Acknowledgment

The author is most grateful and most humbly acknowledges the motivation, encouragement and advice provided by Professor Prem Saran Satsangi Sahab, the chairman of the Education Advisory Committee, Dayalbagh. It was at his urging during my visit to Dayalbagh in the summer of the year 2004 that I got associated with the Day Boarding School in Dayalbagh. His remark that our students lack proper understanding of the fundamentals (or foundations) of mathematics has since motivated my association and work at the Day Boarding School. The Day Boarding School in Dayalbagh caters to students in grades VIXII. My initial work, naturally therefore, concentrated on the development of foundational materials and workshops on the foundations of school mathematics suitable for these levels. The notes prepared by me for the ongoing summer mathematics workshops at the Day Boarding School were published by the Dayalbagh Educational Institute (deemed university) in 2010 in book form with the title ”Foundations of School Mathematics”. This book has three chapters, namely, 1. Sets and Counting, 2. Geometry and Measurement, and 3. The Real Numbers and the Number Line. This book provides the basis for the ongoing mathematics workshops for grades VI-XII. Further ongoing work for Grades VIXII is motivated by the exhortation of Professor Prem Saran Satsangi Sahab made on the report of the workshops submitted on July 3, 2007: “I hope the participating math-teachers would produce small text books that focus on the most powerful and generative ideas with emphasis on concepts and fundamentals presented in a careful sequence, as opposed to bulky text books cramped with forgettable details”. During these summer workshops, it became clear that the incoming students in grade VI were not ready for the foundational material as exposed in the above noted book and summer workshops. Moreover, the medium of instruction in our schools being Hindi made it diﬃcult for the students to comprehend the material, particularly at grade levels VI-IX. Though progress has been and is being made with the help of some Hindi translations, but it is slow. Furthermore, we realize that most current text books cater to the syllabi but do not provide the insights and understanding of the foundations which the great teachers, mathematicians, and successful practitioners of mathematics use to do their i

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

The main goal of Primary School Mathematics education is to bring home to the students effectively the meaning of these numbers and the basic operations of addition. multiplication and division on them through their use in counting and measuring. be it a ball. six. before joining an elementary school. three. The number ‘ten’ is the count of the ﬁngers on both hands. iii . Here the number ‘one’ is the count of any collection of objects that contains a single object. This lesson essentially begins when the mother makes the child learn the number ‘one’ associated with a single object. The activity of counting and measuring is carried out primarily through the use of numbers called ’the natural numbers’ and ’the fractions’. and ten’. two. ﬁve. 2013.

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

The relationship between these three numbers is expressed in the form 7 − 2 = 5.. however... 15 + 7 = . Line displays help in understanding the process and in counting.. Addition and subtraction are done using straight counting.. Pictorially show that 12 + 1 = 13. It should be kept in mind that when we remove all objects from a given collection we will be left with no remaining objects. The symbol ’−’ identiﬁes subtraction (or removal).

The succession of numbers written with three numerals begins with the number 100 and ends with 999 (nine hundred ninety nine). Although not exhibited in the table. Also observe that 1 comes just before 2. So. CLASS 2 WORKSHEETS It is important to keep in mind the order in which the succession of numbers is written. 8 is the successor of 7. . We see that every number has a successor. A number that comes just before a number is called its predecessor. and 99 is the predecessor of 100. 1 is the predecessor of 2. . 1 has no predecessor as there is no counting number that comes before 1. and every number except 1 has a predessor. The ending number is 9. Thereafter comes the successive numbers that use four numerals. They begin with the number 10 (ten) and end with the number 99 (ninety nine). Similarly. They begin with 1 and end with 9. Observe that for each number there is a number that comes just after it. and 76 is just before 77. the number that follows is 101 (one hundred one). .

An example of pairing which does not use a line display is . 2. This was the case in picking apples from a basket and pairing each pick with a successive number starting with 1. The numbers below each dot is the number with which that dot is paired. The process of pairing starts by pairing the ﬁrst dot on the left with the number 1. 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. Line displays of objects in a collection are helpful in counting. then the count is 35. each adjacent dot is paired with the successor of the last number with which the previous dot was paired.22 CHAPTER 2.1 Examples of Straight Counting 1. so the basket of apples is now empty.e. 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). 3. Consider counting the number of letters used in an English word. 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. If the last number used for pairing is 7 then the count of apples is 7. has no more apples left. 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). 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. Several examples of pairing and assigning the count follow 2. The number 8 is the assigned count of the collection of dots.3. i. 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. Thereafter. It is customary to start be pairing the object on the left on the line with the number 1. As an example consider the word ’Dayalbagh’. To answer the question ’How many letters are used in the word ’Dayalbagh’ ?. This number 8 is the count of the collection of letters in the word ’DAYALBAGH”. If it is 35. The last number used in this pairing is 8 and this number is the count of the collection of dots in the display.

