Circles of Learning: Grade 5’s Practical Math Adventure

At Vidhya Peetham i-School, we believe in transforming theoretical knowledge into practical skills. This belief was vividly brought to life by our Grade 5 students, who embarked on a mathematical journey right within their homes.

Purpose: Applying Math to the Real World

After mastering the concept of circumference in their math classes, our students were eager to apply this knowledge to the real world. The task was simple yet engaging: find circular objects around the house and calculate their circumference as a part of circumference activity.

The Practical Application: Everyday Objects as Learning Tools

From car tyres to cycle wheels, and from clocks to traditional grinding stones, our students turned everyday household items into instruments of learning. They measured objects as diverse as plates, bowls, frisbee rings, hula hoops, coconut shells, and even the resonant mridangam! Each object presented a unique challenge and an opportunity to see math in action.

Outcomes: Circumference Activity Made Fun

The result was a delightful blend of learning and fun. Students not only honed their mathematical skills but also developed an appreciation for the application of these skills in daily life. They learned that math isn’t confined to textbooks; it’s a vital part of the world around them.

This circumference activity is a testament to our commitment to providing a holistic education that bridges the gap between academic concepts and practical utility. It’s initiatives like these that make Vidhya Peetham i-School stand out as one of the best CBSE schools in Salem.
