Math Story : Oval And It’s Properties
The Rescue Of Triho
Triho, Cirha, Cirho and Squarho : Hello Uncle Math!
Uncle Math : Hello kids, are you ready to learn?
Squarho : Yes, Uncle Math we are ready. What are we learning today?
Uncle Math : We will learn about ‘oval’.
Cirha : Oval! What is that, Uncle Math?
Uncle Math : Oval is an elongated, circle-like shape.
Squarho : Uncle Math, does an oval shape look like a squeezed circle?
Uncle Math : Yes, you are right, Squarho. Look kids, this is a watermelon, it is oval in shape.
Uncle Math : This is an egg. Eggs are also oval in shape. The oval shape has no straight sides and no corners.
Uncle Math : This is all about today’s class. I hope you all understood the oval shape today.
Cirho : Yes, Uncle Math.
Narrator : Kids are returning home after a fun filled learning with Uncle Math.
Triho, Cirha, Cirho and Squarho : Bye Uncle Math!
Uncle Math : Bye kids!
[Cirha is puzzled]
Cirha : Oh no! Asquarho. What is he up to?
Narrator : In the blink of an eye, Asquarho pulls Triho into his spaceship!
Triho : Help! Help!
Asquarho : Ha ha! I am Asquarho, I will take away Triho.
[Cirha is worried]
Cirha : Oh no!
Uncle Math : Come on, let us follow Asquarho’s spaceship.
Squarho : Poor Triho! He is trapped at the back. Let us think of an idea to save him.
Narrator : Cirho gets an idea and fearlessly jumps out of the spaceship.
Cirho : Squarho, hold my hand tightly.
Narrator : In an attempt to catch Asquarho’s spaceship, Cirho flings toward the spaceship.
Narrator : Asquarho tries to escape, but Cirho grabs hold of his spaceship by stretching himself.
Narrator : Cirho manages to pull Triho away from Asquarho, and they both return to their spaceship quickly.
[Asquarho is angry]
Asquarho : Argh! I will come back again.
Cirha : Hurray! You did it Cirho.
Triho : Thank you so much everyone for saving me from Asquarho.
Uncle Math : Good job Cirho! Your fearless attitude has saved Triho today. Let us head back to Samper town.
[Squarho is puzzled]
Squarho : Cirho, you look so different. You look like an egg.
Cirha : Isn’t he looking like a watermelon?
Triho : Ha! ha! ha! Yes, Cirho is looking like an oval but how is this possible Uncle Math?
Uncle Math : As Cirho is circular in shape, when stretched on both sides, he becomes an oval. Oval shapes have no straight sides and no corners.
Squarho : Can we call you Ovalo, as you are an oval now?
[Cirho is crying]
Cirho : I don’t want to be Ovalo! I want to turn back into Cirho.
Uncle Math : No fear, when I am here! You can turn back into a circle. We need to put equal pressure on Cirho from both sides. It will turn him back into a circle. I along with Squarho will push from one side, while Triho and Cirha can push from the other side.
Narrator : Uncle Math and Squarho push Cirho from one side, whereas Triho and Cirha push from the opposite side until Cirho turns back into a circle.
Cirho : Hurray! I am a circle again.
Narrator : All the kids jump with joy.
