Preface
The Curriculum initiated by Central Board of Secondary Education -International (CBSE-i) is a progressive step in making the educational content and methodology more sensitive and responsive to the global needs. It signifies the emergence of a fresh thought process in imparting a curriculum which would restore the independence of the learner to pursue the learning process in harmony with the existing personal, social and cultural ethos. The Central Board of Secondary Education has been providing support to the academic needs of the learners worldwide. It has about 11500 schools affiliated to it and over 158 schools situated in more than 23 countries. The Board has always been conscious of the varying needs of the learners in countries abroad and has been working towards contextualizing certain elements of the learning process to the physical, geographical, social and cultural environment in which they are engaged. The International Curriculum being designed by CBSE-i, has been visualized and developed with these requirements in view. The nucleus of the entire process of constructing the curricular structure is the learner. The objective of the curriculum is to nurture the independence of the learner, given the fact that every learner is unique. The learner has to understand, appreciate, protect and build on values, beliefs and traditional wisdom, make the necessary modifications, improvisations and additions wherever and whenever necessary. The recent scientific and technological advances have thrown open the gateways of knowledge at an astonishing pace. The speed and methods of assimilating knowledge have put forth many challenges to the educators, forcing them to rethink their approaches for knowledge processing by their learners. In this context, it has become imperative for them to incorporate those skills which will enable the young learners to become 'life long learners'. The ability to stay current, to upgrade skills with emerging technologies, to understand the nuances involved in change management and the relevant life skills have to be a part of the learning domains of the global learners. The CBSE-i curriculum has taken cognizance of these requirements. The CBSE-i aims to carry forward the basic strength of the Indian system of education while promoting critical and creative thinking skills, effective communication skills, interpersonal and collaborative skills along with information and media skills. There is an inbuilt flexibility in the curriculum, as it provides a foundation and an extension curriculum, in all subject areas to cater to the different pace of learners. The CBSE has introduced the CBSE-i curriculum in schools affiliated to CBSE at the international level in 2010 and is now introducing it to other affiliated schools who meet the requirements for introducing this curriculum. The focus of CBSE-i is to ensure that the learner is stress-free and committed to active learning. The learner would be evaluated on a continuous and comprehensive basis consequent to the mutual interactions between the teacher and the learner. There are some nonevaluative components in the curriculum which would be commented upon by the teachers and the school. The objective of this part or the core of the curriculum is to scaffold the learning experiences and to relate tacit knowledge with formal knowledge. This would involve trans-disciplinary linkages that would form the core of the learning process. Perspectives, SEWA (Social Empowerment through Work and Action), Life Skills and Research would be the constituents of this 'Core'. The Core skills are the most significant aspects of a learner's holistic growth and learning curve. The International Curriculum has been designed keeping in view the foundations of the National Curricular Framework (NCF 2005) NCERT and the experience gathered by the Board over the last seven decades in imparting effective learning to millions of learners, many of whom are now global citizens. The Board does not interpret this development as an alternative to other curricula existing at the international level, but as an exercise in providing the much needed Indian leadership for global education at the school level. The International Curriculum would evolve on its own, building on learning experiences inside the classroom over a period of time. The Board while addressing the issues of empowerment with the help of the schools' administering this system strongly recommends that practicing teachers become skillful learners on their own and also transfer their learning experiences to their peers through the interactive platforms provided by the Board. I profusely thank Shri G. Balasubramanian, former Director (Academics), CBSE, Ms. Abha Adams and her team and Dr. Sadhana Parashar, Head (Innovations and Research) CBSE along with other Education Officers involved in the development and implementation of this material. The CBSE-i website has already started enabling all stakeholders to participate in this initiative through the discussion forums provided on the portal. Any further suggestions are welcome.

