Measurement of Mass/Weight
In this live session, Ruchi talked about how to approach the concept of measurement of weight with primary graders. The session aimed to cater to both teachers and students. The session consisted of a mix of interactive stories and activities. It discussed the basic yet very important mathematical vocabulary related to weight measurement. Mass and weight are the concepts that all students come across in daily life. Contrary to the abstract nature of mathematics, Ruchi discussed how this concept is concrete and among the essential things that a student should know. Utmost care was taken to include such examples and activities that help students to relate the abstract concepts with the real-life situations. In order to make the session more interactive and fruitful, the doubts raised by students, teachers, and other stakeholders in the comment section as well as through the toll-free number, were also answered.
