1. To make the concepts clear various demos. and other supplement resource materials will be used in
the lectures and detail of demos. and other supplement materials will be mentioned in the Instruction plan.

2. Three tests (Evaluative) will be conducted so as to recapitulate the contents. Two best will be
considered. 3. Home work may also be given but it will be non evaluative. 4. Physical demonstrations will also be shown to the students in the classes so as to develop interest and better understanding of a topic.
