subject. Conceptual understanding in the subject of mathematics in highly desirable and the components of spatial understanding and logical reasoning lay the foundation in the student for developing his analytical skills, to co-relate and apply. For this reason the CBSE has endeavoured to launch the idea of mathematics laboratory in schools. Mathematics laboratory in schools helps in redesigning the transaction of the curriculum in which the paradigm of learning would help in developing a familiarity and ownership of the subject. It helps in creating a conducive environment in the class room where the learner learns the basic & essential concepts and skills by doing simple activities. Most of the skills could easily be developed by using indigenous materials like paper, sticks, pins, thread, cardboard and several others simple locally available materials. The main objective of the laboratory is to promote critical thinking and ability to approach a problem in different ways. It calls for firing the imagination of the learners so that they are creative and contributive. In mathematics laboratory, the processes are more important than the products. It is therefore essential that students are exposed to think differently and approach problems without any fear. It calls for taking the concepts of mathematics beyond the limitations of text books. Thus, the open ended approach, carried out with a sense of sincerity of purpose could bring about an entirely positive learning atmosphere in the schools.
The CBSE has also introduced the concept of PEC cards which are meant for teachers teaching at the primary level and are an effective tool for strengthening the transaction of Physical education in schools. The PEC card can be used by teachers of others subjects also. Each card is aimed at providing the essential information needed for engaging all students of the concerned class in the selected game/activity. The card specifies the abilities to be focused by the particular activities, the activities to be organized, the process of organizing the activities, equipment that will be needed, safety measures to be taken and the skills to be developed. This new concept aims to build a healthy and fit generation by initiating a trend of joyful learning.