Technology help : Web links for reference, research and remedial You tube to deliver content

TEACHERS NOTE
The teaching of Mathematics should enhance the childs resources to think and reason, to visualise and handle abstractions, to formulate and solve problems. As per NCF 2005, the vision for school Mathematics include :

1. Children learn to enjoy mathematics rather than fear it. 2. Children see mathematics as something to talk about, to communicate through, to discuss among themselves, to work together on. 3. Children pose and solve meaningful problems. 4. Children use abstractions to perceive relation-ships, to see structures, to reason out things, to argue the truth or falsity of statements. 5. Children understand the basic structure of Mathematics: Arithmetic, algebra, geometry and trigonometry, the basic content areas of school Mathematics, all offer a methodology for abstraction, structuration and generalisation. 6. Teachers engage every child in class with the conviction that everyone can learn mathematics.

Students should be encouraged to solve problems through different methods like abstraction, quantification, analogy, case analysis, reduction to simpler situations, even guess-and-verify exercises during different stages of school. This will enrich the students and help them to understand that a problem can be approached by a variety of methods for solving it. School mathematics should also play an important role in developing the useful skill of estimation of quantities and approximating solutions. Development of visualisation and representations skills should be integral to Mathematics teaching. There is also a need to make connections between Mathematics and other subjects of study. When children learn to draw a graph, they should be encouraged to perceive the importance of graph in the teaching of Science, Social Science and other areas of study. Mathematics should help in developing the reasoning skills of students. Proof is a process which encourages systematic way of argumentation. The aim should be to develop arguments, to evaluate arguments, to make conjunctures and understand that there are various methods of reasoning. Students should be made to understand that mathematical communication is precise,
5

employs unambiguous use of language and rigour in formulation. Children should be encouraged to appreciate its significance. At the upper primary stage, students get the first taste of power of Mathematics through the application of powerful abstract concepts like Algebra, Number System, Geometry etc. Revisiting of the previous knowledge and consolidating basic concepts and skills learnt at the Primary Stage helps the child to appreciate the abstract nature of Mathematics. Whether it is Number system or algebra or Geometry, these topics should be introduced by relating it to the childs every day experience and taking it forward to abstraction so that the child can appreciate the importance of study of these topics. The students in the middle grades have an informal knowledge about a point, line and plane. By this stage they are aware of various 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional shapes. They recognize these shapes early, even before they know the technical terms for the different shapes they see. They have an intuitive idea about different polygons, angles and triangles. They are now expected to define and draw all these terms and their components mathematically. According to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, grades 6-8 students should be able to: Precisely describe, classify, and understand relationships among types of twoand three-dimensional objects using their defining properties; Use two-dimensional representations of three-dimensional objects to visualize and solve problems such as those involving surface area and volume; and, Use geometric models to represent and explain numerical and algebraic relationships (NCTM, 2000). The students at this level should be able to learn the geometric vocabulary of the three dimensional shapes such as faces, edges and vertices. They should be able to create and use two dimensional representations of three dimensional shapes by forming nets of the three dimensional figures. The teacher may encourage the students to discover,

through investigation of various structures the Eulers Formula, the algebraic relation between the edges, vertices and faces of the polyhedrons.

Common Errors
Type of error Diagonals of a Pentagon Error made Counting the number of diagonals Correction Its best to ask the students to pick up one vertex of the pentagon and start making diagonals. A prism has two identical bases and all the faces are rectangles. A pyramid has a single base and a top vertex and all the faces are triangles. Yes a cuboid is a rectangular prism with two rectangular bases

Prism and Pyramid

Overview of the students worksheets


The first Warm up activity (W1) is an artistic geometrical design where the students are using their previous knowledge of informal geometry and appreciate the use of geometry. In Warm Up activity (W2), the students use their previous knowledge of geometrical terms in a crossword game. In Warm up activity (W3), the students recollect the known terms in Lines and Angles.