The ending number in this situation is the assigned count of the collection of successive numbers that begins with 1.2. The last number used in the pairing is the number 7 and it is the (assigned) count of the collection of letters. we pair each object in the collection with successive numbers starting with 1.3. 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. Starting with any one of the letters which is paired with the number 1 shown in a bracket after the chosen letter. 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. until all the letters have been paired with a number. 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. The last number used in the pairing is the count of the collection. we continue picking letters and pairing them with successive numbers 2. 3. 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.

We may line display the objects in the following form (without showing the boxes). add) the apples from the basket on the right to the basket on the left. we may start with the display of objects in a collection whose count is expressed as a sum of two numbers: Consider the objects of a collection whose count is 2 + 3 and it indicates that the collection is obtained by adding a collection of 3 objects to a collection of 2 objects. The basket on the right has three apples in it.26 CHAPTER 2. The result is represented by the picture Note that the left basket has ﬁve apples (Why?) and the right basket is empty (Why?). The problem of ﬁnding the number represented by the symbol ’5 + 3’ is solved by straight counting to get the answer 8. For the visualization of the number ’2 + 3’. In this case we will use the symbol ’3 + 2’ to represent the count of apples after the move. A pictorial illustration of the process of addition using dots (think of each dot as representing an apple) is as follows: The picture represents two baskets of apples. This means that 5 + 3 = 8.e. The symbol is simply read as ”ﬁve plus three” or as ”3 added to 5”. Now note that both symbols ’2 + 3’ and 5 represent the count of the apples in the left basket after completing the process of moving apples from the right basket to the left basket. We may indeed want to move the apples in the left basket (that has two apples) to the basket on the right (that has three apples). The basket on the left has two apples (represented by two dots). . The count of the apples in the left basket (after the move) is 5. The symbol ’5 + 3’ is used and it identiﬁes the count of apples in the basket after we have added the 3 apples in the basket. We move (i. This results in the right basket having ﬁve apples and so we write ’3 + 2 = 5’. CLASS 2 WORKSHEETS apples in the basket after we have removed some apples from that basket?” Subtraction answers this question. We put (place or add) 3 more apples in this basket. Note that the left basket is now empty. The resulting picture will be The result of moving (adding) two apples in the left basket to the three apples in the right basket is now represented by the symbol ’3 + 2’. Straight counting is used to ﬁnd the answer. since we now are adding two apples to the basket that already has three apples. and the result of addition along with the resulting notation. Notation for Addition: A basket has 5 apples. The examples that follow explain the underlying notation for addition and subtraction. This says that the result of adding 3 to 2 is 5. This shows that the sum ’2 + 3’ number is the same as the number 5 and we write ’2 + 3 = 5’.

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.

The process of of subtracting a single item from a collection (this means subtracting 1 from a number) whose count is given may be displayed as shown in the two examples below: − 4 ∗ 3 and 4 − 234 ∗ 233 Note that 3 is the predecessor of 4. Straight counting tells us that 4 + 1 = 5. We recognize now that 5 is the successor of 4. and pronounce that he has ﬁve coins. the child starts with the count two of the coins in one pocket and continue to straight count by recalling the next three successive numbers three. CLASS 2 WORKSHEETS 2. For example. How many coins does the child possess? If the question is put to the child. and ﬁve to triumphantly say that he has ﬁve coins. if the count of a collection is 4 and we add a single item to it. say the count three. and 23 is the successor of 22. and continue to straight count by recalling the next two successive numbers four and ﬁve that come after three.. . namely Subtracting 1 from a non zero number gives its predecessor.1 Adding or Subtracting 1 Adding 1 to a number is motivated by adding a single item to a given collection. And if we start with a count of 22 and add one item then the count after addition is 22 + 1. Straight counting gives the predecessor in this case. and 233 is the predecessor of 234. namely. The count of the collection after adding a single item is obtained by adding 1 to the count of the collection before the addition.30 CHAPTER 2. he may start with the count of the coins in one pocket. and 22 + 1 = 23.

