Geogebra ,EBD & Goanimate

saranya

I learned to use geogebra. And I have used geogebra to solve a linear equation.This worked for me and it was new to me.It is increasing my interest in mathematics.Now I am eager to solve many equation.Whatever equation we put according to that we will get wave form.For an example i have taken 3x+2 is a linear equation.from that diagram we can easily identify that is linear equation.It was surprised me.

I worked on students EDB.The pond which they have built before it was broken.So because of that students want to rebuild the pond.Now they are in process of adding iron rod and concrete item so that the pond won’t get break again.It was wonderful experience with them.Is very good to see like that students they were full of energy.

 

Goanimate it was great idea.It is like how we can make our session to be more interactive.It was fun and awesome.Because whatever we want convey to the students we can convey by making video through goanimate.It was my first experience with goanimate.I made a video about multiplication story.The below picture can tells about story of multiplication.

 

(I.e) there are 3 children I bought some of the chocolate.If I gave 4 chocolate to each of them how many chocolate did I give?. The answer also I have shown.The answer is 12(add there number of chocolates what they have then we will get the answer easily).

 

Different kind of experience with children

RYSI (Raman Young Science Innovator) When we got the circular about Raman award. Students were so excited to do many things in different ways.I have supported few of them.It was different experienced with each children. One of the student is from 9th grade, he wants to measure the frequency.We have connected one micro phone with an Oscilloscope.With the help of an Oscilloscope we measured our heart beat frequency.

I learned about Density(formula). In water, if we through a stone, it will sink because the density of the stone is greater than 1. If it is in less than 1 it will float in the water. Sharani from 5th grade she did density project for Raman award. I just supported her.That was nice experienced with her.

In scratch I learned to give input from the keyboard using sensing(tool). I have drawn a circle using scratch. In that program I did not give radius value I have given radius value from the keyboard.That was new for me.

My first experience with scratch

Saranya

This is an amazing idea .When I heard the word scratch, I did not know what it is? .After that students taught me how to use it? What kind of thing we can learn by using scratch.It is like an Object Oriented Programming.Here we have to give only command like move,turn like this. We have to understand the logic. whatever the command is given by us It will draw accordingly. We can draw different shapes by using scratch.It is increasing my interest level towards mathematics. The below picture shows the circle by using scratch.

This is makes me to understand the logic in easy way.Yesterday evening I saw the two wheeler truck so I would like to draw the truck by using scratch.Then I tried to draw a two wheeler truck.The below picture can shows my interest  towards scratch.

7-SEGMENT DISPLAY

Everyday I am learning new things. This week I have learned to display my name using a 7-segment display and then I made it blink my name using an Oscillator and Arduino programming. The components used were a 7-segment display, resistor(1kilo ohm), battery(9v) and wires. Using these components I have made my name. The picture below shows shows my name using 7-segment display.

For oscillator we need two transistors, four resistors (1kilo ohm,18kilo ohm(depends upon the frequency)), capacitor (1uf or 2.2uf or 10uf). In arduino the 13th pin is for LED and the 22nd pin is for ground. Using this components I have made my name to blink. Here is a video for blinking my name using an Oscillator.

SOURCING INNER POWER

I attended a Stewardship for New Emergence workshop.. In that workshop I was able to find who I am. From that workshop I have learned the difference between who am I and my name. When I told that I am Saranya, Ahmed stopped me and said that his name is Ahmed and he is greater than his name. I stand for love and happiness for myself and others I discovered this from the workshop.

LEARNING FESTIVAL

On Jan 24th and 25th we went to Indira Gandhi higher secondary school for the Learning festival. This is the first time a Learning festival has happened in Puducherry. In this learning festival I have learned  how to lead a session for students. This was the first time I have taught electronics to the students. It was nice experience with students and teachers. After the session we went to the other sessions and what they are teaching. I went to a class where I  learned how to make a soap and how to use some things in a several ways(for an example, rope  can be used for skipping(play), suicide, to dry a cloths, to lift something heavy weighted (taking water from the well) etc….). I have met different kind of students. Many students were interested to do electronics. In that festival I motivated them a lot. When they made a mistake I did not help them. I asked them to recheck their connection and after that they checked their connection. They informed me where they made  made a mistake. From that I understood that I should  let them struggle then only they will learn by their own. Finally the Education Minister of Puducherry Mr.V.Narayanaswamy came and visited our session. He saw what the students did with Electronics. Many students did their name and some of the students did their school name. It was good experience.
