1. Preamble

"Green Games' is a selection of Environmental Education games-old and new-which have proved to be effective and popular with both adults and children. Some of the games in this manual have been developed by CEE. Some others are adaptations of popular EE games, modified to suit the Indian context. Most games in the manual need little inputs in terms of materials. They are also flexible enough to be played with larger groups of players, like in a school or a college setting.

“How can I make my classes interesting?”

“Are there activities for making students more enthusiastic?”

These are questions often asked by teachers in myriad schools. Fortunately, there does exist a number of activities and games that could make classroom teaching stimulating and motivate students to learn better so why not take a look?

Many scientific concepts can be understood and demonstrated through simple experiments, using locally available low-cost material. This article presents a few simple but exciting experiments that can be used to understand foundational principles in physics.

By cutting the end of a straw you can create a reed instrument that you can actually play a tune on. You can also learn some things about the science of sound and music.

Also look at this video to make a reed based flute only with straws. Looks simple but you need to try this with your students.

In this edition of ‘Adventures’ we study a few miscellaneous problems, mostly from the Pre-Regional Mathematics Olympiad (PRMO; this year’s PRMO was conducted on August 19 in centres all over the country). As usual, we pose the problems first and present solutions later.

Factors and multiples, tables and long division – students who are relieved at mastering these in numbers are confounded when the same topics rear their head in algebra. Here is a nice collection of problems that allow students to play with algebraic expressions and study them through the lens of divisibility.

For the middle school student, the transition from arithmetic to algebra is often quite daunting. In grade VI, the concept of a ‘variable’ is encountered for the first time. This is the stage where either a child embraces the newly introduced ‘Algebra’ or gets overwhelmed with the idea of numbers being replaced by letters of the alphabet. This is also the stage where the students learn to solve equations and find the value(s) of the unknown(s).