Subtracting 1 from a number is motivated by removing a single item from a nonempty collection. then the count after addition is 4 + 1. Adding 1 to a number gives its successor.5 Worksheet 5: Using Straight Counting to Add or Subtract A child has two coins in one pocket and three in the other pocket. consider removing a single item from a non empty collection. This points to the universal rule for subtracting 1 from a non zero number (remember that we can not remeove any item from an empty collection).

we notice that for answering ’3 + 2 =?’. Illustration + 2 2. Under the ﬁrst star is the number 3 showing that when we add one object to the given two the count becomes 3.5.

He has thus pronounced the two successive numbers that come after ’3’ to answer the question. and 5 that come after 2.5. 2 + 2 = 4. in answering 2 + 3 =?. we can write 3 + 2 = 3 + (1 + 1). the child loudly says ’four. Since 2 = 1 + 1.2 Adding any number In the example of the child at the beginning. Finally adding the third star we get ’2 + 3 = 5’. the child loudly says ’three. We may illustrate this as + 3 ∗ 4 ∗ 5 The illustration in fact answers the two questions ’3 + 1 =?’ and ’3 + 2 =?’. This is illestrated below + 2 ∗ 3 ∗ 4 ∗ 5 In this illustration we are adding three objects represented by three stars in the ﬁrst row to the two objects whose count 2 is noted as the ﬁrst number in the second row. 4.

2. This is an important property of addition and we call it the Associative Property of Addition. however. and then to add the third number 6 to the sum of the ﬁrst two. Both calculations tell us that the count of apples in the box is the number 15. p it is stated in the form (m + n) + p = m + (n + p) The associative ptroperty of addition is the second important property of addition. In this fashion we calculate 4 + 5 + 6 = (4 + 5) + 6 = 9 + 6 = 15. For any three numbers m. m+n=n+m The commutative together with the associative property of addition ensure that all the six symbolic expressions at the beginning of this section represent the same number. We could also carry out the calculation by ﬁrst adding the last two numbers. Note that this gives meaning to the symbol ’4 + 5 + 6’. The calculation can be made by any of the two ways of calculation that were used above to calculate the sum ’4+5+6’. The method certainly works because we add only two numbers at a time throughout the process. . WORKSHEET 6: COUNTING IN GROUPS AND THE PLACE VALUE NOTATION41 We expect each of these symbols to represent the same count. Indeed as we expect. So we calculate 4 + 5 + 6 = 4 + (5 + 6) = 4 + 11 = 15. First. namely. The important observation is that each of two expressions ’(4 + 5) + 6’ and ’4 + (5 + 6)’ allows us to calculate the required count and they both give us the same number.7. we would like to use this knowledge to carry out the addition of three numbers. The method also tells us how to calculate sums containing more than three numbers. + . So we write. The ﬁrst was the Commutative Property of addition of any two numbers m and n. This is as expected. we must carry out the addition. n. The brackets in form (4 + 5) + 6 tell us to add ﬁrst the ﬁrst two numbers 4 and 5. But we want to be sure of that. For example to calculate the number expressed by the symbol ’4 + 5 + 6 + 7’ we do the calculation as follows 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 = ((4 + 5) + 6) + 7 = (9 + 6) + 7 = 15 + 7 = 22. Since we only have learned to add two numbers at a time. say the sum 4 + 5 + 6 in the form (4 + 5) + 6.

