Education Magazines play an important role in India and it is one of the best source of latest information, knowledge and technology for everyone especially students and teachers. The main aim is to educate the public examination aspirants and students which also help to increase their ability skills, exam tips, GK, current affairs and many more.
Here is the top 10 largest circulated educational magazines in India:
An innovative puzzle game, Damero Plus brings in the 2D Rubix Cube experience into your device. The app is a good way to hone your mathematical problem solving capabilities and is a good way to keep yourself busy while on boring bus rides or waiting for the next assignment.
The process of gaming via Damero Plus helps you better understand mapping concepts and surface tours. It’s a great way to master the theories of conjugates, cyclic permutations and commuters. Damero Plus is certainly not for people who like light weighted games. One needs to really focus on the puzzle at hand to be able to solve it.
Damero Plus is serious stuff. The game help board does provide contextual help to the player, but one needs to be rightly involved in the learning process. As already said it is not for the regular gamer on portable devices.
Enough credit goes to the developer to have been able to come with the concept of Damero Plus. The interface does make it easier to navigate and solve the 2D puzzles. The series of problems are aptly defines in the various levels.
Overall, Damero plus is for the serious mathematics lover. It can be a great tool to improve your analytical skills and problem solving abilities.
Anxious parents are often running a flashlight to locate the answer to their question. I became that answer to my neighbours whose daughter I was asked to ‘speed-coach’ shortly before her exams. She is a smart, caring, responsible ‘older-sister’. I know this because it shows up in her social interaction patterns – the way she babysits her younger sister or in the way she helps her grandparents in their gardening projects. She was having some trouble with the subject we all love to hate -Math.
I gave her an English sum (yeah that is possible!) where she has to solve or rather guess the right word based on clues given by the quizzer. The easiest way to guess the right word is through the process of elimination and having deep understanding of English language. Sounds complicated, well it was! But it was FUN too.When one’s mind is engaged in making connections eliminating impossible letters and using deductive reasoning to substitute alphabets one can arrive at the right word!
The idea behind the test was to gauge the child’s ‘meta-cognitive skills’- to understand if the problem lies in the comprehension of sums, the basic knowledge of formulae or cognitive dissonance(in terms of incongruent thought patterns or irrational thinking). As suspectedthe problem lay in none of the above! She really is a bright one. Her problem was the application of the formulae in the right sum and situation. Further tests showed that she was scared to go beyond what she understood of the concepts. Given different, new conditions, her confidence fizzled out. I introduced new conditions by deeper questioning of the concepts she used to solve a problem – the how-s and the why-s. The same sum packaged in a different wrapping and she was unable to even hazard a guess that the same question was being asked. She seemed to fear risking trying out a hand-made process to a slightly different question.
This incident raises the question if children are afraid to tweak their method to suit the purposes of the new changed scenario. Studies show that there are age-related, cultural and gender based differences in risk taking behaviour. In fact, the level of risk taken in different situations by the same individual is different. The same child who is so hesitant to seek out new ways to solve an algebraic problem will not be scared to try out a new cuisine or even a drastic haircut!
The ‘risk’ aspect depends on how the people around us will interpret the outcome. People are more forgiving of a bad haircut or a questionable fashion tastes than faring poorly in the final exams, or trying out a new move in the last football match that leads to defeat. We gauge the possible future reactions to our actions through our prior experiences and knowledge. The all important question then becomes that — are we as a society pushing our children to take normative decisions only and discouraging them from digressing into the unknown?
One way to overcome this lop-sided, safely mapped pedagogy is to encourage children to study all subjects as different aspect of the same concepts for a better and deeper understanding. It is also very important that they generate creative ideas to find new solutions to the same problem through different methods and to inculcate real life scenarios in education to breathe life into textbook questions.
As a teacher, I am learning too. This incident has been an eye-opener for me. It teaches me that not all my students are at the same level of risk-taking and idea-generating despite being on the same platform of knowing a formula. And that can go a long way in their final performance!
If your child has started going to school, then the most challenging tasks for every parent is to make them study well. It is very difficult to make the kids understand the importance of the education and also make them grasp the things easily.
To help you with some tips to make your kids study well, here are a few:
2. Try to teach them the alphabets and numeric with songs and activities
3. Try to engage them with some games that are especially meant for learning alphabets
4. You can make use of the mathematical games to make them learn numbers
5. Teach them more rhymes with music
