MATH A. ACTIVITY - MAKE A MATHS TAMBOLA GAME/ BOARD GAME - An activity to enhance mental mathematics. 1. MathsTambola is a game where the objective is to strike off numbers on your card till you get a certain combination of lines or all numbers. It is a game of probability in which players mark off numbers on cards as the numbers are drawn randomly by a caller, the winner being the first person to mark off all their numbers. All you have to do is to use your creativity to prepare the following using the guidelines given below: a)Two Tambola tickets

A typical tambola ticket contains 27 spaces, arranged in nine columns by three rows. Each row contains five numbers and four blank spaces. Each column contains up to three numbers, which are arranged as follows:    

The first column contains numbers from 1 to 9 (or 10), The second column numbers from 10 (or 11) to 20, The third, 30 (or 31) to 40 and so on up until the last column, which contains numbers from 81 to 90. Algebraic expressions can also be used instead of the numbers. b) Question bank containing 30 questions on any Mathematical concepts learnt so far in classes 8 and 9 along with an answer key. The game is presided over by a caller, whose job it is to call out the numbers. In Math Tambola, Questions/sums related to Mathematics will be asked and according to the answer, the players strike off the number/answer marked in the ticket. 2

The different winning combinations are: Line – covering a horizontal line of five numbers on the ticket. Two Lines – covering any two lines on the same ticket. Full House – covering all fifteen numbers on the ticket. Here are few examples of the questions along with the answer key.

SOCIAL SCIENCE Values are essential for positive human behaviour .It is the greatest endeavour to imbibe values in children .Before becoming successful citizens, we should be good human beings Holidays are approaching, wherein the children can rejuvenate themselves. It’s the best time to fulfil all lacunae in ourselves and inculcate good habits. So children, get prepared to enjoy your holidays in a more recreational way Given below is a list of Values. You have to choose any two values and complete the two activities that are a part of your summer vacation project a) Doing your best b) Collaboration c) Respect d) Freedom e) Rights and responsibility f) Celebrating the nation g) Peace h) Acceptance of other i) Sensitivity towards environment j) Time management k) Caring Activity One Design a Board Game on any One of the values chosen by you Here are some easy steps that will help you create your own board game. It is not necessary to incorporate all ideas in your game. 1)

The game should be about the decisions we face in life, in which players are asked to choose the right

course of action in different circumstances and dilemmas. There are no right or wrong answers, but each choice has to be justified from a Human Values perspective in order to win points.

7

2)

Think of a theme for your game from the above values . Are you interested in creating a game that is

based on a skill, such as Pictionary, Scrabble or Clue? Or are you more interested in creating a path game that is purely based on luck and chance, such as snakes and Ladders? If so, will it be one where you are a pirate and must travel the seas to find lost treasure, or will you be trapped in haunted mansion and have to avoid the monsters and ghosts? Remember, the game should be based on values. 3)

Map out rules and directions for the game

a)

What is the minimum or maximum number of players

b)

How many spaces on the board / variations on the story will you need to keep the game interesting for

multiple players c)

How does the game end? Do you reach a final destinations (like in Candy land) or compete to

accumulate goodies (like in Monopoly) d)

Design a key wherein first option will justify a human value, second option will be neutral (no loss no

gain), third option wherein human values are not justified e)

Make sure to add start and finishing places and to set out a clear direction for the character(s) to travel

along. Decide whether or not to split or loop the path to add variation or extend the game time. f)

Positions on which to land: These can be designated by shapes (squares, circles, triangles) or drawn

objects/locations (stepping stones, islands, clouds). Make sure that some positions redirect players, instruct them to pick up cards, or cause them to gain/lose items. When designing positions that redirect players to other locations, be careful not to create any domino effect. (example: Go Back Two Spaces position that sends takes a player to a Move Ahead Five Spaces position). For a cleaner look, color-code the positions to represent different commands (as opposed to writing them out). g)

Playing cards: A randomly shuffled assortment of cards adds variation to an unchanging game pathway

by affecting the players in unexpected ways. A card often tells a quick story about an event that befalls a player and then changes his or her score / position / accumulated goods accordingly. Having different types of cards (ex. cards that change a player’s location, cards that change a player’s stats, cards that players can collect throughout the game to represent achievements, and/or cards that command players to do things in real life like dance, sing, do a cartwheel, help mother in the kitchen, etc.) will greatly increase the number of ways in which a game can unfold. h)

Apply the design to a base board. You can use a long sheet of paper, but it would be better to choose a

sturdier material such as cardboard, card stock, or poster board so that your game pieces won't get knockedover if there is a breeze. (If you do decide to use paper for your base it can be laminated so it's waterproof and won't get easily ripped apart.) If you don’t want to buy new material, use old pizza boxes, the cardboard in old binders, or even the board from an old game that you do not use anymore; just paint over the material or cover 8

with clean paper to make space for a new design. When you’re ready, decorate the board with the design that you sketched. i)

Create the game pieces. You can draw the images on paper, then tape or glue them to your preferred

material, such as light cardboard (the type used on cereal boxes); if making a game for family or friends, you might even use players’ photos. To make the pieces stand, cut out a strip of cardboard that you can fold into a 3D triangle (similar to picture frame stands), then stick to the back of the piece for support. Another way to make game pieces that stand is to glue craft foam to the bottom of the folded piece of paper. You could also use pieces from other game sets. You can make the character pieces in line with the place markers such as cards or tokens, draw these out as well. Good materials to use for the game cards are index cards or cardstock. Activity Two Make a poster on any One of the values mentioned above Or Make a collage of pictures showing good values

MATHEMATICS  Activity - Design a Math crossword puzzle Crossword puzzles are word puzzles in which you fill in a square grid with words, guessed by using clues provided. It is like a jigsaw puzzle of words, with hints. Along with Sudoku puzzles, crosswords are a rage world over. Crossword puzzles are fun to solve and create. It would require a mastery over vocabulary, deep knowledge of various subjects, a capacity to make wordplay and a lot of guile to come up with a devious crossword puzzle. Follow the guidelines given below to complete the crossword puzzle: 

      

One important rule of crossword puzzle to be kept in mind is that words are either filled vertically downwards or horizontally from left to right. The words that have to be filled vertically downwards, along with their clues are classified as 'Down', while the words which are filled horizontally along with their clues are classified as 'Across'. Select words that you intend to place in the grid. Let them be such, that they could be overlapped down and across each other. They should be valid referenced words. Clues have to be such that they indirectly hint at the word in a cryptic fashion. Avoid too many three or four- letter words. You may choose to select words according to a theme. Standard medium-sized puzzles that appear in dailies are 15x15 grids. Go for bigger ones of the dimensions of 17x17, 19x19, 21x21 or even a 23x23 grid. Crosswords must be made creatively on Colored Sheet. Make use of pictures to illustrate the words and clues in a better fashion.
