● To learn the advantage of ordering information.

**Introduction**

Everyday morning, waking up, brushing teeth, doing
physical exercise, drinking milk, having bath, having breakfast and then getting
ready to school are some of the activities we do.

Everyday such activities happen. Don't they?

Do we see a pattern getting repeated? In our life,
there are many such repeating patterns. In fact , “EAT” ; “ STUDY” ; “ PLAY” ; “
SLEEP” is a pattern repeated daily, isn’t it?

When we go on doing same activities again and again,
it gives rise to a new form.

Let us see some more examples for repeated processes.

* We can see that some patterns are getting repeated
in kolams, so as to get larger kolams.

* In the construction of a wall, a mason places
the bricks one upon another and adds plaster to them in an organized manner repeatedly.
After some days we can see that a nice wall is getting constructed.

* Bees make hives which are formed by the increasing
pattern of hexagons where they can store optimum amount of honey and feed themselves
during winter.

* Take a spot of red
paint, add a little bit of green paint to it. The change in colour cannot be seen
immediately. Add a little more, now, you can see a slight change in the colour.
A little more ….., Hey! don’t you see a different colour now? You add green paint
drop by drop to red paint, you finally get a new colour.

The activities explained above follow *iterative processes**.*

Hence, an ** iterative
process** is a procedure that is repeated many times which gives rise
to a new form.
