A child of Class III reads 482 as four hundred eighty two but writes it as 40082. What does this indicate for a teacher?
(1) Child is not attentive in the class and is a careless listener
(2) Child is a careful listener but has not established sense of place value
(3) Child is confusing the expression of number in expanded form and in short form
(4) Teacher should teach the concept of place value when the children are able to write numbers correctly

To introduce subtraction of two-digit numbers in Class• 111, a teacher proceeded in the following steps:
Step I: Revision of two-digit numbers with understanding of place value system..
Step II: Use of tally marks to show that smaller number can be subtracted from larger number.
Step III Application of subtraction on numbers under each column of place value.
In this case teacher is developing the lesson
(1) from system concept —* operation  algorithm
(2) from operation —+ system concept algorithm
(3) from algorithm — system concept operation
(4) from system concept —* algorithm operation

“Which two numbers when multiplied give the product 24 ?“  This question
(1) is an open ended question as it has more than one answer
(2) is a closed-ended question as it has) definite number of answers
(3) suggests general problem-solving strategy to the child so that he/she can answer correctly
(4) helps the child to think metacognitively

The students of Class V were able to attempt  the problem 1/2 ÷ 1/3 correctly, but not able to  solve the problem ‘How many 1/3 cake pieces  are there in half a cake ?“. The reason is
(1) students’ language development is poor
(2) problem is of higher difficulty level for Class V
(3) operations on fractions are taught without contextualization and language support
(4) students are not able to understand the mathematical equivalence of the two problems

Hamida always allow her students to observe the number pattern and to form conjectures on their own in order to enhance their mathemical abilities. She wrote the followin problems on board and asked the students to write the answers:
21÷7=
2.1÷0.7=
0.21 ÷ 0.07 =
0.021 ÷ 0.007 =
Through the set of questions she wants the students to observe that
(1) as one factor is divided by 10 and the other is multiplied by 10, the product remains same
(2) as one divisor is decreased by 10 and the other is increased by power of 10, the product remains same
(3) if both the divisor and the dividend are increased or decreased by power of 10, the quotient remains the same
(4) if both the divisor and the dividend are decreased by power of 10, the quotient is also decreased by the power of 10

Piaget believed that learning results from social instruction and a mathematics teacher believing in Piaget’s theory shall use
(1) lots of manipulatives and lab activities in the class

Pradeep was shown a broken ruler

and asked, where is 5 cm on the ruler. He picked up the ruler and pointed at the mark of 5 cm on the ruler. His answer
(1) is correct as he rightly pointed out the mark of 5 cm on the ruler
(2) is incorrect as he is showing a point only and not the distance between two points marked as 0 and 5
(3) is incorrect as the ruler is broken and he must start with 2 and should point at 7 as the desired mark
(4) is reflecting that he has the misconception that 5 cm refers to a point and not to a length

Uma was not able to understand the concept of odd and even numbers. In order to improve her understanding, the teacher took some 20 pebbles of different colours and asked her to pair them up and sort out the numbers from 1 to 20 for which pebbles get paired up or do not get paired up. Uma
(1) is a visual learner
(2) is a kinesthetic learner
(3) is an auditory learner
(4) needs personal attention

(3) can measure the line segment in cms and inches accurately and can mark end points of line segment
(4) can differentiate between line, ray and line segment and can define them

In a class, a teacher asked the students to define a quadrilateral in different ways  — using sides, using angles, using diagonals etc.  The teacher’s objective is to
