Acknowledgment

So a proposal was made to conduct workshops for elementary school teachers where the elementary school math material is covered with foundations. It soon became apparent that curriculum changes at the elementary school level will be more eﬀective. N. This workshop focused on teacher presentations of the methodology and content of mathematics. 2012. 2013.P. Attempts were made to develop material for the grade VI students attending the summer workshops to cover the elementary school mathematics material with insights in the foundations. Another Dayalbagh Primary School Mathematics Teachers Workshop was arranged in the period July 25. We only know that successful practice of any art or science requires and is based on a deep intuitive understanding of the foundations. Such an understanding of the fundamentals of mathematics is crucial in applications and for problem solving skills. Finally. This is acquired through contact with teachers and through self eﬀort and reﬂection on the subject. Teacher meetings were arranged(this included the Day Boarding School Math teachers and the elementary school math teachers) to exchange ideas as to how the content of these notes may be used in classroom activity. the books being used at present were critically examined on methodology and content. Bhatia February 15. 2012. Most of the existing textbooks commonly used in our schools and colleges are of little or no help in this. These workshops were carried out at the Distance Education Center during February 6-11. Encouragement and support of the REI Managing Committee in the above eﬀorts is gratefully acknowledged. The notes prepared for grade VI with the title ”Number Systems and Arithmetic” provided the material for these workshops. Notes prepared for this purpose titled ”Number Systems and Arithmetic” were ﬁrst used in summer workshops in 2011. Follow up primary school math teachers meetings brought about the proposal that WORKSHEETS for each of the grades I-V be prepared in Hindi for use in elementary school math teaching.ii ACKNOWLEDGMENT work.August 2. .

etc. We read the ﬁrst statement as ’two plus three equals ﬁve’ and the second as ’three plus two equals ﬁve’.. This is then written as 2 + 3 = 5 for the ﬁrst display and as 3 + 2 = 5 for the second display. This kind of line display identiﬁes the process of adding the three dot collection to the two dot collection. Thus for display and understanding we may identify the objects in a collection in any suitable convenient way. For example if we are counting almonds or apples we may use the letter A to identify each object. In general this property is described symbolically by m + n = n + m. Symbolically it is written as 2 + 3. Thus the following two pictures using the letter O instead of a dot represent the process of adding the number 3 to the number 2 to obtain the sum 2 + 3 = 5. Since both counts when added result in the same number 5. 3 + 7 = 7 + 3. we can mentally picture the process and come up with the count of the combined collection. irrespective of their individual counts. The last display shows the collection obtained by adding the second collection to the ﬁrst. We emphasize that counts are numbers and the counts do not depend on the nature of objects in a collection. And then to its right we display the collection of three dots. Now we straight count the combined collection in the last display and see that it has a count of ﬁve. The letter ’O’ may be used for any object. This property is named as ’the commutative property’ as it is true for the counts of any two collections.14 CHAPTER 1. The last statement expresses a property of addition. It produces the same display in either case. Thus. where m and n identify the counts of the two collections and m + n as well as n + m the count of the combined collection depending on how the two collections are line displayed for counting. That is why the two dot collection is displayed to the right of the three dot collection. O and O O O O O O O O O When the counts are small numbers. We may use our ﬁngers . 13 + 12 = 12 + 13. we learn that 2+3 = 3+2. CLASS 1 WORKSHEETS or as The next picture shows that the two collections have been combined to obtain a single collection of ﬁve dots The ﬁrst line display contains two dots. The second display indicates the process of adding the two dot collection to the three dot collection.

