# CTET/ UPTET Exam | Practice Mathematics Pedagogy Questions | 11th October 2019 CTET/ UPTET Exam Practice Mathematics Questions-

Dear Students!!! There is most general as well as a scoring section in all the competitive entrance examinations in the teaching field i.e “Mathematics”.Because in this section only one thing is work i.e your accuracy and that could be nourished with the daily practice.With proper system, Study Notes, Quizzes, Vocabulary one can quiet his/her nerves and exceed expectations in the blink of an eye. So, for this, we are providing you the daily quiz for all teaching exams i.e CTET Exam 2019DSSSB ,KVS,STET Exam.
Q1. Anisha and Amit study in Class VII. Anisha told Amit that if the marks in Mathematics of each student in the class are increased by 5, the average would go up by 5. She further says that it is true for all numbers. Amit does not agree and Anisha proves it by taking the case n, instead of 5. Anisha is using
(a) deductive logic
(b) common sense
(c) estimation
(d) inductive logic
Q2. Using technology-based games involving factorization of numbers of formation of new shapes by joining 2D shapes, etc.
(a) enhances students’ ability to understand the concepts better as they able to explore, observe and infer at their own pace
(b) helps teacher to assess students’ performance in Mathematics
(c) helps teacher to manage students in Mathematics laboratory
(d) enhances students’ numeracy skills and computational skills
Q3. Writing proofs in geometry implies
(a) argument or justification of statements
(b) description of a geometrical problems
(c) steps of drawing a figure
(d) two-column table of axioms and deductions
Q4. ‘Two complementary angles are in the ratio 2: 3. Find these angles.’
The above problem from NCERT textbook of Class VII refers to
(a) lower order thinking as it is based on using the information in concrete situation
(b) higher order thinking as it demands the interpretation of given information, its analysis and use in getting the desired information
(c) higher order thinking as it demands construction of a figure using given information
(d) lower order thinking as it is based on recalling information
