Objectives of Introducing Science, Maths and English labs

In this modern era, we want our students to think like a scientist, physicist and Mathematician. That’s why we introduced hands on interactive lab classes for science, Maths and English, so that students will be able to know the concepts visually, interact with key ideas. It a unique approach to learn Maths, science and English through creative activities.

School Lab Timings

The Laboratory is open Monday through Friday 9:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

1.Maths Lab

The main objective of maths lab is to provide hands on learning opportunities for the students. It will motivate students to master math skills and problem solving techniques. It will improve the students’ ability to learn mathematics.
Some of the ways in which a mathematics laboratory can contribute to the learning of the subject are:
• It provides an opportunity to understand and internalize the basic mathematical concepts through concrete objects and situations.
• It enables the students to verify or discover several geometrical properties and facts using models or by paper cutting and folding technique.
• It helps the students to build interest and confidence in learning the subject.
• The laboratory provides opportunity to exhibit the relatedness of mathematical concepts with every day life.
• It provides greater scope for individual participation in the process of learning and becoming autonomous learners.
• It provides scope for greater involvement of both the mind and the hand which facilitate cognition.
• The laboratory allows and encourages students to think, discuss with each other and the teacher and assimilates the concepts in a more effective manner.
• It enables the teacher to demonstrate, explain and reinforce abstract mathematical ideas by using concrete objects, models, charts, graphs, pictures, posters etc.

2.Science Lab:

The science learning goals of laboratory experiences include enhancing mastery of science subject matter, developing scientific reasoning abilities, increasing understanding of the complexity and ambiguity of empirical work, developing practical skills, increasing understanding of the nature of science, cultivating interest in science and science learning, and improving teamwork abilities.
The following are the objectives that may be achieved through Science lab:
• skills – manipulative, inquiry, investigative, organizational, communicative
• concepts – for example, hypothesis, theoretical model, taxonomic category
• cognitive abilities – critical thinking, problem solving, application, analysis, synthesis
• understanding the nature of science – scientific enterprise, scientists and how they work, existence of a multiplicity of scientific methods, interrelationships between science and technology and among the various disciplines of science
• attitudes – for example, curiosity, interest, risk taking, objectivity, precision, confidence, perseverance, satisfaction, responsibility, consensus, collaboration, and liking science

3.English lab:

It is required of any learner to have a good command of the language for communication purposes, with clarity and accuracy being vital for effective and efficient communication. What helps one to acquire such proficiency in a language is the process and the method of learning that language.
The basic purpose of the English lab is to provide students a platform to enhance English language skills, communication skills and to practice soft skills. The main objectives of the Language Laboratory are: To equip the students with good communication skills. To emphasize the need of English in the technical world.
The various objectives of English lab are:
• To expose the students to a variety of self-instructional, learner-friendly modes of English language learning.
• To help the students cultivate the habit of reading sentences, passages from the text book
• To enable them to learn better pronunciation through stress on word accent, intonation, and rhythm.
• To train them to use language effectively to face group discussions, public speaking.