We see that every number has a successor. and 76 is the predecessor of 77. Note that the ﬁrst line in the table above contains all the counting numbers written using a single numeral. Observe that for each number there is a number that comes just after it. and 76 is just before 77. 0. The ending number is 9. . The succession of numbers written with three numerals begins with the number 100 and ends with 999 (nine hundred ninety nine). A number that comes just before a number is called its predecessor. and every number except 1 has a predessor. The number that comes just after a number is called its successor. the number that follows is 101 (one hundred one). CLASS 2 WORKSHEETS It is important to keep in mind the order in which the succession of numbers is written. They begin with the number 10 (ten) and end with the number 99 (ninety nine). . Note for example that 78 comes just after 77 and so 78 is the successor of 77. . The number that follows the number 99 is 100 (one hundred) and it uses the three numerals 1.

we write the successive numbers beginning with 1 below each letter as shown below: D 1 A 2 Y 3 A 4 L 5 B 6 A 7 G 8 The last counting number used in this pairing is 8. An example of pairing which does not use a line display is . This number 8 is the count of the collection of letters in the word ’DAYALBAGH”. Thereafter. Several examples of pairing and assigning the count follow 2. If it is 35. 3. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 See that the numbers used in pairing are the successive counting numbers beginning with 1 and ending with 8. The last number used in this pairing is 8 and this number is the count of the collection of dots in the display. Line displays of objects in a collection are helpful in counting. CLASS 2 WORKSHEETS then put this second picked apple aside and pick another from the basket and mentally pair it with the number 3 (again the successor of 2). The number 8 is the assigned count of the collection of dots. i. has no more apples left. As an example consider the word ’Dayalbagh’. It is not necessary to line display the objects in a collection as long as the pairing of objects in the collection with successive numbers beginning with 1 is clearly shown.e. each adjacent dot is paired with the successor of the last number with which the previous dot was paired. To answer the question ’How many letters are used in the word ’Dayalbagh’ ?. It is customary to start be pairing the object on the left on the line with the number 1.3. The process of picking and pairing with successive numbers continues until the last apple has been picked and paired with a number that is the successor of the previously used number for pairing.22 CHAPTER 2. so the basket of apples is now empty. The picture below shows certain big dots arranged on a line (you may think of the dots as apples or almonds or any other objects in a collection whose count is to be found out). The numbers below each dot is the number with which that dot is paired. Consider counting the number of letters used in an English word. The process of pairing starts by pairing the ﬁrst dot on the left with the number 1. 2. then the count is 35. This was the case in picking apples from a basket and pairing each pick with a successive number starting with 1.1 Examples of Straight Counting 1. If the last number used for pairing is 7 then the count of apples is 7.

For example the count of successive numbers beginning with 7 and ending with 16 is seen to be 10 as seen from the pairing 7 1 8 2 9 3 10 4 11 5 12 6 13 7 14 8 15 9 16 10 .23 P (1) A(2) Q(3) S (4) B (5) C (6) R((7) Here we ﬁnd the count of the letters on a Board or in a picture. It is important to note that the count of a collection of successive numbers that begin with 1 and ends with a speciﬁed number is that speciﬁed number. THE COUNT OF A COLLECTION. The ending number in this situation is the assigned count of the collection of successive numbers that begins with 1. The last number used in the pairing is the count of the collection. If a collection of successive numbers starts with any other number diﬀerent from 1 its count has to be found in the manner above indicated.3. etc. we pair each object in the collection with successive numbers starting with 1. This is shown in the table below for ending numbers up to 12 (twelve): collection 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 count 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 7 7 7 7 7 7 8 8 8 8 8 9 9 9 9 10 10 10 11 11 12 4.. For ﬁnding a count of a collection. 3.2. Starting with any one of the letters which is paired with the number 1 shown in a bracket after the chosen letter. we continue picking letters and pairing them with successive numbers 2. until all the letters have been paired with a number. The last number used in the pairing is the number 7 and it is the (assigned) count of the collection of letters. WORKSHEET 3: STRAIGHT COUNTING.