Through Pre content 1, (P1), the students are informally introduced to Quadrilaterals and its types through Tangrams. In Pre content 2 (P2), the students try to find out how and where geometry exists around us. The focus on the warm up and pre content activities shall be to refresh the previous knowledge of the students so that they can comfortably build up the new topic. The pre content activities act as a bridge between the previously learnt concepts and the new concepts to be studied. The content worksheets from C1 through C26 aim at achieving the above stated learning objectives. Not only shall the students learn the basic concepts of geometry, they shall be encouraged to find how closely and beautifully mathematics is related to their daily lives. The teacher may encourage them to make projects where they can appreciate the applicability of geometry in real life. Further the post content activity (PC1)is designed to assess the students understanding of the concepts learnt in the chapter. The post content worksheet 2 is an assessment test to test the concepts learnt in totality. It is not included in the students Worksheets. The teacher may use it as a timed test by giving print outs to students.

Understanding Shapes - 2D and 3D


1. Introduction In the previous chapter, you were introduced to some basic concepts of geometry including open and closed curves as well as curves which are simple and not simple. We also discussed polygons as simple closed curves made up of line segments only. In this chapter, we shall first review these concepts and then discuss more of polygons with special reference to quadrilaterals and triangles. We shall also extend this study of 2D figures to some familiar 3D figures (shapes) such as prisms, pyramids including cuboids, cubes, cylinders, cones, etc. Finally, we shall study symmetry of plane figures with respect to a line. 2 Open and closed curves a Review Closed curves: If we place a tip of a pencil on any point on a curve, starting from this point and going along the curve, we can reach the same point without retracing the path, then the curve is known as a closed curve, For example, curves (i), (ii) and (iv) (Fig. 1) are closed curves, while (iii) and (v) are not closed curves (why?).

Fig. 1 Open curves: A curve which is not closed is known as an open curve. Thus, curves (iii) and (v) in Fig. 1 are open curves. 45

Simple curves: A curve that does not intersect itself is known as a simple curve. For example, curves (i), (ii) and (v) in Fig. 1 are simple curves, whereas curves (iii) and (iv) are not simple curves. Simple closed curve: A curve which is simple as well as closed is known as a simple closed curve. For example, in Fig. 1, (i) and (ii) are simple closed curves, whereas curve (iv) is a closed curve but not simple. Example 1: Classify the following curves as (a) closed curves (b) open curves (c) simple curves (d) simple closed curves:

Fig. 2 Solution: (a) (b) (c) (d) Closed curves : (ii), (iii), (iv), (vi), (viii), (ix) and (x) Open curves : (i), (v) and (vii) Simple curves : (i), (ii) (iii), (iv), (v), (vi), (viii), (ix) and (x) Simple closed curves : (ii), (iii), (iv), (vi), (viii), (ix) and (x)

46

Polygons Recall that a simple closed curve made up of line segments only is called a polygon.

For example, curves in (i) , (ii) and (vii), in Fig. 3 are polygons, whereas curves in (iii), (iv), (v), (vi) and (viii) are not polygons (why?).

Fig. 3 Convex and Non-convex Polygons Recall that polygon like as in (i) is called a convex polygon, whereas polygons like as in (ii) and (vii) (Fig. 3) are not convex polygons. In case of a convex polygon, if you take any two points P and Q in the interior of the polygon, then the entire line segment PQ lies in its interior. But in case of a non-convex polygon, it is not so. (See Fig. 4 below).

47

Fig. 4 A non-convex polygon is also called a concave polygon. From now onwards, we shall use the word polygon to mean a convex polygon, unless stated otherwise. Types of Polygons Polygons may be classified based on the number of sides. A polygon of 3 sides is called a triangle, a polygon of 4 sides is called a quadrilateral, a polygon of 5 sides is called a pentagon, and so an. (See the table below) Number of sides 3 Name of polygon Triangle Illustration

Regular Polygons: A polygon whose all angles and all sides are equal is called a regular polygon. For example, following are regular polygon (Fig. 5):

Fig. 5 Following polygons are not regular (Fig.6), why?.

