CBSE Class 12 Informatics Practices Syllabus Project Work

The aim of the class project is to create tangible and useful IT applications. The learner may identify a real-world problem by exploring the environment. e.g. Students can visit shops/business places, communities or other organizations in their localities and enquire about functioning of the organization, and how data are generated, stored, and managed.
The learner can take data stored in csv or database file and analyze using Python libraries and generate appropriate charts to visualize.
Learners can use Python libraries of their choice to develop software for their school or any other social good.
Learners should be sensitized to avoid plagiarism and violation of copyright issues while working on projects. Teachers should take necessary measures for this. Any resources (data, image etc.) used in the project must be suitably referenced.
The project can be done individually or in groups of 2 to 3 students. The project should be started by students at least 6 months before the submission deadline.

Suggested Practical List

5.1 Data Handling

  1. Create a panda’s series from a dictionary of values and a ndarray
  2. Given a Series, print all the elements that are above the 75th percentile.
  3. Create a Data Frame quarterly sales where each row contains the item category, item name, and expenditure. Group the rows by the category and print the total expenditure per category.
  4. Create a data frame for examination result and display row labels, column labels data types of each column and the dimensions
  5. Filter out rows based on different criteria such as duplicate rows.
  6. Importing and exporting data between pandas and CSV file

5.2 Visualization

  1. Given the school result data, analyses the performance of the students on different parameters, e.g subject wise or class wise.
  2. For the Data frames created above, analyze, and plot appropriate charts with title and legend.
  3. Take data of your interest from an open source (e.g. data.gov.in), aggregate and summarize it. Then plot it using different plotting functions of the Matplotlib library.

5.3 Data Management

    1. Create a student table with the student id, name, and marks as attributes where the student id is the primary key.
    2. Insert the details of a new student in the above table.
    3. Delete the details of a student in the above table.
    4. Use the select command to get the details of the students with marks more than 80.
    5. Find the min, max, sum, and average of the marks in a student marks table.
    6. Find the total number of customers from each country in the table (customer ID, customer Name, country) using group by.
    7. Write a SQL query to order the (student ID, marks) table in descending order of the marks.