Combining collections of objects and the resulting relationship between the counts has motivated the concept of addition of numbers. The result of adding the two numbers 2 and 3 can be expressed in the form ”2 + 3 = 5” or ”3 + 2 = 5”. Since both sums equal the same number 5, we conclude that the sums are equal, i.e., 3 + 2 = 2 + 3. This conclusion is a property of the operation of addition. It is called the commutative property as it holds for all numbers. It is expressed symbolically by writing m + n = n + m, where m and n stand for any given numbers. Thus without ﬁnding the actual count of the combined collection we can say that 5 + 6 = 6 + 5, 123 + 7 = 7 + 123, etc., N otationf orSubtraction: A basket has 5 apples. We remove (subtract) 2 apples from this basket. The symbol 5 − 2 is used and it identiﬁes the count of apples in the basket after removing 2 apples from the basket. The symbol is simply read as ”ﬁve minus two” or as ”2 subtracted from 5”. The problem of ﬁnding the number represented by the symbol ’5 − 2’ is solved by straight counting to get the answer 3. This means that 5 − 2 = 3.

CHAPTER 2. CLASS 2 WORKSHEETS

2.4.1

The concept of an empty collection and its count

When we think of a collection we think of certain objects. Thus ’Almonds in a bag’, ’Chairs in a room’, ’children in a class’, ’Bananas in a bunch’, are all examples of collections. The count of a collection refers to the objects only. The bag, the room, the class, and the bunch in the above examples were containers of those objects that were counted. Indeed, if the same objects were placed in a diﬀerent container, the count will be the same. Now consider the concept of subtraction and the notation used for it. Subtraction identiﬁes the count of a collection after removal of some objects from a given collection. Thus ’3 − 1’ identiﬁes the count of a collection after one object has been removed from the collection that had three objects before removal. If we had removed all three objects, we clearly can identify the result by the symbol ’3 − 3’. However, now we have an empty container and no number (count) to identify the symbol ’3 − 3’ as a number. To rectify this situation, one introduces the notion of an empty collection: ’An empty collection is a container with no objects in it’. Now note that we have used the numeral ’0’ like an alphabet to write numbers. The un-ending succession of numbers used for counting starts with the number ’1’ but does not contain 0 as a number for counting. We have conceptualized an empty collection as a container without any objects in it. We now assign the numeral ’0’ as a count of an empty collection and from now on we call ’0’ as a number just like the numerals 1, 2, 3, etc are numbers. It allows us to answer questions like ’3 − 3 =?’, ’234 − 234 =?’, etc., by writing ’3 − 3 = 0’, ’234 − 234 = 0’, etc. We will see later the numeral 0 has a deep meaning in the notation that we use for numbers. Each of the ten numerals in a number has a place in that number that will identify a value called the place value. Since the system uses ten numerals we call it as ’Base ten number system’. By conceiving 0 as a number we have extended the succession of the counting numbers to the un-ending succession of numbers displayed below

The extended succession of numbers 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 1 11 21 31 41 51 61 71 81 91 . 2 12 22 32 42 52 62 72 82 92 . 3 13 23 33 43 53 63 73 83 93 . 4 14 24 34 44 54 64 74 84 94 . 5 15 25 35 45 55 65 75 85 95 . 6 16 26 36 46 56 66 76 86 96 . 7 17 27 37 47 57 67 77 87 97 . 8 18 28 38 48 58 68 78 88 98 . 9 19 29 39 49 59 69 79 89 99 .

We call this as the succession of whole numbers. Here the successor of the number 0 is the number 1 and 0 + 1 = 1 and 1 + 0 = 1. The table that follows is called the addition table. It identiﬁes all the sums like 3 + 5, 7 + 5, 0 + 0, etc,. To see that ’2 + 5 = 7’, we look at the underlined ’2’ in the left most column, and the underlined ’5’ in the top row. The answer ’7’ appears at the junction of the row containing the underlined ’2’ and the column containing the underlined ’5’. ADDITION TABLE + 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 2 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 3 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 4 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 5 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 6 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 7 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 8 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 9 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

The table contains answers to one hundred sums. Students should establish all these sums by the method of straight counting. They should clearly conceptualize the correctness of sums like ’0 + 0 = 0’, ’2 + 0 = 0 + 2 = 2’ using the concept of an empty collection and its count.