The objects in a collection whose count is 3 × 4 may be displayed as below * * * * * * * * * * * * . The answer is written in the form 35 = 5 × 6 + 3 or in the 3 form 35 6 = 5 + 6. Question: ”How many times the process was repeated and what is the count of apples left after the process stops? Division answers this question....e. Exercises: Write the numbers expressed in the multiplication notation as sums: 1. For example. The Process of Division and its Notation: A basket contains. visualizing the operation of addition using collections allowed us to see the two fundamental properties of addition. The next section introduces rectangular displays of objects in a collections which are helpful in understanding the notation and properties of multiplication. namely. The notion of multiplication helps here. Using multiplication notation the sum 75 + 75 + 75 is written as 3 × 75 which reads ’three times seventy ﬁve’. Similarly. the commutative property and the associative property of addition. at which time we cannot remove 6 apples and the process stops. Simply stated ’3 × 75 = 75 + 75 + 75’. we note that we must take out 6 apples from the basket ﬁve times when the process stops to leave three apples. The two symbolic expressions stand for the same number. Repeated sums when written in multiplication notation are called products. + . The visualization with line displays were helpful in straight counting (for ﬁnding the count of a collection) and for comprehending the process and the fundamental properties of addition and subtraction. So we need to ﬁnd quicker ways to ﬁnd the number represented by the sum. + ..1 Visualizing Multiplication and its Properties: We start with the display of objects in a collection whose count is expressed in the form of a product: For example the number 3 × 4 stands for the repeated sum 4 + 4 + 4 . We repeatedly remove (take out) 6 apples from the basket. 3 × 9 = ... Then we learned that group counting in groups of 10 is helpful in understanding the notation used for numbers and provides a diﬀerent method for addition and subtraction (that uses place value) than straight counting.. to calculate such sums.. apples. 2.. Answer: 3 × 9 = (9 + 9) + 9 = 18 + 9 = 27... 75 + 75 + · · · + 75 = 237 × 75. 4. 6 × 11 = − − − − + − − − − + − − − − + − − − − + .

Since 5 × 6 = 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6. say 35.

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. 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. 7 × 9. Such rearrangement of objects in a display can be used to calculate the number represented by a product of two numbers.9.2. 4 × 9. 2. Visual means can also be used to ﬁnd the counts.2 Exercises 1.Thus actual counting conﬁrms the same. 8 × 9. Use any means to calculate: 9 × 9. 2 × 9. This provides a good visual means for ﬁnding the number 3 × 4 or 4 × 3. The second display has one column of 10 objects and a column of 2 objects for a count of 12. 6 × 9. 1 × 9. Actual counting of objects in any of the displays shows that the count of objects in each display is 12. 0×9 . we may rearrange the objects in any of these displays in the form * * or the form * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * The ﬁrst display has one row of 10 objects and a row of 2 objects to give a count of 12.9. For example. 5 × 9.

It identiﬁes all the products like 3 × 5. say 9 by 2. 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. 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.. and the underlined ’5’ in the top row. 2. 0 × 0. Imagine that you have a bag of almonds.3 Visualizing Division and its Notation Division is repeated subtraction. 7 × 5. Question: Why will the process stop?

This may be visualized as follows: Start with a line display of 9 objects. The process of taking out and giving two almonds will stop when you are left with less than two almonds in the bag. CLASS 2 WORKSHEETS 2. You repeatedly take out two almonds at a time (perhaps to distribute to people working in the ﬁelds). To see that ’2 × 5 = 12’. we look at the underlined ’2’ in the left most column. as for example * * * * * * * * * . 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.9. 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). That is when the process stops. Somebody may ask: ’How many times you took out two almonds from the bag. etc. The answer ’10’ appears at the junction of the row containing the underlined ’2’ and the column containing the underlined ’5’. The table that follows is called the multiplication table.

The 1 at the bottom of the second column is the remainder after the fourth step.9. the result may be obtained in two steps as shown below 2 9 4 5 4 1 2 2 4 Step 1 2 or even in one step as shown below 2 9 8 1 4 4 Step 1 .

Similarly. The scheme of chosing a point and marking (or labeling) it with a number yields a unique point for each number and is described later. Its length is one centemeter. Inches and centimeters are only two of the commonly used units of measure. The length of this ﬁrst one inch segment is one inch. 2. appears as follows and we call it a number line: The Number Line 0 1 2 3 . In the inch ruler the ﬁrst one inch segment is shown divided into eight equal parts. 2. WORKSHEET 10. For this one starts with a line and choses two points marked with the numbers 0 and 1. 4.

