Engaging students to concentrate during the class hours can be difficult around the year. Especially during winter, students seem to be sleepy as they keep themselves warm to battle the cold climate. Sometimes, a student might not be interested in learning a particular subject or a topic in the subject. For instance, he/she might not give heed to learn math. Or a concept in Mathematics like LCM and HCF. Initially, student engagement during class hours was termed as ‘paying attention’, either asking more number of questions or raising hands.