50

Example 2: Write the name of the polygon for each figure :

Fig. 7 Solution: (i) Septagon (ii) Triangle (iii) Quadrilateral

(iv) Quadrilateral (v) Triangle (vi) Hexagon (vii) Pentagon (viii) Octagon. 4 Triangles and their types Recall that a triangle is a polygon of 3 sides, i.e. a polygon of least number of sides, Triangles can be classified in two ways: (a) According to Sides A triangle having all three unequal sides is called a scalene triangle [Fig. 7(i)]

A triangle having two equal sides is called an isosceles triangle (Fig. 7(ii)).

51

A triangle having all three equal sides is called an equilateral triangle [(Fig. 7(iii)] F i g . Fig. 7

(b)

According to Angles A triangle whose each angle is less than 90, i.e., each angle is an acute angle, is called an acute angled triangle or acute triangle (Fig. 8(i)).

A triangle whose any one angle is of 90, then the triangle is called a right angled triangle or right triangle. (Fig. 8(ii)).

A triangle whose any one angle is greater than 90, then the triangle is called an obtuse angled triangle or obtuse triangle (Fig. 8(iii)). Fig. 8 52

Example 3: The lengths of the sides of triangles are given below. Classify them as scalene, equilateral or isosceles. (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) (v) (vi) Solution: Scalene: (i), (iii), (vi) Isosceles: (iv) , (v) Equilateral: (ii) An important Note! An equilateral triangle is also considered as an isosceles triangle because of its definition but not conversely. In this sense, triangle in (ii) is also an isosceles triangle. Example 4: Classify the triangles whose angles are given below : (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) (v) 40, 50, 90 60, 60, 60 35, 45, 100 45, 45, 90 45, 40, 95 4 cm, 5 cm,, 8 cm 11 cm, 11 cm, 11 cm 8.7 cm, 7.2 cm, 11 cm 9 cm, 12 cm, 9 cm 2.3 cm, 3.1 cm, 2.3 cm 3.4 cm, 5 cm, 6 cm

53

Solution: Acute angled (ii) Right angled (i), (iv) Obtuse angled (iii), (v) You can verify that in an isosceles triangle, angles opposite equal sides are equal and if in a triangle, two angles are equal, then sides opposite equal angles are also equal. Also, in an equilateral triangle, all angles are equal as all sides are equal. Classify each of the following triangles in two different ways. One is done for you.

5.

Quadrilaterals and Their Types Recall that a quadrilateral is a polygon of four sides (Fig.9). There are many types of quadrilaterals. Trapezium: A quadrilateral in which a pair of 54

opposite sides is parallel is called a trapezium. In Fig. 10, ABCD is a trapezium in which AB||CD.

You can verify by measurement that A+ D = 180 and B+ C = 180.

Parallelogram: A quadrilateral in which both the pairs of opposite sides are parallel is called a parallelogram. In Fig. 11, PQRS is a parallelogram in which PQ||SR and PS||QR.

You can verify by actual measurement that PQ = SR and PS = QR. Also, P= R and Q= S.

Rectangle: A rectangle is a special type of a parallelogram in which one angle is a right angle. In Fig. 12, ABCD is a rectangle in which AB||DC, AD||BC and A = 90.

You can check by actual measurement that A= B= C= D = 90. Also, AB = DC and AD = BC.

55

Rhombus: A rhombus is a special type of a parallelogram in which a pair of adjacent sides is equal. In Fig. 13, MNPQ is a rhombus in which QM = QP, MN||QP and MQ||NP. You can verify by actual measurement that MN = NP = PQ = QM. Also, M= P and N= Q.

