Module 13

Communicating ideas accurately

Activity 1:

To communicate ideas accurately and coherently

To use language to evaluate quality and accuracy of information

[lo 2.2, 5.5]

You must have three different choices or options of careers

  • Find pictures in magazines or newspapers, which depict three careers you are interested in. After pasting them on a sheet of paper, write a caption for the picture.
  • Also write WHY you have chosen this career.
  • Now “show and tell” the class about your pictures as well as your reasons for choosing certain careers.
  • 1. Choice of careers:

2. Captions:

3. Reasons for choice:

Activity 2:

To evaluate writer’s point of view and to use language to investigate questions

[lo 3.8]

Comprehension - Your Career Options and Choices

  • Read the following article very attentively. Answer the questions that follow in full sentences and in your own words as far as possible.

1. Each year thousands of school children have to decide what to do with their future. Most leave the decision for the last minute and want to decide what to do with their lives when they are in matric. By then, they are so overwhelmed that they cannot make up their minds.

2. The trick is to start as early as possible. When you reach Grade 8, you should have many ideas floating around in your head about possible career options. These should be based on what you are interested in, your personality, your skills and your dreams. You would be extremely fortunate if you were to gain experience by volunteering your services to a company or organisation. Many such ‘job shadowing’ programmes are available. Volunteering your services will aid you in identifying your strong points and enhancing your capabilities. You can also find out what challenges and stimulates you.

3. It is important for high school students, to be sure of which subjects bestsuit their many career options and choices. Also, participating in as many extra-mural activities as possible, will also benefit the learner in terms of what can be learnt outside of school. Doing various projects at school exposes the learners to fantastic facets of development. More than anything, through extramural activities and volunteering your services, you gain self knowledge, develop skills and resources, which in turn enable you to recognise and optimise your potential. Apart from gaining in-depth knowledge about yourself, you also learn to explore life circumstances and discover your areas of effectiveness as well as learning to apply resources learnt in the roles we play.

4. This gives us a chance to consolidate career choices with personal worlds. 5. Above all, you are improving your qualities and your abilities when you join an extramural group and commit yourself to a project. If you are just about to start with high school, this is a good time to think about all facets of your character, and all your personal skills and talents.

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
is it a question of log

algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
Kim Reply
or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
I'm interested in nanotube
what is nanomaterials​ and their applications of sensors.

what is nano technology
Sravani Reply
what is system testing?
preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
