## Using Ten Frames inside your Classroom

Ten-frames are relatively new to India. They are very useful at the beginning for learning the single-digit numbers. They also facilitate automatization of addition facts with single digit numbers. In addition, they can provide a lot of conceptual clarity wrt odd-even.

Three versions are included:

## Squaring the Dots Think into the Box

A square dot sheet has equally spaced dots aligned vertically and horizontally. Many interesting investigations can be devised with this simple learning material.

## Playing with Tiles Beginning to Tessellate

Many people are of the opinion that mathematics is only about numbers and number operations, and thus myths related to who can do mathematics and who cannot, abound. It is possible that children may struggle with numbers, but it is hard to believe that there could be a child who doesn’t recognize patterns. We see children creating patterns all the time using stones, sticks, leaves, flowers, finger prints, vegetable carvings, rubber stamp impressions and also mathematical shapes.

## Working with Visual Patterns - Lesson Plan

With the help of this Lesson Plan children will start understanding and appreciating visual patterns.

## Working with Visual Patterns - Worksheet

Some Practice questions to work with visual patterns.

## Working with Visual Patterns

Through this presentation children will develop an understanding of visual patterns.

## One Dimensional Cellular Automata: The Totalistic Approach

The topic of cellular automata has many interesting and wide ranging applications to real life problems emerging from areas such as image processing, cryptography, neural networks, developing electronic devices and modelling biological systems. In fact cellular automata can be a powerful tool for modelling many kinds of systems.

## Stitching and storytelling

Got a free period? You thought of helping your learners pick up stitching. Not from a utilitarian angle, but a genuine creative expression, you know stitching can weave magic. You also wish to tell a story. Well, here is a primer which does the same! Nandini Majumdar's minimal text & Zarina Khatun's amazing needlework tell the story like no other.

## What is the next number?

There is an interesting twist to this age old tale of finding what come next! The underlying question is this: given the initial (say) five terms of a sequence, can we say with any degree of certainty what the next term must be? Let’s say we have found a nice pattern in the given initial portion; can we be sure that the sequence has been generated with just that pattern in mind?

## Sums of Consecutive Natural Numbers

Swati Sircar and Sneha Titus, writing on the Sums of Consecutive Natural Numbers, show how mental mathematics becomes visual all of a sudden, and this Low Floor High Ceiling activity is sure to appeal to a variety of learning styles.
