Counting is one of the first skills that a student of mathematics learns. Here we feature an article that observes patterns while counting and generalises this pattern. While the actual combinatorics and use of the binomial theorem may be appreciated only by students of classes 11 and 12, students of High School will certainly be able to follow the reasoning in the two examples given. It is important for students to have such gentle introductions to mathematical notation and theorems used at a more senior level.

Teacher Education Institutions were established in a gradual manner to cater to the needs of teachers in the state. The first Teacher Education Institution under the Theological College was started by the Welsh Mission at Cherrapunjee for training of teachers at the primary level. In 1861, the Government decided to amalgamate the Training School section of the Cherrapunjee Normal School from Nongsawlia to Shillong and attached to the Welsh Mission High School at Mawkhar Shillong. By 1946, the Training School functioned in the same building.

India is home to an extraordinary variety of climatic regions, ranging from tropical in the south to temperate in the Himalayan north, where elevated regions receive sustained winter snowfall. The nation's climate is strongly influenced by the Himalayas and The Thar Desert.Though the Tropic of Cancer—the boundary between the tropics and subtropics—passes through the middle of India, the bulk of the country can be regarded as climatically tropical.

Black Holes (BHs) are the standard-bearers of cool Physics. Pop culture is full of references to these objects that are so powerful that nothing can escape them. A lot of Physicists have spent their lives thinking about how BHs are formed, how they can be detected and what happens to objects that enter a BH.

The activities in these handbooks developed by Centre For Environmental Education have been made to encourage students to observe and explore their environment; to understand relationships in nature, and between humans and nature; and to learn better how humans are an integral part of the intricate web of life. We believe that learning can be more fun, both for the student and the teacher, when based on real experiences.

If you have a slight teeny-weeny interest in mathematics then you must have heard of Gauss’childhood story.
As an elementary student he amazed his teacher by quickly finding the sum of the integers from 1 to 100. Gauss recognized he had fifty pairs of numbers when he added the first and last number in the series, the second and second-last number in the series, and so on. For example: (1 + 100), (2 + 99), (3 + 98), . . . , and each pair has a sum of 101.
