]]>Observational skill is one of the essential aspects of scientific temperament or approach that makes anyone gather more information. More information leads to get more relations thereby improving the analytical skills and in turn making the person best at understanding the situation or concept.At zerosciencelab, we prioritise providing as many situations or Observables as possible through the technology (backed by a research team) in the form of interactive virtual activities coupled with some queries to enhance the student’s Observational skills.

Let us consider a situation where a person is walking towards a wall of height (h) from a distance (s). Many of us might have experienced such a situation at some point in time. Have you ever paid attention to how does the wall appear as we move closer to the wall? Don’t you feel the increase in the height of the wall as you move closer and closer to the wall? Is it real? or why does it appear as if the height of the wall increased? What matters? Can we measure the heights of such Objects from distances? Let’s try to understand such a situation through the following interactive activities. Use them to Observe, think, question, create and measure.

Look at the following interactive to understand the concept of angle and its usefulness in knowing the heights and distances. Attempt the quiz following the activity to estimate your understanding.

Did you make the correct guesses? Eager to verify, why not? We suggest stopping the box from moving by clicking the button stop on the right, Change the view by using the tool “Rotate 3D Graphics View” provided on the top bar. Observe, think question how the lines ZI and IN are changing. Look at the variation of the angle formed between the lines ZI and IN.

We explore all the possible polynomial functions up to the 4th degree using the tool given below the equation. Here in this tool, we plot the graph of a polynomial by selecting the coefficients.

A polynomial of degree 1 is called a linear polynomial and to get we select a=b=c=0 and vary “d” and “e” and the respective plot is drawn in the graphing area of the tool. from the graph, we can observe the variation of the x-intercept with “d” and “e” variation.

This way one can easily understand the geometrical meaning of different polynomials and find their solutions

]]>The Following is a simple formation using a total of 8 points. The point here is the structure we see when the points are mocing. Does the structure we see really exists?

If you think yes the structure exists, then look at each point by closing all other points and then identify how the structure is really formed. Plenty of such math interactives are used in our courses.

Welcome to ZEROSCIENCELAB’s world!!!

Everybody agrees that learning is a lifelong process. It should not stop but may be passed for a while. With regards to science education in our country, everybody is pouring a lot of information into the minds of the students without giving them a chance to apply their thoughts and analyze it, thereby reducing their understanding of the underlying laws and nature.

We are missing another important factor i.e. logical reasoning by way of training the student always write answers for a particular set of questions framed by the teachers. To fill these gaps we are trying to integrate technology into the present curriculum.

Most of the content we are planning is interactive in nature coupled with guiding questions, homework, and collaborative tools encouraging the kids to explore by interaction and present their observations through collaboration. One such technology we are adopting is computing on multiple levels.

Here are some simple tools that we use and build our interactions while learning

And once again, our motto is to make you fall in love with mathematics and science.

Thank you
