CLASS 3

The Class 3 book deals with computer fundamentals, different types of computers, computer hardware
and software, introduction to Windows 7, Notepad, Paint, LOGO and introduction to MS Word 2007.

Chapter 1: Computer Fundamentals


OBJECTIVE
This chapter discusses evolution of computers. After the completion of the chapter the student will learn
about
the characteristics of computer
early calculating devices
the various types of computers and their uses
the steps involved in the working of a computer
the various hardware components
the various types of software
the various types of storage devices

DISCUSSION
Begin the chapter with a discussion on the need for computers. Necessity is the mother of invention. The
saying holds true for computers because computers were invented as a result of mans search for fast and
accurate calculating devices. The abacus was the first such device. Explain to the students various
calculating devices invented in the past before the invention of actual computer.
Introduce the students to the different types of computers and the areas where they are used. Explain the
termsInput, Process and Output with the help of suitable real-life examples. Give the example of
preparing a cake. To prepare a cake, the flour is mixed with butter and other ingredients and then baked in
an oven. Therefore, the flour and other ingredients are the input. The oven does the processing. It bakes
the material and gives the output that is the cake which is ready to eat. Similarly, in a computer, data,
which is in the form of words and numbers, is the input. The CPU does the processing, and the output that
is the result is displayed on an output device such as the monitor.
Explain what a hardware is. Tell them about the hardware in the system unit. Explain the use of
microprocessor (CPU) in computer. Describe the role of software in a computer system. Explain the need
of different software for doing different tasks. Give the uses of different types of application software. For
example, Paint is an application software which is used for drawing images. Explain the importance of the
proper care of software and hardware. Focus on cleanliness of the hardware. Ensure that the equipment is
unharmed while using it.
Discuss how software is stored. Explain the use of storage devices. Show them the commonly used
storage devices such as CD, DVD and pen drive. Give them an idea of the physical distinction of a CD,
DVD and pen drive. Explain how a CD is played by a computer. Give a first-hand demonstration on how
to insert and eject a CD. If possible, bring some educational software CDs like encyclopedia and show
them to students. Also, show them how to use pen drive for transferring the data.
With the help of the lab assistant, open the system unit and show students the different hardware
components inside the computer. Students should practise responsible use of hardware and software.
Explain the relationship between hardware and software citing examples from real-life.

Chapter 5: Introduction to LOGO


OBJECTIVE
This chapter discusses the basics of the LOGO language. The students will be introduced to the concepts
of computer languages using LOGO. After reading this chapter, the students will be able to use these
primitives of LOGO.
FORWARD and BACK to draw a line forward or backward
RIGHT, LEFT and SETH to change the direction of the turtle
HOME to return to starting position of turtle
CLEARTEXT, CLEAN and CLEARSCREEN to clear the text and drawing

DISCUSSION
Begin the chapter with the discussion on human languages. Ask the students why language is important.
Help them understand the need for a computer language and discuss the different kinds of computer
languages. Explain the students about the computer language LOGO which can be a very useful part of
computing activities in the primary school. However, the best use of LOGO is based on a few
assumptions.
Firstly, LOGO turtle is an object to think with; children can be encouraged to explore ideas and
solve problems with the turtle.
Secondly, LOGO as a programming language can be used to develop basic programming skills.
Finally, LOGO can be used to draw geometric shapes.
Different versions of LOGO are available on the Internet like PC LOGO, MSW LOGO, etc. Make sure
that LOGO is installed in every machine. Demonstrate the path to open the LOGO window. Have all the
students open the LOGO window. Explain the different components of the LOGO window. Explain what
is LOGO turtle and primitive.
The most popular and widely recognised LOGO object is the turtle. A LOGO turtle is a special type of
graphic cursor that makes it easy and fun to make colorful computer graphics. Students can think of the
LOGO turtle as an actor or agent in carrying out the commands they give it to create graphic images on
their computer screen. LOGO provides a wide range of intuitive commands to control the turtle and these
commands are known as primitives. The students should follow the rules given here for writing
primitives.
a. They must write the correct spellings of the primitives.
b. They must leave a space between primitives and numbers.
c. Once the primitive and number are written, they must press the Enter key. As soon as the Enter key is
pressed, turtle executes the given instruction.
The chapter discusses basic primitives. Give examples of FORWARD, BACK, RIGHT, LEFT, HOME,
CLEARTEXT, CLEAN, CLEARSCREEN, and TIME primitives. Explain the concept of angles to the
7

students before starting the RT and LT commands. Clarify the difference between the CLEARTEXT,
CLEAN and CLEARSCREEN primitives.

ACTIVITIES

Draw objects or geometric figures using LOGO primitives like FORWARD, BACK, LEFT and
RIGHT.
Display the current time and date on the LOGO screen.

a. FD 10
b. RT 90
c. BK 20
d. LT 89
3. Answer the questions.
a. To open the MSWLogo, click the Start button, click All Programs, click Microsoft Windows
Logo and then click the Microsoft Windows Logo option.
b. When the MSWLogo screen appears, a triangle is seen at the centre of the Graphics Window.
This triangle is known as the turtle. It has a pen that draws figures on the screen. The turtle moves
all over the screen as per commands given by you in the Input Box.
c. The turtle can be moved in right and left direction using the RIGHT and LEFT primitive,
respectively. While using these primitives you have to specify the angle by which you want to
rotate the turtle towards the right or the left.
d. The CLEARTEXT primitive is used to clear all the text present in the Recall List Box. The
CLEARSCREEN primitive is used to clear the graphics drawn on the Graphics Window and
bring the turtle back to its home position.
4. Fill in the blanks.
a. Computer
