Life orientation

Grade 9

Good health and social development

Module 23

An environmental health programme

Activity:

To plan an environmental health programme and ways to implement it in your community

[lo 1.2]

Preparation:

Learners and educators bring regional or local newspapers to school and cut out all the articles that deal with the environment and pollution. For example, they may deal with the pollution of the local river, or air pollution as a result of a coal mine near your town, etc.

Step 1

In class briefly describe the reports or articles and classify each by writing the classification in red above the piece, e.g. Air Pollution.

Step 2

Each learner now writes anonymously the risk area that he or she regards as being the most serious of all on a piece of paper. All these notes are placed in a bag. They are then turned out and sorted by topic, and then counted. The issue that appears on most of the notes, determines the subject to be discussed.

Step 3

Find all the reports that cover the particular subject. Depending on the number of articles and reports on the subject, the learners are divided into groups and each group is given two or more articles and reports if possible.

Step 4

Read the articles and reports carefully and then complete the questionnaire below:

  • What kind of threat to the environment is referred to?
  • Who is the “guilty” party in this case?
  • Who is suffering the greatest disadvantage?
  • How long has the problem existed?
  • Is the problem causing any secondary threat or pollution?
  • Has there been any attempt on behalf of the “guilty” party to solve the problem?
  • Is anyone (a group or an individual) attempting to deal with the matter?
  • How is this group or person demonstrating dissatisfaction?

Groups provide feedback on all the questions through the group leader.

Step 6

Together with the teacher, the groups discuss the matter and further discuss possible ways in which they, as a grade 9 class, can contribute positively towards improving or solving the situation, or at least towards bringing it to the attention of other people. One can consider active, physical involvement, such as cleaning a polluted river, writing a letter to a newspaper, sending a petition to the town council or municipality, or organising a fund-raising event in order to have all the stray dogs vaccinated against rabies. The class can act in more ways than one in order to handle the problem.

Assessment

Learning outcomes(LOs)
LO 1
Promotion of Health The learner will be able to make informed decisions regarding personal, community and environmental health.
Assessment standards (ASs)
We know this when the learner:
1.1 illustrates and evaluates the influence of ecological, social, economic, cultural and political factors on own personal choice of diet;
1.2 develops and implements an environmental health programme;
1.4 critically evaluates resources on health information, health services and a range of treatment options, including HIV/AIDS;
1.5 discusses ways to apply insights gained from participating in an activity related to national health or a safety promotion programme.

how do they get the third part x = (32)5/4
kinnecy Reply
can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
ninjadapaul
20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
ninjadapaul
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
ninjadapaul
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
ninjadapaul
oops. ignore that.
ninjadapaul
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
ninjadapaul
hmm
Abhi
is it a question of log
Abhi
🤔.

or infinite solutions?
Kim
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

what is the application of nanotechnology?
Stotaw
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
Azam
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
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
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
Hello
Uday
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
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.
Ali Reply
the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