Square: A square is a quadrilateral which is a rectangle as well as a rhombus. In Fig. 14, ABCD is a square, because it is a rectangle as well as a rhombus. That is, AB||DC, AD||BC, and AB = BC = CD = DA. Example 5: State whether the following statements are true or false: (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) (v) (vi) (vii) (viii) The opposite sides of a trapezium are parallel. All the sides of a rhombus are equal. A square is a parallelogram. A parallelogram is a rhombus. Each angle of a rectangle is of 90. A square is a special type of a rectangle. All angles of a rhombus are equal. In a parallelogram, each pair of opposites sides are equal. A= B= C= D = 90

56

Solution: (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) (v) (vi) (vii) (viii) False, as in general only one pair of opposite sides is parallel. True True False, a rhombus is a parallelogram but not conversely. True True False, only in some cases, opposite angles are equal but not in general. True

Example 6: State whether the following statements are true or false: (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) Solution: (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) False. All angles of a rectangle are equal but all sides are not equal. True. All angles and all sides are equal. False. All sides are equal but all angles are not equal. False. For a polygon to be regular, all sides as well as all angles have to be equal. A rectangle is a regular polygon. A square is a regular polygon. A rhombus is a regular polygon. A polygon is regular if its all sides are equal

57

Three Dimensional Shapes (3D Shapes) You have studied so far about polygons such as triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons etc. All these shapes wholly lie in a plane. Such shapes are called two dimensional shapes. (2D shapes or plane figures). Thus, a triangle, rectangle, rhombus, square, pentagon etc. and even a circle are 2D shapes. Look at the following shapes which you see in day to day life. (Fig. 15)

You can see that each of them does not wholly lie in a plane. Such shapes are called 3D shapes (or solid shapes or solid figures). They are given special names like cuboid, cube, cylinder, cone, sphere, prism, pyramid etc.

58

Cuboid Look at the shape in Fig. 16. It is called a cuboid. It is made up of 6 rectangular regions called its faces. So, it has 6 faces. Opposite faces of a cuboid are equal in size. Two faces meet in a line segment called edge of the cuboid. See that there are 12 edges. Three edges meet in a point called a corner or vertex. See that there are 8 vertices (plural of vetex). Thus, a cuboid has : 6 faces, 12 edges and 8 vertices. Cube Look at the shape in Fig. 17. It is called a cube.

A cube is a special type of a cuboid in which all the edges are equal. Clearly, all its faces are squares of the same size. Thus,

59

A cube has 6 faces, 12 edges and 8 vertices. Prism Look at the shape in Fig. 18. It is a prism.

It is made up of two triangular faces of equal size and three rectangular faces. It is a special type of prism called triangular prism. See that a triangular prism has 5 faces, 9 edges and 6 vertices. In general, in place of two triangular faces of equal size, a prism can have any two polygonal faces of equal size. If these faces are pentagonal, then prism is called a pentagonal prism. If these faces are hexagonal, then it is called a hexagonal prism etc. Note that cuboid is also a prism, a cube is also a prism. Cylinder Look at the shape in Fig. 19. It is called a cylinder.

It is made up of two circular faces and one curved surface. A cylinder has two circular faces, one curved surface and two circular edges and no vertex. A cylinder may be thought of as a prism whose base and top are circular (i.e. polygon of infinitely many number of sides of equal size).

60

Pyramid Look at the shapes in Fig. 20. Each of them is a pyramid.

Shape (i) is made up of a triangular base, three more triangles meeting at one vertex. It is called a triangular pyramid or a tetrahedron. It has 4 faces, 6 edges and 4 vertices. Shape (ii) is again made up of 4 triangular faces meeting at one vertex and a square base. It is called a square pyramid. It has 5 faces, 8 edges and 5 vertices.

A pyramid can have any polygonal face as its base. The other faces will be triangular meeting at one vertex. Thus, if the base is pentagonal, then it is called a pentagonal pyramid. If the base is hexagonal, then it is called a hexagonal pyramid.

61

Cone Look at the shape in Fig. 21. It is called a cone.

It is made up of a circular face (called base) and a curved surface. Thus, a cone has one circular face, one curved surface, one circular edge and one vertex.

