Playing with Numbers

Simplification of brackets

Multiples and factors

divisibility rule of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11. (All these through observing patterns. Children would be helped in deducing some and then asked to derive some that are a combination of the basic patterns of divisibility)

Even/odd and prime/composite numbers, Co-prime numbers, prime factorisation, every number can be written as products of prime factors

Idea of speed and simple daily life problems related to speed, time and distance.

Chapter 3 Algebra

Introduction to constants, variable and unknown through patterns and through appropriate word problems and generalisations (For example 1+3=22, 1+3+5=32, 1+3+5+7=42 , sum of first n odd numbers = n2.)
