The purpose is to sensitise them to the nuances of English and its applications for various communication needs. COURSE CONTENT: Unit-ISemantics: Synonyms, Antonyms, Homophones, Homonyms, Form and function of words Unit-IISyntax: Sentence structures, Verb patterns and their usageUnit-IIIPhonetics: Basic Concepts – Vowels, Consonants, Phonemes, Syllables; Articulation of Speech Sounds – Place and Manner of Articulation; Transcription of words and simple sentences, using International Phonetic Alphabet. Unit-IVComprehension: Listening and Reading comprehension – Note taking, Reviewing, Summarising, Interpreting, Paraphrasing and Précis Writing. Unit-VComposition: Descriptive, Explanatory, Analytical and Argumentative Writing - description of simple objects like instruments, appliances, places, persons, principles; description and explanation of processes and operations; analysis and arguments in the form of debate and group discussion Unit-VIText: English for Students of Science by A.Roy and P.L. Sharma (Orient Longman) Chapters for Study: i) "The year 2050" by Theodore J. Gordon. ii) "The Mushroom of Death" by A. Bandhopadhyay. iii) "The Discovery" by Herman Ould. The prescribed text will be used as a case study for various components of the syllabus. Unit-VII (For Internal Evaluation Only): Book Review – Herein the students will be required to read and submit a review of a book (Literary or non-literary) of their own choice. This will be followed by a presentation of the same in the class. TEXT BOOKS:1. English for Students of Science edited by A. Roy and P.L. Sharma, Orient Longman. 2. Spoken English for India by R.K. Bansal and J.B. Harrison, Orient Longman. 3. Intermediate Grammar, Usage and Composition by M.L. Tickoo and A.E. Subramanian, Orient Longman. SUGGESTED READING: 1. English Grammar, Composition and Correspondence by M.A. Pink and S.E. Thomas, S. Chand and Sons Pvt. Ltd.,Delhi. 2. A Practical English Grammar by Thomson and Martinet, OUP, Delhi. 3. Guide to Patterns and Usage in English by A.S. Hornby, OUP, Delhi. 4. A Textbook of English Phonetics for Indian Students by T. Balasubramanian, MacMillan, Chennai. 5. Better English Pronunciation by J.D.O’Connor, Cambridge Univ. Press, London. 6. English Vocabulary in Use by McCarthy, Foundation Books (Cambridge University Press), Delhi. 7. Assessing Listening by Buck, Foundation Books (Cambridge University Press), Delhi. 8. Reading Between the Lines by McRae, Foundation Books (Cambridge university Press), Delhi. SCHEME OF EXAMINATION:There will be seven questions in all covering all the units, except Unit VII which (besides other modes of internal evaluation) is for internal assessment only. All questions will be compulsory and will have sufficient internal choice. Unit-I: 15 MarksThe question will be set so as to evaluate the following: Usage of the words given, Changing the grammatical quality and function of the words, One word Substitutes, synonyms, antonyms, homophones, homonyms. Unit-II: 20 MarksThere will be one question having different parts. The question should test students’ knowledge of sentence structures and verb patterns. The question can be in the nature of ‘Do as directed’, ‘Tracing and rectifying structural Errors’, ‘Elucidating patterns through sentences and vice-versa’, ‘Changing the word-order’, ‘Synthesizing the sentences’ and ‘Completing the sentences’, etc. Unit-III: 15 MarksThere will be two questions from this Unit. Question one will be in the nature of short notes testing the basic concepts and articulation of speech sounds. The second question would require transcription of individual words and simple sentences. Unit-IV: 15 MarksComprehension and Interpretation of a passage given (Literary or non- literary, newspaper article, story, extract from a speech etc.), will be judged for its vocabulary, general understanding and interpretation of the content in the form of question answer exercise, culling out important points, suggesting a suitable topic/title, summarising and précis writing etc. Unit-V: 15 MarksThe question will require the definition, description, analysis, explanation of various objects and processes. Bedsides, a topic of contemporary relevance may be given for writing a paragraph in any one of the writing forms prescribed in the unit. Unit-VI: 20 MarksThere will be two questions from the text prescribed. The first question will evaluate the comprehension of the text through short answer questions or a long answer question. The second question will judge the linguistic aspect of the text such as using a particular word in its various syntactic forms like noun, adjective, verb etc.; matching the lists of words and their explanation; providing opposite/similar meanings, adding suffixes and prefixes etc. MATH-101-E MATHEMATICS-I ---------- ------------- (COMMON FOR ALL BRANCHES) L T P Class Work : 50 Marks 3 2 - Exam. : 100 Marks Total : 150 Marks Duration of exam. : 3 Hours Part-A Infinite series : Convergence and divergence, Comparison, D' Alembert's ratio, Integral, Raobes, Logrithmic and Cauchy root tests, Alternating series, Absolute and conditional convergence.
