Note : For activities NCERT Lab Manual may be referred.

Conduct of Periodic Tests

1.Periodic Test is a Pen and Paper assessment which is to be conducted by the subject teacher.

2.In the entire Academic year, three periodic Tests in each subject may be conducted.

3.Once schools complete the conduct of all three periodic tests, they will convert the weightage of each of the three tests into ten marks each for identifying best two tests. The best two will be taken into consideration and the average of the two shall be taken as the final marks for PT.

4.The school will ensure simple documentation to keep a record of performance.

Assessment of Activity work:


1. To verify that the relation R in the set L of all lines in a plane, defined by R = {(l,m):l⊥m} symmetric but neither reflxive nor transitive.

Project work in mathematics may be performed individually by a student or jointly by a group of students. These projects may be in the form of costruction such as curve sketching or drawing of graphs etc. It may offer a discussion of a topic from history of mathematics involving the historical development of particular subject in mathematics/ topics on concepts. Students may be allowed to select the topics of their own choice for projects in mathematics. The teacher may act as a facilitator by creating interest in various topics. Once the topic has been selected, the student should read as much about the topic as is available and finally prepare the project.
