Books, for the mind

Module 2

It’s good to read

Activity 1

To prove enjoyment of reading a variety [lo 3.1.1]

LITERATURE MEMORIES

The brain is an amazing organ. No computer designed by man can beat it. You have so many memories stored within your brain. What you need to do for this exercise is call back some of your literature memories. All those stories you have ever heard or read need to be recalled. See how good your memory is by listing books, characters or authors you know.

Activity 2

To describe how you feel about a book and give reasons for it [lo 3.3]

READING AND VIEWING

Let’s see if you can use your powers of observation and put your opinion on the line.

In order to do this you will need to collect some book reviews (movie reviews will also help) from magazines and newspapers. Discuss within your group what a book review is and how you would go about making one of your favourite book. Decide what method you plan to use to evaluate your book - what scale (1 to 4?) and what symbol (**?)

Now that you have all the necessary information at your fingertips, JUST DO IT.

What you need to do

  • Choose your book
  • Tantalise your reader with snippets of the storyline without giving too much away.
  • Rate the book using your chosen scale and symbols. Your teacher will supply you with special paper for this task.
  • Exchange your book and book review with your group members.
  • After reading the new book, rate it according to YOUR OPINION .

Assessment

LEARNING OUTCOME 3: READING AND VIEWING The learner is able to read and view for information and enjoyment, and to respond critically to the aesthetic, cultural and emotional values in texts.

Assessment Standard

We know this when the learner:

3.1 reads a variety of South African and international fiction and non-fiction texts for different purposes (e.g. poems, stories, myths, brochures, reference books and text-books);

3.1.1 reads independently using a variety of reading and comprehension strategies appropriate for different purposes;

3.3 describes feelings about the text (factual or literary, visual or multimedia), giving reasons;

3.11 interprets simple visual texts (tables, charts, posters, graphs, maps) and can change text from one form to another (e.g. graph to explanatory paragraph).

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.

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
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

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.

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