Thus 5 > 3. we write ’m > n’ whenever the number m comes after the number n in the succession of numbers. .. In such a write-up the three dots between numbers represent the successive numbers between the number on the left of the dots and the number on the .1 Using the symbols ’=’.. ’equal to’ that we use in our every day language to express a form of comparison of two objects. The order among successive whole numbers is expressed as follows 2... and ’=’ are used in a manner to give meaning to the expressions like ’less than’. So far we have used numbers to express counts. < n < . This means that the number m comes after the number n in the succession of whole numbers.6. ’smaller than’... ..

We read the statement ’m > n’ as ’m is greater than ’n’. All these statements mean only that a count of 10 is greater than a count of 8.. Thus 3 < 5 and 69 < 75. When there is a need to emphasize that letters ’a’ and ’b’ represent diﬀerent objects we express it by writing ’a = b’.. and 75 > 69.? 2. and ’<’ ’a = b’ simply means that the letters ’a’ and ’b are used for or represent the same object.

The second display has one column of 10 objects and a column of 2 objects for a count of 12.2 Exercises 1. where the objects in each of the three rows are displayed in three columns * * * * * * * * * * * * This tells us that the count of objects is the same in each display. Actual counting of objects in any of the displays shows that the count of objects in each display is 12.Thus actual counting conﬁrms the same. 1 × 9. 0×9 . Use any means to calculate: 9 × 9.9. 8 × 9. We conclude form this that 3 × 4 = 4 × 3 a property of multiplication called the commutative property. WORKSHEET 8: MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION 47 The same objects can also be displayed in the another form as below. 3 × 9. 5 × 9. This provides a good visual means for ﬁnding the number 3 × 4 or 4 × 3.2. For example. Such rearrangement of objects in a display can be used to calculate the number represented by a product of two numbers. 4 × 9. 2 × 9. 6 × 9. 2.

The process of taking out and giving two almonds will stop when you are left with less than two almonds in the bag. means ﬁnding the maximum number of times you can subtract 2 from 9 and to know what number is lefyt after subtraction process is complete. Question: Why will the process stop? Answer: Becuse you can not take out two almonds now(the bag is left with less than two almonds).48 CHAPTER 2. It identiﬁes all the products like 3 × 5. and how many almonds were left in the bag?’ You can answer this question if you were counting the number of ﬁeld workers who got two almonds each.3 Visualizing Division and its Notation Division is repeated subtraction. we look at the underlined ’2’ in the left most column. say 9 by 2. If the count of almonds in the bag is known you may repeatedly subtract the number 2 from the count of almonds in the bag until the result of repeated subtraction is 0 oe 1(the two numbers less than 2). The table that follows is called the multiplication table. You can continue to take out and give two almonds to a ﬁeld worker as long as there are two or more almonds left in the bag.9. etc. That is when the process stops. To see that ’2 × 5 = 12’. You repeatedly take out two almonds at a time (perhaps to distribute to people working in the ﬁelds). Dividing. The answer ’10’ appears at the junction of the row containing the underlined ’2’ and the column containing the underlined ’5’. and the underlined ’5’ in the top row. CLASS 2 WORKSHEETS 2.

The repeated subtraction can be shown as 2 9 2 7 2 5 2 3 2 1 1 1 1 1 4 Step 1 2 3 4 The right column shows the number of times the number 2 has been subtracted in the marked step. The 1 at the bottom of the second column is the remainder after the fourth step.2. This can be done by putting a vertical bar after every two successir eobjrcts.9. The result may be written in one of two forms A. The 4 at the bottom of the third column is the sum of the entries in the third column. Each entry showing the number of times 2 was subtracted. This can help reduce the number of steps in which the ﬁnal result is obtained. At each step we may subtract 2 any number of times as long as subtracation can be carried over. For example. 9 = 4 × 2 + 1. starting from the right or left as shown below * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Each display shows that you can subtract 2 from 9 four times and will be left with one object.

Inches and centimeters are only two of the commonly used units of measure.10. 1. One may indeed designate any length as a unit length and make a scale or ruler that uses the chosen length as a unit of measure.10. The common feature of all types of measures is that they are stated by assigning a number and a unit of measure. 3.1 The measuring scale or Ruler..2. There are measures of areas and volumes. 5. In the centemeter ruler the ﬁrst one centemeter segment is shown divided unto ten equal parts and the remaining one centemeter segments are shown divided into two equal parts. . The segment between 0 and 1 is assigned the measure 1 unit and is called the chosen unit segment.

