This was the first lesson of Dr Banhar .He started with a very interesting game using the letters of his name .It was very mind boggling at the start when he asked us to find out which letter of his name would be the 99th .At the start i could not find the pattern .But after his explanation and that of our classmates i was able to see the pattern (1) all the 9 were in the ones place

(2)multiplies of 10 were found only in the letter (A)

Then there was another question where he asked us to find out the 99 letter in our name and some of the classmates with the same no of letters had different letters and then we had to double check it .Through this we also learnt the pattern in others name .

I learnt three types of numbers in the 1st lesson :-Cardinal numbers which is to count the number of things or the quantity

-Ordinal numbers is used to indicate positions like 1st 2nd 3rd eg.who is 3rd from the finishing line

-Nominal numbers are use to name things like bus 28

-Measurement numbers are used in instances like 28 kg or 15cm .

The other thing was to start off with identical sets than with non identical sets so it will be easier for the children

-Another thing taught was the 10 frame where its easier for the children to count .

- A interesting fact was that counting had 4 prerequisites like

- Classifying
- 1 to 1 correspondence
- rote counting
- and the last number uttered is the number

I like the poker card game .It was very unique and it was a challenge to find out the way it could be used . I really enjoyed the maths games played and the way Dr Ban har conducts his lessons in a fun and engaging way . I like the way he models and wants us to find the answer giving us ample time to respond .
