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. So, for this, we are providing you the daily quiz for all teaching exams i.e CTET Exam 2018, DSSSB ,KVS,STET Exam.

(a) It engages the students in discussion while the teacher can see their homework
(b) Language helps in mathematical understanding
(c) Mathematical talks are the buzz word in recent educational discourse

Q2. A good question to know about your students’ thinking could be
(b) How did you get the answer ?
(d) Is your working same as given in the book ?
Q3. Textbooks often give the formula for calculating the volume of a 3D shape as V = A × H.
However, for a sophisticated understanding of the concept of volume, we should state it as:

(b) Volume can be found only for three dimensional objects as they have height and occupy space.
(c) Multiplying the space occupied by an object with its height can tell its capacity.
