Number System (50 hrs.)
• Multiplication and division of integers (through patterns). Division by zero is meaningless
• Properties of integers (including identities for addition & multiplication, commutative, associative, distributive) (through patterns). These would include examples from whole numbers as well. Involve expressing commutative and associative properties in a general form. Construction of counterexamples, including some by children. Counter examples like
• Subtraction is not commutative.
• Word problems including integers (all operations)
(ii) Fractions and rational numbers:
• Multiplication of fractions
• Fraction as an operator
• Reciprocal of a fraction
• Division of fractions
• Word problems involving mixed fractions
• Introduction to rational numbers (with representation on number line)
• Operations on rational numbers (all operations)
• Representation of rational number as a decimal.
• Word problems on rational numbers (all operations)
• Multiplication and division of decimal fractions
• Conversion of units (length & mass)
• Word problems (including all operations)
• Exponents only natural numbers.
• Laws of exponents (through observing patterns to arrive at generalization.)
(i) am.an = am+n
(ii) (am)n = amn
Algebra (20 hrs.)
• Generate algebraic expressions (simple) involving one or two variables
• Identifying constants, coefficient, powers
• Like and unlike terms, degree of expressions e.g., x2y etc. (exponent≤3, number of variables)
• Addition, subtraction of algebraic expressions (coefficients should be integers).
• Simple linear equations in one variable (in contextual problems) with two operations (avoid complicated coefficients)
Ratio and Proportion (20 hrs.)
• Ratio and proportion (revision)
• Unitary method continued, consolidation, general expression.
• Percentage- an introduction.
• Understanding percentage as a fraction with denominator 100
• Converting fractions and decimals into percentage and vice-versa.
• Application to profit and loss (single transaction only)
• Application to simple interest (time period in complete years).
Geometry (60 hrs.)
• Pairs of angles (linear, supplementary, complementary, adjacent, vertically opposite) (verification and simple proof of vertically opposite angles)
• Properties of parallel lines with transversal (alternate, corresponding, interior, exterior angles)
(ii)Properties of triangles:
• Angle sum property (with notions of proof & verification through paper folding, proofs using property of parallel lines, difference between proof and verification.)
• Exterior angle property
• Sum of two sides of a its third side
• Pythagoras Theorem (Verification only)
• Recalling reflection symmetry
• Idea of rotational symmetry, observations of rotational symmetry of 2-D objects. (900, 1200, 1800)
• Operation of rotation through 900 and 1800 of simple figures.
• Examples of figures with both rotation and reflection symmetry (both operations)
• Examples of figures that have reflection and rotation symmetry and vice-versa
(iv)Representing 3-D in 2-D:
• Drawing 3-D figures in 2-D showing hidden faces.
• Identification and counting of vertices, edges, faces, nets (for cubes cuboids, and cylinders, cones). • Matching pictures with objects (Identifying names)
• Mapping the space around approximately through visual estimation.
• Congruence through superposition (examples-blades, stamps, etc.)
• Extend congruence to simple geometrical shapes e.g. triangles, circles.
• Criteria of congruence (by verification) SSS, SAS, ASA, RHS
(vi)Construction (Using scale, protractor, compass)
• Construction of a line parallel to a given line from a point outside it. (Simple proof as remark with the reasoning of alternate angles)
• Construction of simple triangles. Like given three sides, given a side and two angles on it, given two sides and the angle between them.
Mensuration (15 hrs.)
• Revision of perimeter, Circumference of Circle
Concept of measurement using a basic unit area of a square, rectangle, triangle, parallelogram and circle, area between two rectangles and two concentric circles.
Data handling (15 hrs.)
i. Collection and organization of data – choosing the data to collect for a hypothesis testing.
ii. Mean, median and mode of ungrouped data – understanding what they represent.
iii. Constructing barographs
iv. Feel of probability using data through experiments. Notion of chance in events like tossing coins, dice etc. Tabulating and counting occurrences of 1 through 6 in a number of
v. throws. Comparing the observation with that for a coin. Observing strings of throws, notion of randomness.