We measure lengths or distances using a measuring tape.10 Worksheet 10.. etc. . To measure heaviness of an object we use weights. . The common feature of all types of measures is that they are stated by assigning a number and a unit of measure. the other major activity that helps explore the world around us is that of measuring. Then one choses other points on the line and marks them with the successive numbers 2. Then there are liquid measures.10. 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. 5. 3.

thereafter. the symbol |AB | is used to express the length of the segment AB and we also write |AB | = |AC | + |CB |. the segment AC is seen as being obtained by removing (subtracting) the segment CB from the segment |AB . Moreover. SUBTRACTION: In the same picture as above. This segment is the chosen unit of maeasure (like the inch or the centemeter). We also write |AC | = |AB | − |CB |. ADDITION: Consider the picture of a segment AB and a point C between A and B as shown below: A C B Here. . 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. The segment between the points 0 and 1 is called the chosen unit segment. After this choice the point marked 2 is chosen so that 1 is between 2 and 0. and we write AB = AC + BC . and the segment between 1 and 2 equals (has legth equal to) the segment between 0 and 1. are chosen. the segment AB is called the sum of the segments AC and BC . and we write AC = AB − CB .

A simple type of exceptional point is an end point. running track in a school playground. An air plane moving through space moves on a curve in space.13. because planes extend indeﬁnitely.58 CHAPTER 2. The use of the word ‘most’ suggests that there may be exceptional points on a curve. whereas space has no such limitation. An end point of a curve is a point such that one can only move to the point or from the . all suggest the idea of a curve. the top of a table. 2. 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. a path around a lake. Each particle of air in the room representing a point in space. No physical representation gives any reasonable idea of space. a path in a jungle. The room is indeed limited by ﬂoor.2 PLANES: The idea of a plane is obtained by observing the surface of a calm lake. Table top and geometric plane 2. a river as seen from the window of a high ﬂying airplane. ceiling and walls. though we think of space as the interior of the room we may be in. a rubber band. One must keep in mind that any physical object can only represent a part of a geometric plane.3 SPACE: We think of space as a collection of all points. CLASS 2 WORKSHEETS 2.13. Thus the drawing or sketch obtained by moving a pen (or pencil) on a piece of paper provides a representation of a physical curve.13.4 Curves and Paths A piece of string. or any smooth ﬂat surface like the ﬂoor or the wall of a room. the chalk board.

It is called simple. GEOMETRY 59 point but not through the point. 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. The totality of all streets being the curve.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. namely the crossings of streets. Here are some examples of curves with two end points (dots represent end points). Thus the following ﬁgures show a curve with a direction of motion indicated by an arrow.2. 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 . 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. 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. 2. if the only exceptional points (if any) are end points. Thus paths are simple open curves.13. 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. A street map of a town or city showing all the streets is a general example of a curve that has many exceptional points. 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.13. On a curve or path we shall indicate the direction of movement (when necessary) by means of an arrow.

The most common examples of such paths are a path around a lake or the oval shaped running track in a school playground.These properties may be thought of as intuitively clear. or an angle are basic common examples of simple open curves.60 CHAPTER 2. This means that all points on the curve are in a ﬁxed plane. Two other examples of simple open curves with end points A and B are: B B A A 2. Observe also that a line has no end points. . The following are examples of simple closed corves: 2. and are part of a collection of accepted rules (also called axioms) of Euclidean Geometry. although there may be many many si mple open curves (with or without end points) that contain the two points. there is exactly one segment with end points A and B . Moreover. a segment. CLASS 2 WORKSHEETS A line. 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. 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.6 A characteristic property of lines and segments It is important to observe that for any two points A and B . but many many simple open curves with end points A and B . They are accepted as true in School Geometry (also called Euclidean Geometry).13.14 Plane Curves In School Geometry one mainly studies curves that lie in a plane. a ray. there is only one line that contains the two points. 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.

It has three sides and three angles. A SQUARE: . identify all three sides and angles of this triangle. The side marked is the segment with end points A and C . As an exercise. each of which is called a vertex of the triangle. i. Each side of a triangle is a segment with two of the vertices as end points. and C as marked C Side with end points A and C A B The angle at vertex B is marked. Many are made of segments like the following 1. TRIANGLES:Triangles are the most common and also perhaps most important examples of simple closed curves. Any two sides with a common vertex represent an angle of the triangle. 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. This is so. a rectangle. The triangle below has vertices A.. PLANE CURVES 61 Most common examples that are studied are of simple closed curves in a plane.2. B .14. and an ellipse. Their shapes are shown below 2.e. a circle. Other noteworthy simple closed curves in a plane that are of great interest and importance are. Some other examples of triangles are Every triangle is necessarily a plane curve. A line and a point that is not on the line also determine a unique plane. A triangle is formed by three points. as three points which are not on the same line determine a plane.

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). As examples consider a segment and an angle and their .14.

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