Thus the length of the segment P Q. and we write AB = AC + BC .2 Principles of measurements of lengths 1. CLASS 2 WORKSHEETS The choice of points marked 0 and 1 is arbitrary. . . 4. The segment between the points 0 and 1 is called the chosen unit segment. This segment is the chosen unit of maeasure (like the inch or the centemeter). and the segment between 1 and 2 equals (has legth equal to) the segment between 0 and 1. This reading gives length of the segment as a number of the units (inches or centimeters). the segment AB is called the sum of the segments AC and BC . After this choice the point marked 2 is chosen so that 1 is between 2 and 0. To measure a segment P Q as shown below P Q one alligns the end point P with 0 on the ruler and reads the mark on the ruler with which Q gets alligned. and we write AC = AB − CB . and the seqment between the point and its predesessor equals the segment between 0 and 1. 2. the segment AC is seen as being obtained by removing (subtracting) the segment CB from the segment |AB . .

When the unit segment between 0 and 1 is divided into two equal parts. an area into two equal areas. a weight 1 (one half) of the into two equal weights.. on a given curve or line or surface. The idea of a point is represented by a dot. Each of these four equal triangles has area 1 4 unit squares. These are not deﬁned (in spite of many books containing their so called deﬁnitions).1 POINTS: On a clear night the stars on the background of the sky are perceived as so many shiny dots. Thus curves.

ceiling and walls. No physical representation gives any reasonable idea of space. The use of the word ‘most’ suggests that there may be exceptional points on a curve.13. An end point of a curve is a point such that one can only move to the point or from the .3 SPACE: We think of space as a collection of all points.58 CHAPTER 2. a rubber band. One must keep in mind that any physical object can only represent a part of a geometric plane. Thus the drawing or sketch obtained by moving a pen (or pencil) on a piece of paper provides a representation of a physical curve. Each particle of air in the room representing a point in space. though we think of space as the interior of the room we may be in. The room is indeed limited by ﬂoor. A simple type of exceptional point is an end point.4 Curves and Paths A piece of string. whereas space has no such limitation. a path in a jungle. running track in a school playground. or any smooth ﬂat surface like the ﬂoor or the wall of a room. the chalk board. An air plane moving through space moves on a curve in space. because planes extend indeﬁnitely. a path around a lake. 2. a river as seen from the window of a high ﬂying airplane. The following are examples of curves: Curves have the inportant property that while moving along the curve one can move through most points on the curve in one direction or its opposite direction. the top of a table. CLASS 2 WORKSHEETS 2.13. Table top and geometric plane 2. all suggest the idea of a curve.2 PLANES: The idea of a plane is obtained by observing the surface of a calm lake.13.

5 Simple open and Simple closed Curves An open curve is distinguished by the property that for any two points A and B on the curve. Thus a child going to school from home covers the path (home to school) in one direction and covers (or retraces) the same path (school to home) in the opposite direction. We shall use the word ’path’ for a curve or part of a curve along which one may move from one point to another without reversing direction and passing each point of the path exactly once.13. Some more examples of simple open curves are A Line A B Segment with end points A and B A Ray with end point A A Angle with vertex A Angle with vertex A A . The totality of all streets being the curve. Here are some examples of curves with two end points (dots represent end points). if the only exceptional points (if any) are end points. 2. GEOMETRY 59 point but not through the point. Thus the following ﬁgures show a curve with a direction of motion indicated by an arrow. It is called simple. A street map of a town or city showing all the streets is a general example of a curve that has many exceptional points. On a curve or path we shall indicate the direction of movement (when necessary) by means of an arrow. namely the crossings of streets. Thus paths are simple open curves. A Path or a track is part of a curve with the property that one may move along the path from one point to another in one direction or in the opposite direction.2.13. Here the path (home to school) is part of the curve that represents all roads in the neighborhood in which the home and school are located. there is only one way or path to move from A to B without retracing any part of the path or moving through any point of the path more than once.