A cone may be thought of a pyramid whose base is circular (i.e. polygon of infinite number of sides) Sphere Look at the shape in Fig. 22. It is called a sphere.

It has only curved surface, no edge and no vertex.

Cube : Look at the shape in Fig. 23. It is a 2D shape.

Cut it out and fold it along the dotted lines. You will get a cube (3D shape). The shape in Fig. 23 is called a net of a cube. Triangular Prism Look at the shape in Fig. 24. It is a 2D shape.

Cut it out and fold it along the dotted lines. You will get a triangular prism (3D shape). The shape in Fig. 24 is called a net of a triangular prism. 66

Pyramid Look at the shapes in Fig. 25(i) and (ii). These are 2D shapes.

Cut them out and fold each along the dotted lines. You will get a triangular pyramid (tetrahedron) from (i) and a square pyramid from (ii).

The shapes in Fig. 25(i) and (ii) are called nets of a tetrahedron and a square pyramid

respectively.

Cylinder The shape in Fig. 26 is a 2D shape. Cut it out and fold it along length so that two ends coincide. You will get a cylinder. The shape in Fig. 26 is called a net of a cylinder.

67

You will get a cone. The shape in Fig. 27 is called a net of a cone. Suggested Activities Make nets of the following 3D shapes: (i) cuboid (ii) cone (iii) cylinder (iv) tetrahedron (v) cube (vi) triangular prism (vii) square pyramid (8) Symmetry Symmetry Around Us Look at the following pictures (Fig. 28) :

68

These pictures look beautiful because of their symmetry. If you could fold a picture along a line such that one part of the picture covers exactly the other part of the picture, then we say that the picture is symmetrical with respect to line of folding. The line of folding is called the line of symmetry (or the axis of symmetry) for the picture (Fig. 29).

This type of symmetry is usually referred to as line symmetry or linear symmetry. Reflection and Symmetry Let us place a plane mirror along the line of symmetry in each of the above pictures. You will find that one part of the picture will appear to be the image of the other part. Because of this reason, the line symmetry is also called the reflection symmetry. Now look at the picture showing the reflection of the English letter P in a plane mirror.

Clearly, the object (P) and its image ( ) are symmetrical with reference to the mirror line. If the paper is folded, the mirror line becomes the line of symmetry.

Lines

of

(i) Look at the adjoining Fig.31.

(ii)

If the figure is folded along the line m, then one part covers the other part exactly. So, m is a line of symmetry for this figure.

(iii)

Look at the adjoining Fig.32.

In this case, by folding the figure in two different ways, you will find that there are two lines of symmetry (i.e. l and m) for the figure.

Thus, a rectangle has two lines of symmetry.

(iii)

Look at the adjoining Fig.33 (square).

By folding the paper, you can find that there are four lines of symmetry in this case. Thus, a square has four lines of symmetry.

71

(iv)

Look at the adjoining equilateral triangle (Fig. 34)

By folding the figure in three different ways, you can find that there are three lines of symmetry of an equilateral triangle.

(v)

Look at the circle given below: (Fig. 35)

By folding the circle along one of its diameters, you can find that a diameter is a line of symmetry for the circle. Since there are infinitely many diameters of a circle, so there are infinitely many lines of symmetry for a circle.

(vi)

Look at the adjoining parallelogram (Fig. 36).

72

Try to fold it in such a way that one part of the parallelogram covers the other part of the parallelogram. Can you find any line of symmetry? No. Thus, a parallelogram has no line of symmetry. A plane figure which has no line of symmetry is called an asymmetric figure. Example 9: Find the number of lines of symmetry in each of the following figures:

73

Solution:

Example 10: Write the number of lines of symmetry for the following : (i) Isosceles triangle (ii) Equilateral triangle (iii) A (iv) H (v) N (vi) E (vii) Rhombus (viii) T Solution: (i) One (ii) Three (iii) One (iv) Two (v) Zero (vii) One (vii) Two (viii) One
