  31. 31. GAMES TIME… Playing these games was a great pleasure and I thank you so much ma’am for the recommendation. The games were fun to play and I certainly enjoyed playing them on daily basis . Unfortunately I could only reach till the second level in the game of Tower Of Hanoi(4 discs) . The fifth one was a little tough.
  32. 32. FAVOURITES… I found the Sudoku game extremely captivating as I have been playing this game since the age of eight and I have even had this as a hobby to solve the Sudoku in the newspaper everyday. It is an extremely valuable mental exercise which triggers our brain and helps us in working methodically.
  33. 33. MY STORY… This experience made me realize that I still have a room of improvement in the subject of mathematics and also that I have to make my reasoning skills a little better. While playing the games we can relate to their origin in the chapters that we do in school and vice versa . It is even helpful in the conceptual understanding of the chapters.
