The success of this effort depends on the steps that school principals and teachers will take to encourage children to reflect on their own learning and to pursue imaginative activities and questions.Foreword The National Curriculum Framework. We must recognise that. Sinclair of IGNOU. The methods used for teaching and evaluation will also determine how effective this textbook proves for making children’s life at school a happy experience. home and community. not as receivers of a fixed body of knowledge. The textbook attempts to enhance this endeavour by giving higher priority and space to opportunities for contemplation and wondering. Syllabus designers have tried to address the problem of curricular burden by restructuring and reorienting knowledge at different stages with greater consideration for child psychology and the time available for teaching. Inculcating creativity and initiative is possible if we perceive and treat children as participants in learning. Flexibility in the daily time-table is as necessary as rigour in implementing the annual calendar so that the required number of teaching days are actually devoted to teaching. These aims imply considerable change in school routines and mode of functioning. rather than a source of stress or boredom. New Delhi and Professor G. Professor J. Lucknow for guiding the work of this committee. and activities requiring hands-on experience. This principle marks a departure from the legacy of bookish learning which continues to shape our system and causes a gap between the school.P. We hope these measures will take us significantly further in the direction of a child-centred system of education outlined in the National Policy on Education (1986). The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) appreciates the hard work done by the textbook development committee responsible for this book.V.) of Lucknow University. The syllabi and textbooks developed on the basis of NCF signify an attempt to implement this basic idea. time and freedom. discussion in small groups. Treating the prescribed textbook as the sole basis of examination is one of the key reasons why other resources and sites of learning are ignored. 2005. Dikshit (Retd. They also attempt to discourage rote learning and the maintenance of sharp boundaries between different subject areas. children generate new knowledge by engaging with the information passed on to them by adults. recommends that children’s life at school must be linked to their life outside the school.

Its report. should build on this knowledge in a way that allows children to enjoy mathematics. which came in 2005. the focus should be on helping children to develop the ability to particularise and generalise. a National Focus Group on Teaching of Mathematics was formed. to solve and pose meaningful problems. the following broad guidelines have been kept in mind.Preface Through the years. and to her experiences. The syllabus. and do some mathematics very naturally in their surroundings. Here ‘several’ should be within reason. Encourage the children to see. While teaching mathematics. a National Curriculum Framework (NCF) was finalised in 2005. from the time of the Kothari Commission. Concepts/processes should be introduced through situations from the children’s environment. teaching approach. highlighted a constructivist approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics. For each concept/process give several examples and exercises.. there have been several committees looking at ways of making the school curriculum meaningful and enjoyable for the learners. but in varying contexts. including that for ‘word problems’. The students and teachers need to perceive mathematics as something natural and linked to the world around us. The language used in the book. More specifically. and to realise that mathematics is more about a way of reasoning than about mechanically applying formulae and algorithms. and to apply the logical thinking behind mathematical proof. must be clear. textbooks etc. before they even join school. not overloading the child. © no N C tt E o R be T re pu The matter needs to be linked to what the child has studied before. while creating the textbook. and which the textbook development committee has tried to realise in the present textbook. all this in an environment that the children relate to.

And. diverse solutions to problems. without overloading them. to look for patterns and relationships. This ensures that the children use the concept/process again and again.

However. Give answers to all exercises. Further. Proofs and solutions need to be used as vehicles for helping the learner develop a clear and logical way of expressing her arguments. these points have been kept in mind by the Textbook Development Committee. As in the past. These would not be tested in the examinations. propagate constitutional values.P. give the children motivation for results used.

We are also assuming that teachers will contribute continuously to the process in the classroom by formulating examples and exercises contextually suited to the children in their particular classrooms. the children would be trained to do the same while doing constructions. Finally. These topics may be considered for inclusion in the main syllabi in due course of time. All proofs need to be given in a non-didactic manner. PARVIN SINCLAIR G. Include optional exercises for the more interested learners. All geometric constructions should be accompanied by an analysis of the construction and a proof for the steps taken to do the required construction. what is unusual about the team this time is that teachers from different kinds of schools have been an integral part at each stage of the development. These are placed in the book for interested students to study. As you will see while studying this textbook. and Mathematical Modelling. Add such small anecdotes. more than one proof is to be given. cartoons and historical remarks at several places which the children would find interesting. allowing the learner to see the flow of reason. and are only optional reading at present.