but many many simple open curves with end points A and B . The following are some general examples of curves (exceptional points that are not end points are marked by a dot): A path is said to represent a simple closed curve if one can ‘travel’ (or walk) along the path and get back to the starting point without retracing any part of the path or going through any point on the path more than once. a ray. In other words two given points determine a unique segment with the two given points as end points and also a unique line that contains the two points.These properties may be thought of as intuitively clear. CLASS 2 WORKSHEETS A line. .6 A characteristic property of lines and segments It is important to observe that for any two points A and B . The following are examples of simple closed corves: 2. They are accepted as true in School Geometry (also called Euclidean Geometry).14 Plane Curves In School Geometry one mainly studies curves that lie in a plane. and are part of a collection of accepted rules (also called axioms) of Euclidean Geometry. there is exactly one segment with end points A and B . although there may be many many si mple open curves (with or without end points) that contain the two points. a segment. Two other examples of simple open curves with end points A and B are: B B A A 2.60 CHAPTER 2. Moreover. Observe also that a line has no end points.13. there is only one line that contains the two points. The most common examples of such paths are a path around a lake or the oval shaped running track in a school playground. All curves that are drawn on a chalk board or piece of paper are plane curves in the plane of the chalk board or the paper. or an angle are basic common examples of simple open curves. This means that all points on the curve are in a ﬁxed plane.

Other noteworthy simple closed curves in a plane that are of great interest and importance are. as three points which are not on the same line determine a plane.. identify all three sides and angles of this triangle. and C as marked C Side with end points A and C A B The angle at vertex B is marked. a circle. Many are made of segments like the following 1.2. A triangle is formed by three points. The triangle below has vertices A. Any two sides with a common vertex represent an angle of the triangle. each of which is called a vertex of the triangle. a square. The side marked is the segment with end points A and C . PLANE CURVES 61 Most common examples that are studied are of simple closed curves in a plane. i. A line and a point that is not on the line also determine a unique plane. TRIANGLES:Triangles are the most common and also perhaps most important examples of simple closed curves. Each side of a triangle is a segment with two of the vertices as end points.14. It has three sides and three angles. As an exercise. Some other examples of triangles are Every triangle is necessarily a plane curve. only one plane can contain three points that are not on a line. A SQUARE: . This means that only one plane can contain a line and a point that is not on that line. a rectangle. This is so. Their shapes are shown below 2. B .e. and an ellipse.

MORE ELLIPSES: A deeper study of these forms and disinguishing them from other forms and shapes the concept of equality of segments and angles as well as the notion of a right angle is used (this does not require measurements of segments and angles).14.2.1 Equality of Curves in a Plane: We call two planer curves as being the same or equal if the trace of one ﬁts exactly the other. if 2.

. If it does. one makes a trace of one of the curves and then sees if the trace ﬁts the other curve exactly.64 CHAPTER 2. As examples consider the segment with end points A and B shown above and its trace. The traces are drawn on a thin (or tracing) paper placed over the curve. In these two case. The curve is visible through the thin paper placed over it and one draws an exact copy of the curve on the thin paper with a pen or pencil. A Segment Trace of segment A B B The picture below shows an angle and the trace of the same angle. CLASS 2 WORKSHEETS traces shown below. otherwise they are un-equal. Three possible situations arise when we try to place and ﬁt the trace with three segments shown below with end points C and D. In Case 1 and Case 3 the trace does not ﬁt the segment with end points C and D. Case 1 C Segment Trace of segment A Case 2 C Segment Trace of segment A Case 3 C Segment Trace of segment A D B D B D B Only in Case 2 the trace of segment with end points A and B ﬁts exactly the segment with end points C and D. The traces are shown as a dashed segment and dashed angle. the two segments are not equal. Trace of Angle Angle To assertain if two curves are equal (this means that one is an exact copy of the other). then the two curves are equal (or same). In this case the two segments are equal.
